ACTIVE was started in 2018 Jan, a group of watch-addicts with the passion and constancy of the traditional watch craftsmanship. They believe that the most timeless and desirable timepiece must be the traditional one. They would like to awaken people’s mind about the core function of a watch, thus create their brands.
Active integrate the elements of art, technology and creativity. Their watch is a perfect union of modern and vintage, of traditional craftsmanship and complexity, and inspired by the industrial design.The watch finds inspiration in the urban environment, modern aesthetics and industrial elements. Their designer curates this authentic collection by translating the industrial heritage into urban design with traditional craftsmanship and inexhaustible creativity.Active introduces the first “Ingegnere Collection” to all watch-addicts! Every detail in our modern vintage watch is a nod to the features of industrial essence. Featuring a prefect finishing watch case and bezel, sapphire crystal mirror and the core design of the seven layers dial, they also adopt a reputable Japanese automatic movement providing an accurate and reliable time-keeping functionality to our watch collection.
It is a self-winding mechanical movement, with a hacking function and bi-directional winding system, an accuracy of -20 to +40 seconds a day, power reserve of 40 hours and mechanisms gleam with 24 jewels as it vibrates at 21,600 beats per hour. Seiko NH35A is providing accurate and reliable time-keeping functionality to the “Ingegnere collection”.
Design: Dial and hands
To differentiate the design from huge fashion watches that are going out in same, the dial design finds inspiration from the industrial essence of gear chain, machine, rotor, gauge, etc. The core design of the watch dial is fantastically well constructed with 7 layers and 11 applied parts and the base of the dial is decorated with guilloche pattern, giving it a grained texture effect. Hours and minutes are indicated by the printed marks and indexes on the stratified dial’s layer.The hands are skeletonized and painted with Super-LumiNova, large and legible enough for ease of time reading in the dark. The date window sits neatly at 5 o’clock.
Dial variations include (1) All Silver, (2) Black and Silver, (3) All Black for the bracelet version; (1) All Silver, (2) All Black for the strap version.
Design: Case and Mirror
In the Active “Ingegnere collection” collection spot a prefect satin brushed surface finishing circular case and accentuated with a sharpened bezel. The case is enclosed by a flat sapphire crystal that is known for its excellent scratch-resistant on the front and a screw-down transparent caseback from the rear, allowing you to enjoy every movement of the laser brand marked movement rotor and balance wheel motion.Viewed from the side, the sharped bezel ring joins the case back flawlessly through a smooth sloped surface. The streamlined case is more than just an elegant design feature – it also allows for a slimmer profile. The metal parts are made from 316L stainless steel, which translates to greater corrosion resistance and durability in high temperatures.
