Inspired by the iconic elliptical dashboard of the Mini Cooper, this timepiece has been translated directly from an element that is instantly recognisable amongst the diehard fans... The chassis, now unusable, is salvaged, cleaned and remade into, and as the dial of this very watch. The physical marks and rawness of the dial literally reflects the metal of the original car.
This sports wristwatch - an unexpected homage - indicates 12hr time; measures up to 1hr with its chronograph function (a sweeping hand is typical reserved for mechanical watches, although this mecha-quartz ; next to a 24hr gauge; and finished with a deep-cut window displaying the date.
