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. 

The Kurono Toki Anniversary is a special edition made with a dial that honors the Japanese ibis, a bird whose plumage is reminiscent of the rising sun. Housed in a 37mm stainless steel case, this particular Toki Anniversary watch features a metallic coral radial sunburst dial, applied quadrant indices with a matching syringe handset, an unsigned crown, a sapphire crystal, the workhorse Miyota 90S5 automatic movement, and a black calf leather strap with a signed pin buckle.

One thing’s for sure: Few contemporary watches feature this kind of flair for this kind of money!

Overall Condition

Case is in outstanding, virtually unworn condition overall showing only faint wear from gentle use. Sunburst coral dial with applied quadrant indices is in as-new condition with matching 'syringe' handset. Unsigned crown.

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.
