It’s fascinating how the "Noon" watch dial changes from minute to minute. An ingenious design never seen before. And a mystery that will amaze others and is not easily solved. Because at first all you see is a dial which changes colour but after a few days you will be able to tell the time at a glance. What’s clever is you won’t just tell time by looking at the printed hands but also by the arrangement of the coloured areas. Down to the second, as a second hand is also included.Ingenious design in 3 levels.
A half-moon rotates for both the hour and minute hand over a charcoal-coloured disc. The hour hand “pushes” a wine red half-moon ahead of it. On the third and top level, a semi-transparent half-moon moves with the minute hand across both of the coloured areas. The dial is visually divided into 4 sections and continually changes with the passage of time. Clever quick-change mechanism for both of the supplied watch straps.
The elegant 20mm (3⁄4") Milanese watch strap and the entire casing have a titanium ion plating to make it durable. This also tones down the bright stainless steel surface and makes the dial stand out even more. For more formal attire, simply clip on the 20mm (3⁄4") wide black strap (supplied) which is made of Italian calfskin.
