Hanamokko Monkiri Asanohamon (Watch with hemp leaf patterned band)

The pattern of the dial face emerges above the minute Japanese timepiece movement, and the underlying silver foil catches the light from various angles. White pigment made from crushed seashells is infused in Japanese paper, then the shape of a hemp leaf, which has been said to dispel evil spirits since ancient times, is cut out and placed on a background made of silver foil and thin Japanese paper. The indexes marking the time are made of gold foil. The bands are easily interchangeable. Wear a chic leather band for a modern watch. The watch can be enjoyed in a number of ways according to the day’s mood and fashion. It can be appreciated for the element of surprise and sense of beauty of Japan.
