I always love gem stone from I was 6 years old. In Japan, there is culture which calls 「お年玉🧧」“Otoshidama”. Parents and grandparents give few bucks like €10-€50 for their kids when new years family gatherings. And I still remember that I got €30 in total and spend all to same this Malachite & Labradorite when I was 6 or 7 years old.
And those gem stones are kind of true vintage or antique. Spent countless years to became like this. That’s so cool isn’t it?
Especially this stone “Malachite” was used as cosmetic or paint in Egypt 3,000 B.C. Over 5,000 years ago! And also been used as paint to famous Japanese paintings called 「浮世絵」 “Ukiyoe” in 「江戸時代」 “Edo Period” Called 「緑青（ろくしょう）」 “Rokushō” as color.
And this stone “Malachite” is called “the stone for protection”. When it’s cracked, that means this stone protected you and finished the role.
Anyway I did vintage effects on this dial and hands to give my original taste on it. I don’t want to make same as every other watch maker does so. It’s really beautiful in person.
Please check availability before purchasing. I can show you pictures of the dial I have as stock. OR you can just place order as "Trust you Katabami"
Don’t miss it if you like it.
【 About product 】
The 36mm is named after one of the iconic vintage watch " 1016 Explorer 1 " I think the most elegant and the best size watch in the history. That’s why I wanted to make this perfect and finally i can release this after few years of planning.
My camera technique isn’t enough sadly... So cannot tell how well balanced & shaped is this. But you have my guarantee that it’s way better in person.

My experience with Katabami watches was purely unexpected. I am truly still in shock as to how amazing the pieces katabami produces, each within its very unique appearance. Inspired by vintage Rolex, however not derived by or limited to traditional homage pieces… Katabami’s uniqueness will always stand out in my eyes as a watch collector. Stone pieces such as the “malachite” are considered art in my eyes, and I feel grateful to have created such a strong connection with katabami watches (both personally and professionally) that a consideration of a “1 off” piece unique was truly the best and most valuable gift I could’ve gotten.
From the moment I first saw the dial I was in complete awe and had no words to describe such a piece. The light plays at its angles and the Garnet stone used in place as the dial holds a sentimental value for me (as it is correlated with my father).
I’ve been fortunate enough to experience the different levels of watch collecting, however I have not felt such joy and happiness with any other piece I’ve collected. Knowing that there is only 1 of what I wear on my wrist is truly a feeling that holds a special place in my heart and watch collecting experience.
So thank you🙏🏼
