AZIMUTH Back in Time “Save The 1” Rainforest Limited Edition
Go Back in Time with "SAVE THE 1" Limited Edition
It looks normal. But looks can be deceiving.
Take a few seconds to look at the timepiece, and you will realise time is told backwards, and by backwards, we mean the hour and minute hand moves anti-clockwise.
An in-house modified ETA movement powers this unique Azimuth-designed movement with special gearings for anticlockwise motion.
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.
Azimuth is the first independent watchmaker founded in Singapore in 2003.
Now based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, Azimuth is constantly driven to create visually-arresting timepieces, which challenge the norm. To date, the creative minds behind Azimuth continue to craft watches that defy all reasoning, whilst paying homage to the highest qualities of traditional watchmaking.
