Glycine KMU 48 Limited O’6 (Ref. 3848)

Introduced in 2006, the KMU 48 Limited O’6 is no less rich in contrasts, not only in regard to its colours – black and orange – but also its materials. Most of the dial is made of carbon fibre which gives it structure and shine, depending on how the light falls. Positioned at six o’clock, the seconds are displayed on an area of orange-coloured luminous material.

A successor of the KMU 48 Big Second, the KMU 48 Limited O’6 was produced in a limited series of 250 pieces. The watch is equipped with a finely finished Unitas 6498 movement and has a diameter of 48 millimetres –as its name suggests. It is waterproof up to 100 metres, comes with a leather strap and priced around 1400 CHF in 2006.
