Information from Surf blue on the Rolex Forum

I realize it is Japanese and not Chinese, but is this better or on par with Celadon? What do you guys know about the quality?
This Kurono is hot, perfect size too.
This could be the Japanese Nomos.
Maybe I should wait about six months and see if the used prices still stay high.

I found some info.

Hajime Asaoka's makes watches in his workshop, they have a $50,000 price for his handmade watches. Apparently he has started Kurono Tokyo watches with prices of $2,000.00-5,000.00. This is much more my speed.

I just pulled the trigger. Kind of scary because you guys know how cheap I am. My Grand Seiko is my only watch that cost more then this. The guy tried it on, didn’t like it so he sold it. The strap has no sign of wear so it’s like new. I might of found one cheaper, but more used. I’m happy and think the price was fair, so now I wait for the mail.

Usually I hem and haw over a watch for a few days to even months reading everything I can about it, but this was a couple of hours decision for me. Once I saw Hajime Asaoka was involved and saw they were selling for more used than new, I jumped. I didn’t want the price to keep going up while I decided to make up my mind.
