The Kurono Calendrier ‘Type I’ is a complete calendar watch with a classic coin-edged bezel that ushers in a new design language by master watchmaker Hajime Asaoka – designed for the gentleman adventurer but still firmly rooted in his penchant for the vintage romanticism of the art-deco era.
Its design intent is for it to be worn regularly and to develop character over time – a design that allows for and embraces scratches. “Blemishes accumulated are unique to the wearer and is a written record of his journey and adventures through life. 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,” said Hajime Asaoka.
The design of the Calendrier ‘Type I’ has been calculated to enhance the three-dimensionality of the iconic Kurono hands and the symmetry of the dial. It aims to evoke a sense of refined adventure – with its new high-polish coin edge bezel and khaki dial interplaying with an audacious blacklettered vintage typeface to evoke a bold regimental atmosphere for the wrist. Guilloche sub-dials with high-polish hands hint at the mechanical complexity of its triple calendar complication, with the mood accentuated by railway-track minute markers at the periphery.
