"We wanted to make a super high-quality one which has 'the smallest, the longest rotation and the smoothest' features, we wanted to prove the precision of our bearing by creating a fidget spinner which spins the longest," said project leader Shigeru None.

A team of eight people spent two months crafting the record-breaking fidget spinner.

The company used its existing record-breaking product, the smallest commercially available steel ball bearing, which measures 1.499 millimeters.

The tiny fidget spinner weighs .00095 ounces, has a radius of .11 inches and is .06 inches thick with its button included and .02 without it.

The world's largest fidget spinner, created by Tony Fisher of England, has a diameter of 11 feet.

None said fidget spinners are "not yet perfect" from a professional standpoint and he hopes young engineers salespeople and sales technicians are proud of taking part in the record-breaking creation.

"If you were conscious of 'the squeaky wheel gets the grease' and 'do work happily', you can reach the top," he said.
