The Dial

The Dial

 .

Our fascinating fully textured 3D dials are based on a special concept. 

If you didn’t get it yet, SPUTNIK means Satellite in Russian.
The multidimensional texture correspond to the bolted metal plates of a satellite’s body.  The lines are engraved (LOWER than dial level) and the dots are brass embossed (HIGHER than dial level). It is a very complex manufacturing process that allows us to create a real texture on 3 levels. We could have gone the easy way printing the pattern like most do, but this watch is about pushing the attention to details in affordable watches to a level never reached before. There is no shortcuts.

The hands and the indexes are equipped with three layers of Swiss Made Superluminova C3 for visibility in the dark.
You will never catch all the details at first glance. The texture's « levels » already form a multidimensional structure, then we have then applied indexes, a sloped reflector, and it continues on the bezel (see « bezel » section).
Our dials are satin finished with a delicate vertical brushing. The Anthracite and White-Silver are very shiny and somewhat comparable to a sun ray effect. 
The result is a true eye candy that catches light in a beautiful way.
