Kurono Watches

Post by koimaster » May 20th 2021, 2:54pm

"Personally, I wanted a good, reliable and reasonably price watch I can use as a daily wearer. 25 years ago, one could get such a watch at ¥200,000 - but it is very hard these days, and even less so from an independent watchmaker.


As an independent watchmaker that produces very high-end watches by hand, those production numbers are very small. Additionally, the costs involved in making my atelier watches are high. So it has always been my worry that there will be a segment of customers that want a Hajime Asaoka watch, but will not be able to get one easily if at all.


So I wanted to create something that was more easily accessible, and faster to deliver. Whether for watch collecting enthusiasts, existing atelier watch owners, or just for someone looking for a good watch - I think this mania can be satisfied."

I'm curious what you think of these, because they are so Japanese. Especially this anniversary watch. I just don't know if they translate to Western sensibilities. And Asaoka-san, this is clearly a man who, were he raised in the America of our youth, would be intimately familiar with the swirly. And atomic wedgie.

A Miyota for over $1.7K. Fucking fleecers. They have no honour, they should commit bukkake, or whatever that Japanese suicide is called.
