Initially, I perused the single-hand collection , and the color combo on the No. 02 watch grabbed my attention.  The yellowed dial just gives it a slightly vintage feel, and somehow that seems to work nicely with the single hand presentation.

 

Specs:

  • Movement:  Unitas 6497-1 (hand-wound)
  • Case:  43 mm steel with exhibition caseback
  • WR:  5 bar
  • Power reserve:  48 hours
  • Sapphire crystal

 

If you’d prefer something in an automatic flavor, the watch that really caught my eye is the Neo 1Z.  Again, you get the same, simple, single-hand presentation, with a five different color combinations to choose from (again, the vintagey sunburst ivory dial grabbed my attention).  What I really like about this one is how thin the bezel on the case is – it seems like, when on the wrist, you would see only the dial and the strap, and not particularly notice the bezel.

 

Specs:

  • Movement:  ETA 2824-2 Automatic
  • Case: 36 mm steel (solid back)
  • WR: 999 bar
  • Power reserve: 38 hours
  • Plexi-glass crystal

Overall, the single hand style is an interesting style variation I had not seen before, and I think would work quite well in daily usage.  I was not able to find much in terms of pricing, other than one online vendor, which had prices starting and $1600 and going up depending on the model in question.
