“B015 – NAVIGRAPH” series automatic GMT function stainless steel wristwatch with Blue skeletonized dial / MOP trims.
Inspired by a 2019 3D science fiction movie “The Wandering Earth” which was filmed based on a famous novel with the same name. The movie was about the Earth facing the destruction of the solar system, scientists came up with an idea of a journey making the Earth to leave its trajectory driven thrusters driving it into outer space. BEHRENS always has the courage to try & explore, with ambitious goals, and is committed to designing unique products, which coincide with the concept of the movie. In 2022, we are taking the opportunity to launch our all-new “NAVIGRAPH” GMT series. A new product concept based on using the elements appearing in the movie and transformed them into design elements for this new model series. From which the inspiration of the dial design was based on the thrusters appearing in the movie for driving the Earth and we took this concept and transformed it into the 4-rings on the skeletonized dial as functional displays. To pursue the spirit that the brand has been advocating in creation from the past, we have adopted a regulator display design layout for the “NAVIGRAPH” series. That is, on each of the 4-ring display on the dial, there will only be a single hand indicator. Such advantage of design is that while it can simplify the overall layout, it also improves the readability of each function by clearly dividing them and individually display them on each of the 4 sub-dials, which indeed is practical and attractive. And to further improve the visibility of the displays at night, the dial has been added with luminous at certain areas allowing the dial to glow in the dark, making the dial and its display functions readable and exploratory in balancing the visual effect of the dial.
