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 18-century regulator dial display which the seconds, minutes and hours indication are separated into sub-dials and combined with the modern minimal design.The base of the dial is decorated with matt-sandblasted finishing, giving it a dedicated texture effect. The indicators are printed in elegance Arabic numerals and tracks and displayed by the baton-shaped hands. To improve the design features and legibility of the time telling, we designed a disc with red halo mark which floats over the arcs to encircle the minutes.The main dial is used to indicate minutes and seconds. The 24 Hours and date are relegated to recessed sub-dials at 7 o’clock and 4 o’clock, respectively. The day is indicated by the retrograde dial design at 10 o’clock.
