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.
|Watanabe Koubou's retro Japanese clock "Wa no Toki"
The bold index in large letters will make you feel better.
Large letters (Kanji numerals) are used for the letters, and there is a sober Japanese atmosphere.
From Watanabe Koubou's popular Japanese clock series "Wa no Toki" comes a big face type with a small second.
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.
There is a small second hand at the 3 o'clock position.
One of the charms of small seconds is the ease of reading the time. The second hand does not overlap the hour and minute hands, ensuring high visibility.
The simple round case is sleek and not too overbearing, so the dial stands out.
The brass case with an antique texture has a taste unique to handmade.
The more you use it, the more antique it will look.
The back cover is stainless steel.
There is a crown at 12 o'clock, so it looks like a pocket watch face.
Small seconds is a traditional display format that has been used since pocket watches were the mainstream, before wristwatches were born. Therefore, it creates a retro atmosphere and gives a classic and mature impression.
In addition, since center seconds (a common three-needle type) watches are more commonly used, using a small seconds allows you to casually show off your individuality.
