Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) has moved online and Baselworld 2020 is canceled, but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. Stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases here.
Produced in small batches by the high-end Japanese watchmaker Hajime Asaoka, Kurono-branded timepieces offer a more affordable take on his signature style. With an Art Deco flair, the brand’s basic three-hand watch design now comes with a green dial in a limited run of just 50 examples to mark the brand’s first anniversary.
Green seems to be the unofficial dial color of 2020, and here the brand has gone with a metallic finish that compliments the watch’s design well. The color is referenced in the model’s name, Anniversary Green Mori — mori meaning “forest” in Japanese. The brand uses “the same case and dial makers that supply to Grand Seiko” and the watches are powered by the Miyota 90S5 automatic movement.
Each of the 50 Kurono Anniversary Green Mori watches is assembled by hand with a price of $1,790 and is sure to sell out quickly when orders open at 10:30pm Japan time on May 22nd, 2020.
