AZIMUTH Crazy Rider Brown PVD
A chain transmission design
The first thing that strikes you about the watch is its unusual case. Constructed to resemble a motorcycle engine, the case’s asymmetrical, infinity symbol-shaped profile sets the tone for the rest of the timepiece. Fitted with a porthole-style bezel with exposed screws, Crazy Rider invites you to peer into its inner workings, akin to looking deep at the cross-section of an engine. A miniature chain circles the center of the dial, aided by open-worked wheels at both ends, this time evoking the look of a motorcycle’s sprocket brake drive system. This ingenious chain transmission design, in fact, drives the hour and minute display. The shorter hour hand traverses along the entire dial, indicating time along a true 24-hour scale. Meantime, the minute hand rotates from a fixed position at right end of the wheel.The Crazy Rider is always ready to hit the open road, fearless and free. Paired with leather strap featuring contrast stitching that enhances the watch’s sportiness, the SP-1 Crazy Rider is available in small series each in black PVD or brown PVD coated mid-case.
