2020 ANNIVERSARY MORI : 森
In celebration of Kurono's first anniversary in June 2020, emerges our first time-only watch - The Kurono Anniversary Green ‘森:mori’. Featuring a scintillating metallic green with a subtle radial sunburst pattern, specially hand picked by Hajime Asaoka, the dial displays vibrant shades of viridian and emerald, to pine and forest green. The Kurono Anniversary Green 森:Mori was nominated for GPHG 2020 in the “Challenge” category.
The dial is a specially picked color by Hajime Asaoka-sensei 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.
The Kurono Anniversary Green ‘森:Mori’ continues the iconic art-deco design introduced by celebrated watchmaker Hajime-sensei, 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. ‘森:Mori’ represents our effort to go back to a state of contemplation and restfulness - after recent launches of more complex watch designs - to our philosophy of humble beauty in simplicity.
