We opted for a His & Hers combination of the Estelle Mirror Gold Blush for Sin, with the Winston Regal for Ed. Just two examples of the perfect colour palettes used by Komono. Both pieces boast Japanese quartz movement, stainless steel backing, genuine leather wrist bands with brushed gold cases.

Komono have used subtle and simple design features to create the soft, femininity of the Estelle piece, whilst the Winston Regal embraces masculinity with its strong burgundy and navy colour scheme, contrasted with the slightly more pronounced numbers, lines and ‘KOMONO’ logo.

Each box matched the wrist band of its respective watch, with the lovely cracked, blush leather of Sin’s watch and the deep, smooth mahogany of Ed’s one. ‘Komono’ was modestly gold foiled into two of the corners of the boxes, with the logo subtly embossed along the top edge. Perfect.

We have been digital watch folk until now and the reason we avoided analogue designs was simple, the ticking. Analogue watches are, aesthetically, a lot more pleasing to wear and look at than digital ones, but we have always reverted back to our Casio Classics after that first night of unpeaceful sleep. As sad as it might sound, these small design features are sometimes the most important, hopefully you agree…? Naturally, one of our favourite features of our new Komono watches is the silence – no ticking, thank you, Komono! RIP Casio.
