KURONO Anniversary Green ‘森:mori’

The Kurono Anniversary Green ‘森:mori’ watch continues the iconic art-deco design introduced by Hajime Asaoka, with its single-piece dial encased beneath a high-curvature box-sapphire crystal that mimics acrylic glass of the past, and provides a unique light-play. The dial is a specially picked color by Hajime-san in scintillating metallic green with a subtle radial sunburst pattern.

Depending on how the light hits at different times of the day or from different angles, the dial displays shades of viridian and emerald, to pine and forest green. This ‘light play’ is further accentuated by the magnification effect of the box-sapphire, as well as the polished dial elements and hands.

This Kurono watch features a 316 steel case with a solid case back, uses a Japanese-made mechanical self-winding ebauche movement with a power reserve of 40 hours. Its size is 37mm due to Hajime-san’s preference for timeless and more classical dimensions but wears larger due to the design of the lugs.
