Hands-On with the Hajime Asaoka Chronograph

The article is no longer available.

Hajime Asaoka’s reproduction of a screenshot and quotation from a now-deleted article appears to be an endorsement – that is not the case. I repeatedly asked the Hajime Asaoka company to remove any content related to SJX from its website, but no response was forthcoming even after multiple attempts over several weeks.

Based on my knowledge of a significant number of clients not receiving watches according to schedule, as well as a lack of communication or refunds after non-delivery, I do not endorse Hajime Asaoka-branded watches in any way. I have no comment on any of the other brands, including Kurono Tokyo or Chrono Tokyo, which he designs watches for.

Sincerely,

Jiaxian SU
Founder, SJX Watches
