The Kurono Calendrier 'Type 1' is a watch designed by renowned Japanese watchmaker Hajime Asaoka, who was inspired by a casual conversation over drinks with a watch collector: "If you had to live on an isolated island, what would you take with you?" His book-loving friend said a novel by Haruki Murakami. Mr. Asaoka answered: "A watch," and he began to think about the functions that such a watch would need.

"Time is the most basic determinant for modern life, and the full calendar is the embodiment of this importance. I believe that wearing a watch in our daily lives will bring us closer to the idea of valuing time."
