Introducing, our sleekest and stealthiest, Makina Andras_I - our first rectangular watch. Our first watch case in PVD coated surgical grade 316L stainless steel.
In a world where rectangular watches are almost always dress watches, we wanted ours to be bold and sporty; one that looks aesthetically pleasing from every angle.
Although it is only 44mm lug to lug, 33mm wide and 10,5mm thick, Andras_I packs a lot of wrist presence. The case is shapely and multi-faceted with both round and sharp edges. The edges are crisp and well defined without compromising comfort. The finish is a combination of both brushed and polished finishing.
It comes with a silicone rubber strap that is thick and muscular echoing Andras' chiseled case and dial designs. It also comes with a deployant clasp.
Finished with a subtle sand textured surface, the dial is made of brass, decorated with polished metallic indices. And as with most of our dials, Andras_I has a lot of depth and 3 dimensional geometry.
Powering the sword-like hands of Andras_I is a movement made in Switzerland that is used by many luxury Swiss watch brands - Sellita SW260-1 with small seconds at 6 and 26 jewels visible through an exhibition style caseback.
