A high-performance mechanical watch, instilled with Japanese spirit and craftsmanship.
Japanese watchmaking techniques are being gradually lost.
Manufacturing locations are being shifted to cheaper locations overseas, and there are now hardly any cases where the inscription “Made in Japan” can be seen on affordably priced mechanical watches being sold in Japan; with only a portion of highly-priced mechanical timepieces now being produced domestically.
Japanese made mechanical watches. But today, the Japanese people who we would really like to lovingly wear them are not buying them. Is this really acceptable for the Japanese watch industry? As the market is lost, it also becomes increasingly difficult to pass on Japanese watchmaking techniques.
Knot’s flagship model, the AT38, was born out of that sense of crisis for the industry, and out of our desire to communicate the charm and appeal of mechanical watches two users who have abandoned them.
With its Japanese-manufactured high-precision, high beat movement; its case, born out of the advanced metal processing techniques adopted by the country’s finest mechanical watches; and its clock face, manufactured in Japan, in an age where almost all domestic dial production has ceased…Knot has accumulated all of the Japanese watchmaking techniques that are being gradually lost into a high precision mechanical watch, and offering it at an honest price. The AT38 is a crystallization of the passion of Japanese watchmakers; an authentic, affordably-priced, Japanese-made mechanical watch that Japan can be proud of.
