The Mirco TYPE-02 SR -

Curious to relate, the HQ if Mirco is located in what I used to think of as the "big city" when I was living in Kasukabe, Japan.  A contact to Mirco will (I have to assume, as my emails have gone unanswered) pass through a connection attached to an address in what was once Omiya, now a compartment of what is now known as Saitama-Shi (that's Saitama City to you).  At any rate, they make a pretty spiffy chronograph -

Now it is not exactly bargain priced at 275,000 Yen, and in all honesty I have yet to see one in person, but it is intriguing.  My understanding is that they made an appearance at BaselWorld this past March, and with luck they will be back in 2020 so the rest of us can get a closer look.
