Not every watch face needs to look exactly the same — hour, minute, and second hand rotating around a central axis, pointing to clear indices around the periphery — and the guys who brought us the Urwerk UR-105M Watch know that well. Instead of the traditional means of displaying time, this watch features three oscillating satellites that display a numeral indicating the hour, and passing by a minutes indicator at the base. All other features have been moved away from the face, including a power reserve, maintenance indicator, and run timer. Built from a combination of titanium and steel, the watch features sapphire crystals, and is available in brushed steel or black-colored titanium.
Elegant in its simplicity, the Nomos Metro Watch has an understated beauty that makes it perfectly at home whether you wear it to the office or out for the night. With its delicate black-oxidized steel hands, minimalist indices, and open, galvanized white-silver plated face, this watch does away with clutter while maintaining all the most important elements. Its stainless steel case features a sapphire crystal on the front and back, letting you view its gorgeous manual-winding movement. It also sports a black shell cordovan strap, water resistance down to three atmospheres, and a gauge that lets you monitor its power reserve.
