KURONO is proud to present its Anniversary Green ‘森:mori’ time-only watch in commemoration of our first anniversary in June 2020. 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.
The KURONO Anniversary Green ‘森:mori’ continues the iconic art-deco design introduced by celebrated watchmaker 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. ‘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.
The dial and caseback - signed Bunkyō Tokyo - refers to the special ward in Tokyo where Hajime's design studio is located, providing a subtle correlation to the genius and motivations of the watchmaker. The 森:mori will be the only time-only classic watch in our line-up this year.
