Founded in 2018 as a means for legendary Japanese watchmaker Hajime Asaoka to create serial production pieces, Kurono Tokyo stands as one of the most exciting microbrands in today's watchmaking industry. With Hajime's reputation as an exceptional watchmaker secured from decades of recognition for designing one-off timepieces in close collaboration with his clients, it was never in doubt that his serial production brand would take off. Launched in 2021 as a very real testament to that success, the Chronograph 2 was, as its name suggests, the brand's second chronograph model following on from the well-received Chronograph 1. Designed with light-play in mind, Kurono blended light and dark elements of the Chronograph 2’s dial with various textures and polished furniture and surrounds to create a beautifully elegant dial that deserves the Kurono name. Furthermore, with a polished 38mm steel case and domed sapphire crystal, the Chronograph 2 is a pleasure to wear as it draws you in with every slight flick of the wrist.
