Introducing – Dietrich O.Time now in colored forged carbon (and even a luminescent carbon one…)
In watchmaking, who thinks innovative materials usually says high price. That’s somehow a rule. Look at recent watches with sapphire crystal cases. Most of them are over half a million CHF – even the cheapest one isn’t cheap… Same goes for complex ceramics, or watches associating different kind of solid, ultra-light or ultra-resistant materials. Carbon fibre isn’t always ultra-high-end, however few are the watches with such material priced under 10k. Well, Dietrich watches, with their usual value for money rule, will bring you forged carbon cases, some with colored incrustations and even luminous cases (yes, for real) together with a mechanical movement for a price you don’t expect. Here are the Dietrich O.Time now in colored forged carbon.
The concept of Dietrich watches: having a fun, highly designed watch, with mechanical movement, built with Swiss quality standards and for a reasonable price. As we’ve seen previously, Emmanuel Dietrich succeeded. The first collection of Dietrich 1969, featured some recognizable design clues, mainly because of the movement inside the case: a Myota 82-S-7 movement, which is the exact same movement as used in the SevenFriday watches. However, what makes the Dietrich O.Time watches different is the combination of the mechanical and horological elements (the visible balance wheel, the partially visible main-plate, the 4 layers of the dial, the star-shaped second wheel, the 24h second time zone indicator…) with a properly organic, almost vegetal design. Not surprising that the watches are named O.Time, for Organic Time.
