It gives the watch a little bit of the feel of a retrograde minute hand.  There is a separate single hand dual time zone indicator off on the left, and a power reserve indicator on the right.  The watch itself is driven by a Chinese, 24 jewel ST1201 skeleton automatic with orbiting mainspring, and the crown is set on the left side of the watch.

The watch comes in 8 versions (from what I can tell at the moment), an all stainless (on either a black or tan strap), a stainless case with black dial, an all black, a black watch on a tan strap, and gunmetal, rose gold, or yellow gold plated.  Pricing is set at $600 for the stainless and $650 for the plated watches.

  • Price:  $600 – $650
  • Who we think it might be for: Those that want people to stare at our wrists.
  • Would I buy or recommend it just on the photos?:  It is a bold, different statement, and if you like that from your watch, this may just be the watch for you.
  • If I could make one design suggestion, it would be: I don’t think the power reserve adds anything here.
  • What spoke to me the most about this watch:  It will start conversations.

  1. I would replace the power reserve with a date window instead. A Chinese movement, mineral glass instead of sapphire, and a $650 price tag. It’s hard to swallow.

  2. I understand the conversation starter side, but I don’t personally enjoy the watch enough to buy it for that alone. The square look just isnt pleasing to my eye. Nice write up tho!
