Epos 3424SK Mechanical Hand-wound Watch



Epos exalts time with the 3424SK. A time-only model, perhaps, but infused with a modern touch beginning with the skeleton sculpting of the Unitas movement. Hand-decorated, it comes in steel or steel with a black PVD coating. Two versions for an equally striking result. Then there is the dial, or rather its very clear absence with just a small seconds ring, off-centred at 9 o'clock, and a minute track around the inner bezel. Again, aficionados will appreciate the variations in colour. The quintessence of time in just 42 millimetres.
