    I recently reviewed the Chrono Tokyo Bullseye, and went into some detail regarding master watchmaker Hajime Asaoka, the Kurono Tokyo brand, it's JDM label "Chrono Tokyo", and some of the drama that exists around these parts. I'm not going to re-introduce Hajime Asaoka or the Kurono Tokyo brand...

    I bought this watch about 2-3 weeks ago, and jumped through quite a few hoops to get it. This is Kurono Tokyo's JDM-only label called "Chrono Tokyo", which they recently announced would cease to exist as of 2021. This particular watch, the "Bullseye", did not make it's way to the international...

    I fell in love with Hajime Asaoka's work after watching a 10 minute interview with him at his workshop, and developed an admiration for his way of approaching watch design. I've included a link to this in the description. I couldn't afford the $50,000 price tag of his handmade watches, so I...

    I fell in love with Hajime Asaoka's work after an interview with him at his studio, and developed an admiration for his way of approaching watch design.

    Produced in October 1968 this is a beautiful example of the 4520-8000. The 45GS series was the second and final series to be manufactured by the Daini Seikosha company. From its release in 1968 it was mmanufactured until around 1973. The 8000 case is a solid structure and has typical “Grammar of...

    One of the first releases by Hajime Asaoka's "Chrono Tokyo" company. This was limited to 100 pieces and sold out quickly. This was purchased in May 2019 and has been kept in its box, never worn. Retailing for just under $2000, demand is high and sellers usually ask for double or triple that. I'm...
