Inspiration

Overview 

The 273° Saphir Fumé has a subtly toned crystal dial that is intriguingly beautiful to behold. Revealing the inner workings of the automatic movement with its patented large date function at 11 o' clock, as well as the elaborately decorated front side of the mechanism, the watch creates a subtle interplay between light and shadows. A power reserve indicator completes the dial.

The manufacture movement caliber ZW0103 is also visible at the sapphire glass caseback, with its intricately decorated German silver plates. The 273° Saphir Fumé offers highly precise time measurement, a 72-hour running time and a functional crown with multi-stage sealing system and dual O-rings to ensure waterproofness. On the dial-side, the lancine-shaped hands are coordinated precisely to the minute markers. The indexes at five-minute intervals have a classic arrow shape with beveled edges, and contrast beautifully with the smoked dial. 


Inspiration

When founders Maks and Peter were developing the 273°, the idea was to create a watch with a comfortable fit and a high degree of suitability for everyday use. Despite its diameter of 42.5 mm, the case retains a graceful and well-proportioned appearance, with short lugs, and the option of either a rubber or calfskin leather strap. With the addition of the transparent smoked crystal dial, the 273° Saphir Fumé provides a view of the caliber from the front, highlighting the fine sculptural details and interesting light effects offered by the components.
