The U-Series timeline
Concept of time in the BLACK HOLE
As early as the end of the 18th century, British scientist John Michel proposed for the first time the existence of "black stars" with very strong gravity. In 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope released the first photo of black hole in human history. Mankind has never stopped exploring the universe.
This watch, designed in August 2019 as a tribute to people for their unrelenting scientific research efforts in the discovery of the black hole, incorporates the obscure principles of black hole in its unique design that highlights interstellar mechanics aesthetic.
100° Slope structure
Delivering the impression of matter being sucked into the black hole, dial poses a sense of black hole and technology.
0.5 mm engraving depth
With intricate 3D numbers engraved, the beveled quality case shapes a futuristic mechanical space on the wrist.
The watch glass acts as a symbol of the BLACK HOLE CENTER
It implements a concave design in sapphire crystal, mirroring a black hole swallowing everything.
Weightless suspension movement components
The movement and hands are held in the center of the watch via a transparent fixed structure, creating a mechanical world suspended in time and space.
Unique curve hollow hands
