As its name suggests, the CS-36 has a small second hand on a sub-dial below the center – a positioning that allows the second hand to be made even thinner. The simple, traditional design of its 36mm face makes it easy to match with any strap, and it is a popular choice when purchased as a watch pair.
The “Niji Iro” variant features mother-of-pearl on the small second hand sub-dial. Previously only available as a set combined with a strap, this limited edition is now available for purchase as a stand-alone watch body.
A sub-dial positioned at 6 o’clock displays the small seconds. In watchmaking history, small seconds have a longer history than central seconds, where all three hands are positioned in the center, giving the watch a classical appearance.
The minimalist design incorporates simple bar hour markers for high legibility. The Classic Series revives the charm of time-honored traditional antique watches for the modern age.
Simple bar markers or easy-to-read Arabic numerals: the choice is yours

However, it is the perfect size for both men and women with average wrist sizes, and it is the most popular Knot model for couples wishing to purchase a matching pair. The average adult wrist circumference is 16.8cm for men and 15.4cm for women*. Taller people tend to have larger wrist sizes, even if they are slimmer.
