Kurono Tokyo Reiwa Copper - 2019
Kurono Tokyo Reiwa Copper
If you missed out on the recent Kurono Tokyo pieces, here's your chance to up one of our favourite pieces so far released from the atelier.
For those unaware of Kurono Tokyo, it is the sub-brand of renowned independent watchmaker Hajime Asaoka, whom is widely regarded as one of the top watchmakers in the world. His watches are produced in extremely limited numbers, each an individual commission that can take years to deliver. In order to allow some of his magic to be enjoyed by the wider public, he created the Kurono Tokyo brand. These watches are designed by Hajime-san, but utilise components created to his specification from external manufacturers. Each watch then passes through his hands to ensure the quality is worthy of his name.
Though released at very accessible price points, they have amassed a huge following within the independent watch community and each release sells out in under 5 minutes. This has led to extremely high demand on the secondary market, and it seems everyone wants in on the Kurono action.
When you take a closer look at this Reiwa, it’s not hard to see why. The first watch designed by Hajime in the new reign of Emperor Naruhito, it features the usual stainless 37mm, but houses a spectacular two-part dial. This partcular variant is the Copper dial, and looks absolutely spectacular in person. It is powered by the usual 90S5 high-grade Miyota movement, and is assembled in Japan by hand.
This particular piece presents TZ near mint condition. Case shows a few light swirl marks, a few rub marks on the side of the case and the very feint marks on the case back. See images for full condition details.
Comes with outer box, inner box, instruction manual and warranty booklet.
If you can’t tell, we’re huge fans of Kurono here at Watch Vault. Unfortunately when the Reiwa was released we hesitated, and they sold out. We have regretted that decision ever since then. If you are in the same boat as us, then don't let this example slip through your fingers as the prices just seem to continue marching on.
