For avid players of the Roulette game, Azimuth has launched the aptly named “Roulette” watch; inspired by the obvious; the roulette wheel and its solid rectangular table. The Roulette is produced in time for the opening of Singapore’s first and Asia’s grandest Casino in mind by end of 2009.
The winding crown takes the form of a dice and serves 2 purposes; to set the time and to activate the spinning ball. By depressing and releasing the dice at the same time, the player “starts the ball rolling” (or spinning in this case). The hand with the ball spins around the roulette dial and stops randomly but always landing in the “slot” at the base of any given number.
The 3-dimensional roulette dial gives the impression of a miniature roulette wheel encapsulated in a sapphire crystal.
Measuring 45mm x 34mm, the 316L stainless steel case is ergonomically designed to ensure a snug fit on the user’s wrist with its highly curved back case which also has the Azimuth signature “pothole” design showing the balance wheel spinning.
A “BEAT THE CASINO!” phrase can be seen marked on the back plate. The Azimuth Roulette is made in limited edition of 500 pieces in stainless steel and comes fitted with a high grade leather strap with deployment buckle.
