Watanabe Kobo Handmade Watch Open Heart Manual Winding Brass Cushion Case 38mm Arabic Numerals Sewing Machine Stitch Belt [BHW144-MS]
[Made-to-order] 3-4 weeks
Mr. Masaaki Watanabe of Watanabe Koubou is a watchmaker who makes watches one by one by hand at his workshop in downtown Tokyo. We have worked on many watch works that are full of warmth and a tasteful expression unique to handmade.
Mr. Watanabe does everything by hand, from making watch parts such as cases, dials, and belts to assembling them.
|An open heart model that allows you to see the movement of the machine from a part of the dial. It is a soothing work that moves like a human heartbeat.|
The movements of the movement can be seen through the small window, and it looks like a human heartbeat. You will be healed by the sound of the second hand that sounds quietly, "Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick".
The hand-wound type winds the mainspring by turning the crown manually. The back of the case is a skeleton specification, and you can enjoy the movement of the movement that ticks the time.
The brass case with an antique texture has a taste unique to handmade.
The more you use it, the more antique it will look.
By winding the mainspring fully with the crown on the right side, it will continue to work for a day to a day and a half.
The see-through back allows you to enjoy the movement of the movement.
The trouble of winding the mainspring by hand is like grinding coffee beans in a mill.
| Genuine cowhide with good texture is used for the material of the belt.|
It has a firm thickness, excellent durability, and an elegant appearance.
The line of the sewing machine stitch becomes the casual accent

|Points to note when ordering|
Most of our products are made-to-order, so it takes about 3 weeks to 1 month for delivery. Christmas, Valentine's Day, and the gift season before White Day tend to take longer to produce. If you are thinking of giving it as a gift, please consider the delivery date before ordering.
The warranty period is one year from the date of purchase. However, only internal failures are covered by the warranty, and external parts such as cases and belts are not covered by the warranty.
It is not waterproof, so please be careful when working on rainy days or around water.
Since it is a hand-wound watch, it will stop unless the mainspring is wound up. Please note that winding the mainspring too much may cause it to break.
A hand-wound watch does not have a second hand stop function. The second hand does not stop when setting the time.
The color may change depending on the color of the case and belt, such as eyelets and buckles. We would appreciate it if you could order it after understanding that it is one of the features and charms of handmade watches.
