The OLD SMITH 90-002 raised 13 million yen for its original crowdfunding launch and has remained a best seller to this day. The OLD SMITH 90-002 is a classic field watch inspired by British military watches from the 1940s-1970s. The thick numerals and large hour/minute hands were designed with an emphasis on visibility and use orange-tinted luminescent paint. The dial has a matte finish to further emulate the dial designs of that time. The body of the watch (made of 316L Stainless Steel) is intentionally polished to add a bit of elegance to an otherwise rugged design.

 

For the movement of this watch, we use the Seiko NH35, an extremely popular workhorse movement used by microbrands around the world. The NH series of movements are mechanical movements with automatic winding. They have a ~40-hour power reserve. The NH series also has a "hacking" function, which stops the seconds hand when setting the time for more accurate time setting. For the OLD SMITH 90-002, we exclusively use movements made in Japan.

 

The brown version of the OLD SMITH 90-002 comes with the Super-LumiNova® by default. For this upgrade, we have changed the lume from our orange-tinted luminescent paint to an Old Radium colored Swiss Super-LumiNova®. This branded paint lasts about one-third longer in low light conditions. The dial is also changed to a grainy texture, and the lume indices are also changed to Old Radium colored Swiss Super-LumiNova® to match the hands.

 

The OLD SMITH 90-002 originally released with two nylon straps and we still offer this option on new models. These nylon straps are perfect for hot, sweaty summer months. We also offer the OLD SMITH 90-002 with Italian leather straps, or with a classic beads of rice link bracelet.

 

All of our OLD SMITH 90-002 watches are assembled by hand by our in-house trained watchmakers to ensure the highest quality possible.

 

KUOE was established in the historic Japanese city of Kyoto in 2020. This brand was founded with the vision of releasing modern watches that maintain classic designs. We want people from around the world to enjoy high-quality classic watches made in Japan.
