A home run where design is concerned, the MVT01/D01/42 model is the first watch released by 4N. Limited to just 16 pieces, the watch is characterized by a manufacturer movement, with a manual winding mechanism and a 12-hour digital display. The concept of the timepiece is based on a configuration of discs rotating in a discontinuous mode.
The watch features three discs (made of aluminum or titanium alloy) with different numbers engraved on them. The discs rotate to present the appropriate time in four digits. The mechanism uses a constant force jump system which guarantees minimum energy consumption, regardless of the winding tension. 4N offers the MVT01/D01/42 in 18K white gold and platinum versions; the dial is covered by a sapphire glass crystal, and the band will be offered in a range of materials.
