Japanese watchmaker Hajime Asaoka’s Kurono Tokyo brand is set to release its first calendar watch this week.

The Kurono Calendrier Type I is a complete calendar – displaying date, day and month – with coin-edge bezel that marks a new, more rugged design style from Asaoka, while still representing his “penchant for the vintage romanticism of the art-deco era.”

Asaoka intends the watch “to be worn regularly and to develop character over time” with a design  that “allows for and embraces scratches,” making for a fairly esoteric ‘beater’.

“Blemishes accumulated are unique to the wearer and is a written record of his journey and adventures through life,” says Hajime Asaoka. “Owners should spend their time in meaningful pursuits rather than worry about scratches. Hence the design embraces such blemishes, adds character, and looks better over time.”

The Calendrier Type 1’s khaki dial features white Arabic numeral hour markers in a bold ‘blacklettered’ gothic typeface, framed by a railway track minute scale and recessed, snailed sub-dials.

Housed inside a 38mm 316L stainless steel case water resistant to 50m is the seldom seen Japanese Miyota 9122 automatic movement with centre seconds, 40-hour power reserve and full calendar, which also means the watch is fully Japanese made.

The Kurono Calendrier ‘Type I’ – which is listed as a limited edition, although Kurono hasn’t revealed a number – goes on sale at 10AM EST on August 11, priced $1,787 USD, with a number reserved for Japanese customers.

Elsewhere in watches, Adsum and Timex collaborate for the first time.
