"Saku" means the "new moon" and "Bou" means the "full
moon", so this word "SAKUBOU" means both new and full moon. For Japanese people, the moon has been the natural tool to give light during the night, the calendar to tell the tide, and the
art in the sky to look at and admire. Now there are so many artificial lights all around and we no longer see the true darkness, therefore we no longer look at the moon with the same
admiration as we did in the past. SAKUBOU was created to admire the moon again on your wrist.
SAKUBOU is also the watch you would enjoy the change of itself
over time. SAKUBOU will be telling you the time and at the same time it will "age" together with you. This is totally a different paradigm in the sense of value - today's overwhelming
sense of value dictates that "new in the box" is the top condition and once opened and worn it will start the clock to deteriorate. SAKUBOU will let you feel the art and beauty in the
"aging" process, which is not the deterioration but the change caused by the time passing, just like us.
Thank you very much.
