    The Kurono Calendrier 'Type I'

    The Kurono Calendrier 'Type I' is available to pre-order right now. Anyone else ordering one? I like the look of it and have had an order confirmed in the last minute or two.

    That's rather nice, isn't it?

    I'm glad they've done something different this time.

    I have a Bullseye branded "Chrono Tokyo" and I love it but even I was getting a bit jaded with the brand.

    Really like the coin edged bezel on this one.

    Resonances of the Patek 6119 but with added complications and a more modest price tag! Great size too. Looking forward to seeing it in the autumn.

    I hate not to be enthusiastic

    I had a Toki last year, and was enthusiastic right up to the point I had it in my hands. I felt it was a 500 watch at triple the money, and I flipped it pretty sharpish.

    This looks nice enough, but an industrially finished Miyota movement for an extra month subdial? At 1800 with VAT, there is quite a lot of compelling competition.

    Nice enough, but I think there is quite a hype / FOMO dimension.

    Sorry to be less than gushing

    It's great to hear all opinions! I absolutely take your points on board. However, I think that the limited run and the general 'appreciation' of the brand make this a low risk opportunity. I'll post some pictures when the watch arrives. I'm particularly curious about the dial colour which I found difficult to fully get a handle on from the press pictures. I'm hoping that it is a dark green olive colour. We'll see!

    While these watches are not for me, I really like the direction they've taken - from an outsider's POV these have an unabashedly Japanese look and feel to them, and it would be kind of stupid not to use a Japanese movement - indeed, only vain snobbery would preclude it.
    They're carving a niche for distinctive products that the big Japanese names lack the courage to produce much of.
    In a world where certain heavily-marketed mass-produced SS watches have spiralled up to 10K+++ these look good VFM if you appreciate something thoughtful, well-executed and genuinely rare.
    More power to them.
