Watanabe Koubou Handmade Watch Slanted Dial “Wanokoku 4” 5-sen Coin Round Case Men's Brass 33mm [NW-377]
| 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. There is a wide variety of products, from simple designs that can be used for both casual and business purposes, to unique models that incorporate originality and ingenuity. Watches created through a very time-consuming process give warmth and healing that ready-made products do not have.
For the material of the case, we use materials such as brass and silver that can be enjoyed over time. The leather belt is made of genuine leather that is thick yet fits well, giving it a sense of quality and presence. With the flow of time, you will grow attached to it - it is overflowing with such warmth.
|After washing the coins, Mr. Watanabe will smoke and polish them again. The 12 o'clock position is tilted at an angle of 60 degrees, a novel design that has never been seen before!
Large letters (Kanji numerals) are used for the letters, and there is a sober Japanese atmosphere.
(The belt color in the photo is "brown")
Since the number of coins is limited, it is a handmade watch with high rarity.
Since 12 o'clock is at the original 2 o'clock position, it is easy to see without bending your arm.

A coin with a hole that looks just like a 50-yen coin in modern Japan. This was actually used in the Taisho period, and the bold design that makes use of the holes in the center of the clock is impressive.
Moreover, the dial is slanted, and the 12 o'clock position is where the 2 o'clock position should be. It has the advantage of being easy to see the watch in a natural state without having to bend your hand when looking at the watch.
Mr. Watanabe, the artist, washed the coins once. In order to bring out the atmosphere, it has been smoked and polished again, giving it a well-used look.
The brass case is a simple round instep. The dial stands out because it is smooth and not overly assertive.
