NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 1D

NAOYA HIDA & Co. has launched NH TYPE1D, the fourth model in its TYPE1 series.

It is a new addition to the Japanese luxury watch brand’s mechanical watch series featuring a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The first two models in this line-up are NH TYPE 1B & NH TYPE1C. Both of them are now sold out and discontinued.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 1D

In comparison with its predecessors, NH TYPE1D features some design enhancements. Made of SUS 904L stainless steel, it features a screw-in caseback where as the earlier models were launched with snap on case-backs. The lateral shape of the lugs has also been changed.

The seconds scale on the small seconds circle at 9 o’clock is now a separate component. Additionally, supplier and material of the leather strap supplied as standard changed.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 1D

The design of NH TYPE1D is based on vintage watches from the 1930s and 1950s, but with a modern and practical case diameter of 37 mm. It also features a curved sapphire crystal glass on the top.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 1D

This NAOYA HIDA & Co. watch comes with a German silver dial featuring blued hands and a small seconds dial. The Breguet numerals on the dial are entirely hand-engraved by skilled craftsmen. The unique finish of the hour markers is a result of applying synthetic lacquer (cashew). The hands are hand polished after cutting with micro-fabrication machine.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 1D

The NH TYPE1D is driven by a manual-winding movement Ca.3019SS, which incorporates a newly developed click mechanism in the base movement, the ETA Valjoux 7750.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

Japanese luxury watch brand NAOYA HIDA & Co. presents NH TYPE 2C-1, a new timepiece created in collaboration with Mark Cho, co-founder of THE ARMOURY.

THE ARMOURY is a men’s lifestyle brand known for its distinctive products curated from exceptional craftsmen and factories. It has showrooms in Hong Kong and New York.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

The NH TYPE 2C-1 is based on NAOYA HIDA’s newly introduced NH TYPE 2C watch. To create this collaborative series, some modifications have been applied.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

Firstly, all 12 indexes have been replaced by THE ARMOURY “Lettercutter” Arabic font selected by Mark Cho. The artificial lacquer poured over the 12 Arabic indexes is now dark blue instead of black.

For the dial, the designers took some cues from the brand’s now sold-out NH TYPE2B watch also. Inspired by this model, the seconds line on the outer edge of the dial was extended to the inner bezel every five seconds.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

The NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 watch features THE ARMOURY engraved on the 6 o’clock side of the dial. Additionally, the typeface and position of the engraving on the caseback has been altered. For this model, the brand is also offering leather straps in different color and materials.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

Like the NH TYPE 2C watch, the new model comes with a 37mm diameter case made of SUS 904L grade stainless steel, the alloy known for its superior hardness and corrosion–resistance.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

The hour, minutes and seconds hands of this watch are produced by cutting to give them a three-dimensional appearance. Due to this, the hands are almost three times thicker than those of a standard watch. The dials are almost three times thicker than those of ordinary watches.

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

Powering this timepiece is the manual-winding Cal.3020CS movement, which incorporates a newly developed click mechanism, different from the one in the base movement, the ETA Valjoux 7750, so that the wearer can enjoy the feel of winding the watch.

This movement is a modification of the Cal.3019SS presented in 2019 in order to create a medium three-hand system (with the seconds hand positioned in the center of the dial).

NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 2C-1 “Lettercutter”

The six Arabic indexes on the dial are all hand-engraved by skilled craftsmen. Synthetic lacquer is then poured over them to give them a unique finish.

The production of NH TYPE 2C-1 is limited to 10 pieces in 2022.

The NH TYPE 2A is a mechanical wristwatch developed, manufactured and sold by NH WATCH Co. Ltd., a Japanese watch brand founded by Naoya HIDA.

The NH TYPE 2A is a hand-wound wristwatch with the second hand located in the center of the dial. With a case diameter of 37 mm, this contemporary creation meticulously incorporates the design of vintage watches from the 1930s to the 1950s.

NAOYA HIDA &Co. NH TYPE 2A hand-wound watch made in japan

The NH TYPE 2A watch is equipped with a three-hand mechanical hand-wound movement with centre seconds hand. In 2019, for their debut timepiece (NH TYPE 1B), NAOYA HIDA &Co. created the Calibre 3019 SS, an in-house mechanical manual wound-movement developed from the legendary ETA Valjoux 7750 Swiss made chronograph movement.

NAOYA HIDA &Co. NH TYPE 2A hand-wound watch made in japan

The watchmakers NH WATCH Co. Ltd. have extensively modified the base ETA Valjoux 7750 caliber to develop an exceptional in-house movement. They have also incorporated an innovative click mechanism for efficiently converting the self-winding chronograph movement to a manual-winding movement (Calibre 3019 SS) with a classic three hands layout.

NAOYA HIDA &Co. NH TYPE 2A hand-wound watch made in japan

This newly created three-hands caliber features a small second dial at 9 o’ clock. For the new model (NH TYPE 1B) launched in 2020, the brand once again modified the Calibre 3019 SS to provision a centre second hand instead of small seconds.

NAOYA HIDA &Co. NH TYPE 2A hand-wound watch made in japan

Measuring a diameter of 37mm and thickness of 10.7mm, the watch case is made from SUS 904L stainless steel, known for its high corrosion resistance. The watch is fitted with a curved sapphire crystal glass with the non-reflective coating. The stainless steel case back of the watch maintains a simple layout with inscriptions of the model name and serial number.

The NH TYPE 2A watch boasts an elegant German silver featuring stainless steel hour and minute hands as well as a blued steel centre seconds hand. This three-dimensional dial maintains three distinct layers: The outer seconds track, the middle dial ring with hour-markers and the central dial engraved with the brand name.

NAOYA HIDA &Co. NH TYPE 2A hand-wound watch made in japan

All the three hands are placed on the dial centre. The four Arabic indexes (3, 6, 9 and 12) on the dial ring are all hand-engraved by skilled artisans. Following that, the synthetic Japanese lacquer (Cashew) is poured over the surface to produce a unique finish.

The brand inscriptions on the central dial and the bar indexes are engraved by a high-precision micro-fabrication machine. Like the Arabic indexes, the above dial elements are equally treated with the synthetic Japanese lacquer.
