Based in North of London, Isotope Watches announces their first model, a self-winding Swiss Made Jumping-Hour wristwatch in a limited edition of 99 pieces. This timepiece takes its design inspiration from various artistic, architectural and design fonts of Streamline Moderne philosophy, a late type of the Art Deco design emerged in 1930s.
