Beautiful Japanese pattern design woven with the deep blue of lapis lazuli
This is an unique dial that combines lapis lazuli cut to form a Japanese pattern.
The combination of the regular pattern and the irregular and unique pattern of the stone makes each piece a uniquely beautiful design.
The lapis lazuli is delicately cut into pieces of only 5 mm in size.
Natural stones are easily cracked, making it difficult to apply such a fine pattern. Especially for the small parts with curves, it took a lot of trial and error to complete the process.
Durability is also guaranteed because the stones are fixed to a metal plate.
Since ancient times, star patterns have been used on various items as a symbol of dreams and hopes, such as to ward off evil, hope, and wishes.
The beautiful pattern of lapis lazuli and the regular interweaving of the pattern create a sparkling and fantastic appearance like stars in the night sky.
Combined with ebony, which evokes the image of the night sky, the design is chic and stylish.
A dial made through a number of processes
The dial is made of carefully selected beautiful natural stones.
We conducted many trials and tests with expert and skilled craftsmen on delicate natural stones, which are difficult to process.
We also deal with many stones with delicate internal structures that cannot be cut into thin pieces at ordinary stone mills.
Because natural stones are very fragile, NOZ selects high quality stones by actually checking each one.
Natural stones have a variety of expressions, and even some of the most beautifully patterned stones may have cracks(*) of natural origin.
In order to make the most of the beauty of these stones, NOZ products are made stronger and more durable by fixing the natural stone to a metal plate.
(*Cracks are naturally occurring cracks like streaks or breaks in the stone as it grows.)
NOZ’s wooden bands are made through a large number of manual and careful polishing processes.
Hardwood is especially difficult to work with, and a rough texture will set on it if the polishing process is not fully matured.
NOZ timepieces assure a beautiful finish that is smooth to the touch on every corner.
Experience a wonderful and addictive touch!

LOGO AS DIAL INDICES
This is wonderful innovetion!
It took five years from conceptualizing and another two years before launching to finalize this innovative design,
in which the meeting points of the letters, “N” and “Z”,
and the edge of the watch face serve as the index markers.

It is so light that even people who do not normally wear watches may inadvertently forget that they were wearing one.
