  • Catalogue Essay

    - Naoya Hida, one of Japan's prominent independent watchmakers, established his own brand in 2018. His design philosophy focuses on meticulous attention to detail and transforming seemingly simple elements into works of artistic excellence.

    - One notable example is the Type 2B, crafted from corrosion-resistant 904L steel. The dial, a favorite among watch enthusiasts, embodies a harmonious blend of vintage charm and Japanese craftsmanship. Made from micro bead-blasted and satin-finished German silver, the dial features a stepped layout with three distinct layers. The outer periphery showcases a minute track, while the middle part houses hour markers. At the center, polished baton hands and a blue steel seconds hand add an elegant touch.

    - Upon closer inspection, the true craftsmanship becomes evident in the meticulously hand-carved indexes, coated with a captivating glossy sheen achieved through the careful application of 'Cashew' synthetic lacquer.

    - For the movement, the Type 2B is equipped with a highly modified Valjoux cal. 7750 which is transformed into the manual-winding cal. 3020CS. Significant modifications have been made to the base caliber, including the removal of the self-winding rotor, chronograph components, and sub-seconds. Additionally, a new winding click spring has been introduced to recreate the tactile winding experience reminiscent of vintage timepieces.

    - Limited to a production of just 10 pieces, this watch represents a timeless and flawless example of Japanese independent watchmaking. It is certain to become an extremely sought-after collectible in the years to come.
