Nord-Zeitmaschine, the independent Swiss watch brand founded by Daniel Nebel, now introduces the latest model QUICKINDICATOR, an innovative timepiece equipped with World’s quickest minute hand.
Because of the relatively high weight, the entire construction of the hand movement assembly group must be balanced. The hand itself has its center of gravity on its rotating axis. The completely installed hand assembly group in turn has its center of gravity precisely above the center of the movement, regardless in which position the hand assembly group is positioned.
The complete hand movement assembly group is comprised of: Hand platform, hand, gear wheels, ball bearing, shaft, coupling and screws. The hand movement assembly group has a total weight of 0.74 grams, which compared to standard minute hands (e.g. minute hand model “CR-S Beta” 0.02 grams is 37 times heavier.
Length of the minute hand track of CR-S Beta model is 88mm and QUICKINDICATOR has 205mm minute hand track. Speed of QUICKINDICATOR minute hand is 205mm/h, which is faster than the minute hand of CR-S Beta model.
The limited edition QUICKINDICATOR collection is available in three variations: V1, V2 and V3.
