Here we have a 2022 Kurono Tokyo Chronograph 1 MK.2 with a newly designed polished 38mm three-part stainless steel case and curvaceous tapered lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 46mm and a case thickness of 13mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, we have the chronograph piston pushers and a large crown in the centre. The smooth polished bezel holds a sapphire box crystal above a stunning salmon-coloured dial that has a subtle curve to it from the centre to its edge, pulsation and tachymeter scales surround a minute track precisely executed with Arabic numerals printed in black, applied polished steel 12 and the characteristic steel studs mark the hours, at 6 o’clock a framed date window, the black recessed sub-dials consist of a 30-minute and continuous second counter with a traditional Japanese 'kyudo' arrow at 9 o’clock. Elegant signature Kurono Tokyo hands, and at 12 o’clock we have the Kurono Tokyo motif and at 6 o’clock “Automatic Chronograph”. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with the details of the watch embossed around its edge, inside an automatic Caliber NE86, 34 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, a true workhorse flagship column-wheel chronograph movement made by Seiko. The watch comes fitted on a 20mm black leather strap and the watch comes with its Kurono Tokyo presentation box and paperwork.
2022 was the year of Kurono Tokyo, we have seen the brand continue to rise in popularity and the prices continue to climb on the secondary market, that has slowed down a little and now prices seem to be settling which is great to see as it means collectors can start to pick them up for sensible prices, like this one. Feel free to book an appointment and come try it on yourself.
Hajime Asaoka founded Kurono Tokyo in 2019, he is a Japanese watchmaker, one of only two members of AHCI (AHCI — Académie horlogère des créateurs indépendants). 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 with the same DNA as his more bespoke watches, each watch is offered in limited numbers and in the case of the Chronograph 2 was offered for only 10 minutes and was sold out in 2 to 3 minutes. Production is controlled through Precision Watch Tokyo Co.Ltd, the very same company that Hajime Asaoka uses for his handmade creations.
