“ARKRAFT” Hidekazu Araki is a watchmaker who makes watches by hand one by one in Taito Ward, Tokyo, which is known as a town of craftsmen such as leather goods and metal crafts.

The brand name "ARKRAFT" is derived from Mr. Araki's abbreviated signature "ARK", the German word "kraft" which means productive and creative power, and the etymology of "art" and "arm". Derived from "ar-" which means connection or adaptation. While following the design based on the tradition of wristwatches, we are always conscious of fusing the taste and warmth unique to handmade, and each one is carefully produced.

Mr. Araki studied under Mr. Koji Shinohara, a pioneer of hand-made watches and representative of JHA (Japan Handcraft watch Association). . Hand-written numbers have been added to the basic design of the dial. We are working on a watch with a sense of fun. In addition, the material of the case is brass, and the belt is mainly made of high-quality leather tanned with vegetable tannins, and the taste will deepen with use.

Mr. Araki's watches, which combine universality and originality, can be used casually or for business, and can be worn by both men and women. Watches created through a time-consuming process give you warmth and healing that ready-made products don't have, and you can feel the enjoyment of time as they change over time.


Jagged coin edge case,
It features a square design that protects the joint of the belt and the crown.



Dial expressed in black paint without numbers based on ivory color (The belt color in the photo is "Ibiza dark brown")



The needles are dyed to look burnt, giving them a retro feel.


The color is a simple dial with black and ivory. The black part is painted without numbers. Not a printed dial.

For a more vintage look, the needles are dyed to look burnt and have an atmosphere.

And the solid brass case is cool. A coin edge is used for the round edge, and the cool point is that it reminds us of jagged British coins and manholes.

This is a W strap specification that draws out the charm of a sturdy watch and is gentle on the skin. The back cover is covered with a strap, so it feels good on the wrist.

Tempesti Mine

Two-ply leather, thickness approx. 3mm/stitch color is dark brown
"Mine" is a leather made by tempesti in Tuscany, Italy, using raw leather from Scandinavia and tanned with vegetable tannins. It is finished in a transparent color with excellent flexibility. Tempesti is a thin leather of less than 2 mm, so the back of the belt is made of two layers of lacette tanned pigskin leather that is gentle on the skin and sewn together.

Tempesti Ibiza

Double layered leather, 3mm thickness, dark brown stitching
Full vegetable oiled leather made by Tempesti in Tuscany, Italy. Leather with fine texture and no wrinkles. It has a matte atmosphere, but it is glossy and elegant. Colors other than black have the characteristic that when the leather is rubbed, the oil contained in the leather moves and the color becomes brighter. Tempesti is a thin leather of less than 2 mm, so the back of the belt is made of two layers of lacette tanned pigskin leather that is gentle on the skin and sewn together.

Havana

Double layered leather, 3mm thickness, dark brown stitching
* Due to the manufacturing method, individual differences in finish may be greater than other leathers, but please understand in advance as a characteristic of this leather.
"Havana" is a leather made by BADARASSI in Florence, Italy, using the traditional "vachetta method", in which oil is slowly impregnated into cowhide tanned with vegetable tannins. It is made by recreating the classic recipe from the 18th century, when leather was made to be used for furniture, tools and clothes. No effort has been spared to create a finish that retains the original strength and expression of the leather, and the atmosphere changes in an easy-to-understand manner as you use it, making it a leather that you will become very attached to.
Havana leather is a little less than 2mm thin, so the back of the belt is made of two layers of leather that are sewn together with lacette tanned pigskin that is gentle on the skin. Leather characterized by uneven texture. The color of the convex part is darker. The atmosphere of the leather is calm and slightly glossy.

Draro

Double layered leather, 3mm thickness, dark brown stitching
"Drallo" is a embossed and processed Buttero from Walpier, Italy. Speaking of Walpier, Buttero is the most famous, and this "Drolla" leather is made by using Buttero as a base, embossing it with a embossed texture, and then processing it from above.
Embossing not only makes the surface of the leather uneven, but also makes the surface somewhat harder and tighter, making it less likely to be scratched.
In addition, by applying a little heat, a shaded expression is created, and even though it is tannin leather, even a little water seeps in slowly and strongly.
As you use it, the luster will increase and the color will change, so you can enjoy aging as well.

Pueblo

Double layered leather, 3mm thickness, dark brown stitching
"Pueblo" is a vegetable tanned leather made by Badarassi Carro in Florence, Italy, using the traditional "vachetta method", in which the oil obtained from cow's legs is soaked into the leather over time. This leather is sanded by hand one by one, giving it a unique unevenness and a vintage look. The more you use it, the more you get a taste that you can't get with other leather.
Pueblo is a thin leather of less than 2 mm, so the back of the belt is made of two layers of leather that is sewn together with lacette tanned pigskin that is gentle on the skin.

lebron

Double layered leather, 3mm thickness, dark brown stitching
Vegetable tanned "Reblon" manufactured by Ottocento in Italy. Revlon has a vintage feel from the beginning, and when you use it, it has a wonderful luster. It is relatively soft leather.
