TOKYO PIGSKIN Japanese Traditional Watch Brand
A feature of this wrist watch is a simple, cool band made of pig skin. Pig skin is the only type of leather that can be supplied on a self-sufficient basis domestically in Japan, and this is produced by local pig skin tanners, of whom there are only approximately 10 in Japan. This is an excellent material in terms of difficulty of scratching its surface and its tensile strength. This is the pig skin used by the most famous European watch brands, and as this is a traditional Japanese material, it can be used with peace of mind. The way the material expresses a sense of added value with its superior craftsmanship is another point of attraction.
This is a mechanical wrist watch, with a transparent dial section and back cover. Nickel is a material that is prone to cause allergic reactions, but the “SUS821L1” used in this wrist watch has a low nickel composition, at only 4%. This is also tough and has high corrosion resistance compared to the “SUS304” material commonly used in wrist watches.
