The dial on the Normalzeit watch is a throwback to the original clocks that were erected in the early 1900’s. With large, thick hour and minute hands, you can imagine how easy these clocks were to see from a distance. The design of the hands, hour makers, and even the “Nomalzeit” logo are exactly what you would have seen on the original clocks. There is no seconds hands because, well, the clock didn’t have it.  So why put it on the watch?  Protecting the dial on this watch is a scratch proof sapphire crystal. Powering this watch is a reliable Seiko NH35A movement.
