The Apolar - For an Unorthodox Take on Time Reading
B020 – “APOLAR” Series Light Blue Dial model is one of our best seller. It’s a mechanical wristwatch we have developed base on the inspiration from the relationship between ‘Earth & Moon’. From which we have adopted a Swiss Made automatic movement (with special polished decorations) as a power source and then we installed a mechanical module which we have designed, developed, and constructed completely in-house to display a unique time display as well as a Moon track motion relative to the rotating Earth.
B020 APOLAR Functions:
The globe on the dial rotates once every 24 hours (day / night indicator) while the ring track drives the micro moon orbiting the globe once 28 days, a system which provides a function of demonstration of celestial motion of our home planet and the moon (27.32 Days).
Unlike the traditional way of time telling by using hands, we have adopted 2 discs and decentralized system locating at the bottom of the dial (left & right) to represent the time in ‘Hours’ & ‘Minutes’ respectively. Whereas there is a small seconds’ hand in the center.
The “Apolar” with its unique design (an official GPHG 2020 nominee) offers a new aspect of telling time and may set a milestone in the watch designing concept.
Independent watch brand, Behrens, is based in Hong Kong and specialises in watchmaking and watch modification. The brand is guided by German architect and designer, Peter Behrens' design philosophy, which is: “...to continue innovating is always been our life goal. All watches are fixed in form and have the design of all looking alike. If we need to break that pattern, we will have to break it from the root -- the movement.” Behrens has been modifying its own movements for many years. With every Behrens watch that you choose, you can look forward to having an art piece on your wrist that comes with unique complications.
