[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.
| A mechanical wristwatch that starts to move when you wind the crown by hand.
The copper bezel and brass case give it a unique antique feel.
A mechanical hand-wound watch that you will fall in love with when you feel the movement of the watch.
Mechanical watches do not contain batteries. It is a complex machine that winds the mainspring inside by winding the crown (knob on the right side), and uses the unwinding force of the mainspring to rotate the gears and keep time.
It's a very delicate watch, but if you wind the crown at the same time every day, it will last a lifetime.
It is a size that can be worn by both men and women.
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.
It has a see-through back design, so you can enjoy the movement of the movement on both sides.
Now that hassle-free self-winding and quartz watches have become widespread, more and more watch enthusiasts are choosing manual-winding types that require the work of "winding the mainspring by hand."
The trouble of winding the mainspring by hand is like grinding coffee beans in a mill.
Because it is a full skeleton specification, you can see how each part interlocks intricately and ticks the time. Not only is it a practical gadget, but it can also be a hobby item that pleases the owner's eyes.
| 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 sewing machine stitch becomes a 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.
