  • Watch Designed and Made for Mother Earth, by Azimuth

    Back In Time watches


    HERE ARE a couple of bright pieces of jewellery for men to strap on, while at the same time showing support for Mother Earth. That’s an argument that will likely win the spouse and kids over!

    Azimuth introduces its limited-edition series of Back In Time watches championing environmental awareness. Earth Vision — Save The 1 comes in Rainforest Green and Ocean Blue encased in the age-old material, bronze. Only 50 pieces of each colour are available.

    The back-in-time movement pays homage to Earth, since both the watch and Earth move counterclockwise.



    The hour numerals are depicted in reverse order, while the hour and minute hands make their way in this backward journey. Maybe you’re hoping for a simpler time where life was less complicated, but it takes more watchmaking smarts to mount an additional gear train atop the automatic movement of this Swiss-made watch.

    The 42? pieces have specially crafted dials that have ripple patterns inspired by nature, be it the lapping of waves or the rustling of leaves. The dials are hand sprayed to create this artistic effect before being lacquered.



    The Azimuth Back-In-Time Earth Vision — Save The 1 limited edition series of watches are water resistant to 3 ATM. They are priced at S$3,500 and available at Red Army Watches at #B3-03 ION Orchard. Description

    Championing greater environmental awareness, Azimuth is proud to introduce an expressive work of horological art- the new Back-In-Time (BIT) ‘Earth Vision – Save The 1’ Limited Edition, a collection that invites us to think about the world we live in.

    Looking deceptively normal, the hour numerals are depicted in reverse, while the hour and minute hands journey in anti-clockwise direction, portraying time as if it is moving backwards. This capricious technical trick is achieved via a module with additional gear trains mounted on top of the automatic movement.

    Radiating at the heart of the BIT ‘Earth Vision – Save The 1’ timepieces are the gorgeous dials that flaunt miniscule ripple patterns; inspired by the dynamic movements of nature, evoking the gentle waves of the ocean or the rustling of leaves in a breeze. Awash in gradated shades of blue for the ‘Ocean Blue’ model, and green for the ‘Rainforest’ variant, each dial is fastidiously constructed.

    The dials first undergo a highly precise machine-stamping process to create the guilloche wave-like pattern. After stamping, they are lavished with blue or green paint, hand-sprayed by master artisans to accord a gradated ‘fumé’ effect that is smooth and flawless. A painstaking process, each layer of colour must be dried before the artisans can apply the next coat to achieve the colour graduation effect. Last but not least, the coloured dials undergo a lacquering process, which involves the application of clear undercoats, a topcoat, and a finishing coat to ensure a shimmery gloss before the numerals and brand logo are printed.Info

        This one probably should have been under SWISS MADE WATCHES, but being in Singapore I put it here. (Please move if you like Steve) Scantor would be like a kid in a candy shop with these designs.

        Welcome to the wonderful world of Azimuth Watches, a brand synonymous with avant-garde complications watch designs.

        Company Overview
        Azimuth starts with a thought; a contemplation of our place on this planet. A mathematical term which defines the arc of a horizon from a reference point, Azimuth is a mode of measurement used by astrologers, navigators and military men to survey their bearings.But more importantly, Azimuth represents a cerebral pursuit - a reflection of time and space as determined by its Arabic etymology which translates to mean “route taken by a traveller”. It is through this convergence of science and philosophy that the Azimuth collection is conceived.

        Azimuth timepieces are strictly mechanical, truly avant-garde and most importantly- swiss made
