The concept of the W1 Watch is defined by 3 key elements; the overall case shape, the dial construction and the strap which appears to pass through the body.
The case is slightly domed on the front surface including the crystal, while the back is one large domed surface with no visible mechanical features keeping it closed.
The W1 watch can be purchased from the NTN online shop at shop.ntn.ie.
The traditional dial has been removed and instead it is constructed from the same part as the CNC machined aluminium body. This way there are no visible split lines where the body finishes and the dial begins. Without a dial the placement of the increments and logo changes, in this case they are silk screened onto the crystal itself. As a result they float over the hands.
