I think I’m going to grab this as opposed to the Sobrinos. The Sobrinos lugs of 53mm L to L is too crazy for me. I just need a good pice on a used one. The hunt and chase is on.

Hajime Asaoka's makes watches in his workshop, they have a $50,000 price for his handmade watches. Apparently he has started Kurono Tokyo watches with prices of $2,000.00-5,000.00. This is much more my speed.
In memory of TB/Phfluff, since he isn’t here to continue to give his praise, I will share it for him.

It's got a Lionel HO scale train track!

Nice salmon dial. I like the hands, too.

Price is too high.
I’m not crazy about the price either, but I’m looking at it like ground floor Nomos before the prices went up. A watch from Hajime Asaoka is kind of a big deal.
Plus when I get one it will take my mind off of the beautiful Sobrinos salmon Flameante dial with the stupid 53mm lug to lug length.

Here is a quick write up on Kurono by worn and wound. I chose the short one so as to not bore anyone, if you want more info on Hajime Asaoka, it’s easy to find.

Another discerning addition to the 'ol collection-

Look forward to hearing what you think of the 90S5 - not much out there about it yet.
