BREIL timeSLOT : Concept Overview
The BREIL timeSLOT wristwatch features analog annular rings in place of the traditional dial and hands. Every hour, at a different time, the slots in the hour, minute and seconds rings align. This alignment is conceptually linked to astronomical syzygy and symbolic of universal unity.
The watch case is precision machined in matte finished bead blasted 316L surgical stainless steel. The sapphire crystal face is finished on the interior with an anti-reflective coating.
Overall size is 44mm diameter x 15mm thickness. the case is water resistant to 10 atm. (100 meters).
A molded silicone rubber wrist strap, with a precision machined buckle and retainer, is embossed with the Breil QR coded graphics to further express the idea of the present time in the digital age.
The watch is proposed with an automatic mechanical movement with 42hr power reserve, with an exhibition back in scratch-resistant K1 hardened mineral crystal.
