Opus 8 embodies the art of digital emotion. The case, clearly inspired by the 1970s, contains a manually-wound mechanical movement with a digital display of the hours and minutes visually, at least; the reality is much more complicated.
The novel numbers appear only on demand, when a slide on the right side of the watch is activated. Inspired by the board of pins that reproduces any shape pressed onto it a hand, face, etc. the mechanism links all of the functions together: the minute drives the hour, which in turn drives the AM/PM, so that everything can be displayed on demand.
Limited edition of 50 pieces.
