CIGA Design U-Series Stainless Steel - world's first original mechanical watch with black hole design concept.

Designer
CIGA Design, joining hands with Paul Cohen, one of Australia's most-awarded industrial designers, launches the world's first watch with black hole design concept to enlighten people with the universe and the black hole.

Concept of time in the BLACK HOLE
As early as the end of the 18th century, British scientist John Michel proposed for the first time the existence of "black stars" with very strong gravity. In 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope released the first photo of black hole in human history. Mankind has never stopped exploring the universe.


This watch, designed in August 2019 as a tribute to people for their unrelenting scientific research efforts in the discovery of the black hole, incorporates the obscure principles of black hole in its unique design that highlights interstellar mechanics aesthetic.


100° Slope structure
Delivering the impression of matter being sucked into the black hole, dial poses a sense of black hole and technology.

0.5 mm engraving depth
With intricate 3D numbers engraved, the beveled quality case shapes a futuristic mechanical space on the wrist.

The watch glass acts as a symbol of the BLACK HOLE CENTER
It implements a concave design in sapphire crystal, mirroring a black hole swallowing everything.


Weightless suspension movement components
The movement and hands are held in the center of the watch via a transparent fixed structure, creating a mechanical world suspended in time and space.



VERMEILLE CROWN
Echoes the color of the first black hole composite photo in 2019. Renders a feeling of being on the scene to feel the charm of the black hole.


Seiko NH05 watch movement
Over 40 hours of energy storage and a frequency of 21,600 times/hour.
