Why We Love it

What if you could combine the best in vintage vibe with modern tech for the perfect everyday watch? Well, now you can.

Japanese independent Kurono Tokyo is the brainchild of watchmaker Hajime Asaoka. Under the mandate of bringing Asaoka’s design sensibility to the masses using assembly line manufacturing — rather than the handmade haute horlogerie pieces for which he is primarily known — the company is able to offer beautiful watches for several thousand dollars, rather than tens of thousands. 

This particular watch, the Chronograph 1, dates to circa 2020 and features a 38mm stainless steel case, barrel pushers, a box sapphire crystal, an unsigned crown, a handsome, multi-tone black dial with white sub-registers, an outer tachymeter scale, and a matching syringe handset. In outstanding condition showing only faint wear, it comes paired to a black calf leather strap measuring 20mm at the lugs with a steel pin buckle.

Powering the Chronograph 1 is the mechanical Seiko NE86A movement, with column wheel actuation and a vertical clutch for that classic chronograph feel. Featuring 34 jewels and a power reserve of 45 hours, it’s the perfect Japanese pairing for this beauty of a watch.

Limited to just 68 pieces in each dial variant, the Chronograph 1 sold out quickly. Now’s your chance to snag one!

Brand Story

+
Hasime Asaoka is one of the most celebrated boutique watchmakers in Japan. Customers will pay tens of thousands for one of his designs, and his renown in the international market is growing. However, Asaoka himself worried that not everyone who wanted one of his watches would be able to afford one, so he founded a second brand, Kurono Tokyo, to “create something that was more easily accessible, and faster to deliver.”

Kurono Tokyo offers beautiful, vintage-inspired watches in highly wearable sizes for a few thousand dollars, rather than tens of thousands. Often available in striking colorways, they feature faces made by one of Japan’s finest dial markers, stainless steel cases and solid case backs, and robust Miyota movements.

Unabashedly Japanese in their attention to detail and craftsmanship but borrowing from midcentury European watchmaking design language, Kurono Tokyo timepieces are a cut above the average “microbrand” watch, yet still wildly affordable compared to the wares from many high-end independents.
