The Watch

Here we have a 2019 Kurono Tokyo Mystic Grey 1st Generation released in only a 10-minute window for ordering and immediately sold out, released as a batch of 150 watches in 2019, 50 Mystic Grey, 50 Midnight Blue and 50 Eggshell White. The 37mm high-polished stainless steel case curves over your wrist with a lug-to-lug length of 43mm and a case thickness of 10mm ensuring a comfortable fit. Taking its design cues from the Art Deco timepieces of the past. On the right side is a domed crown. The polished smooth bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal giving the illusion of the plexiglass crystals of the past, the beautiful shade of metallic Mystic Grey with its radial sunburst. Under different lighting conditions, the dial shimmers in the light as you rotate your wrist. An outer minute track is precisely printed, three engraved concentric steel rings with four applied baton indexes catch the light in a mesmerising way. Sculpted brushed Kurono Tokyo hands complemented by a tapered teardrop balanced sweeping second hand finishing this elegantly understated vision of Japanese creativity and sensibility. The brand motif is found at 12 o’clock with Automatic at 6 o’clock. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with the brand motif and details of the designer engraved into it, inside an automatic Miyota 90S5, 24 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour, this movement is part of the high-grade Miyota family with hand winding and hacking for your convenience. The watch comes fitted on a Kurono Tokyo 20mm leather strap with a pin buckle and also comes with its Kurono Tokyo presentation box and papers.


Personal Note

Considering this Kurono Tokyo Mystic Grey is one of the first Kurono Tokyo releases I am blown away that it is easily now one of my favourites! The dial is mesmerising and the reflections caused by the highly polished rings and hands make for an incredibly dynamic wearing experience. I wouldn't hesitate on this one if you are interested, they don't appear too often on the market.


The Brand

Kurono Tokyo was founded by Hajime Asaoka in 2019. He is a Japanese watchmaker, one of only two members of AHCI (AHCI ‚ÄĒ Acad√©mie horlog√®re des cr√©ateurs ind√©pendants). Academy of independent watch artists, since 2015. Renowned for very low production handcrafted watches that sell for upwards of ¬£120,000. He decided to offer a more affordable timepiece that has the same DNA as his more bespoke watches. Each watch is offered in limited numbers and in the case of this watch was offered for only 10 minutes and was immediately sold out. Production is controlled through Precision Watch Tokyo Co.Ltd, the very same company that Hajime Asaoka uses for his handmade creations.
