[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 tasteful pocket watch with bold indexes. A mechanical movement that starts to move when the crown is wound by hand, and you can feel the goodness of analog.|
Large letters (Kanji numerals) are used for the letters, and there is a sober Japanese atmosphere.
Watanabe Koubou's popular Japanese clock series "Wa no Toki" introduces a mechanical movement that allows you to feel the goodness of analog, which starts by winding the crown by hand.
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.
By winding the mainspring fully with the crown, it will continue to work for a day to a day and a half.
The brass case with an antique texture has a taste unique to handmade.
The more you use it, the more antique it will look.
It has a see-through back design, so you can enjoy the movement of the movement on both sides.
With just the right amount of presence, it can be used as an accent for coordination. (Men, arm circumference approx. 17 cm).
Attractive item with full skeleton mechanical parts and antique pocket watch The well-used brass case and dial have a unique handmade taste. The more you use it, the more antique it will look.
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.
