Set Your Alarm Clocks! A New Kurono Tokyo Model!

So if you had plans for this coming Friday, you might want to change them! Kurono Tokyo will be opening orders for the latest very limited edition, a GMT!

The Kurono Tokyo GMT 1 features, you guessed it - a GMT function. And while a GMT function is highly useful, I have to say that it is the overall look of the watch that strikes me. The dial is a wonderful interplay of different hues and shades. And the bezel is another mindful nod to the idea that different doesn't need to be visually jarring.

A closer look at the bezel reveals a very cool twist on the "Day/Night" bezel divide on the majority of GMT watches. The Pepsi, the Batman, the blah, blah, blah... Kurono Tokyo has a much cooler and elegant solution. One half of the engraved bezel is smooth. The other half has a pattern of 5 lines between 18 and 6 to articulate the evening hours. Like I said, this one's a bit special!

As with previous Kurono Tokyo offerings, the order window will be open for a limited time, one order per customer, and anyone suspected of hoarding (i.e. ordering multiple pieces to flip) will be rigorously rooted out, and their orders canceled - so play by the rules, please!
