Kurono Tokyo Grand Akane Limited Edition 200 pieces - Hajime Asaoka
This is the Akane <, the first model released in the Kurono Grand line which features handmade artisan dials. The Grand Akane features an urushi dial which incorporates a Hamon pattern typically seen on high level traditional Japanese metal works such as knives and swords. The dial is treated with "Niro" ( cooked color) a chemical treatment and traditional Japanese patination process that brings a certain unique colouration used for developing a range of colours on certain alloys and is finished with extra layers of urushi. The result of this artisan dial is a beautiful colour that changes from a unique bright orange to dark red in different lighting conditions.
