Asaoka Kurono Tokyo Bunkyo Chronograph 2
The next announcement after the cancellation of the Chrono Tokyo brand was the global Chronograph 2 model. The design was teased with an image on the Kurono Tokyo Facebook page on January 3, along with the announcement that all future models would use the Kurono Tokyo brand. But it wasn’t until February 10, 2021 that the Chronograph 2 was officially announced.
The Chronograph 2 features a new dial design with a brown center and orange accents, somewhat reminiscent of the “Bullseye” Field Gray model. All other elements of the watch are similar to the previous Chronograph 1, including the special hands, the case, and the strap.
The Kurono Tokyo Chronograph 2 was released for public sale on February 20, 2021 in two batches: Public international sales began at 11:30 PM JST, while domestic sales started at 12:00 PM. The model sold out in under 3.5 minutes despite the large 500 piece production run. 20% of the stock (100 pieces) were reserved for the domestic market and for Kurono Contributors.
