A minimalist palette combined with striking cerulean sky-blue detailing of the Arabic numerals and inner minute ring project intelligence. Made through the wonderful process of of pad printing, using engraved clichés, an age-old technique formerly invented by and for the watchmakers, they look irresistible combined with the satin finish two-piece case.
