IO DOUBLE ORBITALE
It has been said over and over, « Independents » must come with original or innovative products. Even if the sentence is subject to debates as for what’s an Independent brand ? or Big players shouldn’t ?, i understand and am agree with the idea behind it
HYSEK is a brand that offers original Time interpretations and being in a period where risks are not taken, this 2019 novelty feels like a breath of fresh air! Now, let’s break down the dial.
At 12 o’clock is a Jumping Hours indication. Each hour, a disc will instantly jump from one number to the next one making the information as clear as day.
The Minutes and Seconds are travelling in orbit! meaning that the central zone (grey components where the minutes are engraved) is motionless. Doing a full turn in 60 minutes, the outer disc indicates the minutes (long purple pointer) and the seconds thanks to a small purple triangle hand. The seconds are actually embedded within the minutes module and we can only applaud the brilliant engineering.
The open back let you appreciate its fantastic architecture! You can see the wheels, regulating organ and micro-rotor. The position of the jewels and apertures surrounding them is pretty pleasant visually.
To conclude, the overall finishing is quite fair and i can’t wait to discover what they have in the pipeline.
