Expressing the beauty of each individual second

Every second marked by this watch is like a line of poetry. In each second, you can see time in all its profundity: the fleeting and the eternal; the rigour that forbids even a second’s deviation; a clear borderline between past, present and future; and quality like a fine polished crystal.

The expression of this watch is one of extreme simplicity. This simplicity is a reflection of the mechanism’s commitment to marking the individual seconds in all their perfect natural purity.

SECOND HAND AND MINUTE TRACKS

Visually savour the
individual seconds

We wanted the front view of this watch to express the precise moment when the second hand covers the minute tracks in perfect alignment. The unusually long second hand, the minute tracks printed with elevated levels of precision, and the minimised gear backlash were all designed with that goal in mind. The perfect alignment of the second hand and the minute tracks is the physical expression of our confidence in the ultraprecision of the watch. We wanted people to “feel” each individual second with their eyes. This supremely elegant and simple design was the result.

BRASS SECOND HAND

A beautiful second hand

The second hand is the symbol of this watch. It is designed to be as long as structural tolerance permits and is made of brass, a material with a unique shine. This watch will tell you the time—and it will also make you forget all about time. You won’t be able to tear your eyes away from the exquisite second hand.

The dial is designed to evoke blue goldstone, a manmade stone that supposedly engenders positive encounters between people. The brilliant blue dotted with glinting specks of powdered glass is thrillingly vivid.

Super Titanium™ (Duratect α)

The combination of a lustrous black dial, a titanium case and a metal band inspired by a crystal motif give this limited-edition model a simultaneous sense of solidity and precision. The watch absorbs light via an array of tiny apertures in the dial, enabling it to keep marking the individual seconds with extreme accuracy.

Super Titanium™ (Duratect α)

A mother-of-pearl dial evokes the limitless scope of time in the natural world. The contrast between the mother of pearl pattern formed over many years and the second hand marking each precise second is a visual metaphor for the way time passes into eternity, moment by moment. It also makes this watch uniquely beautiful.
