As homage to the Silk Road, a path of trade and technology that passed from East to West, breaking down boundaries and bringing people together, SEVENFRIDAY integrates design elements of China’s culture, past, present and future. The P2B/07 “Silk Road”, is limited to 450 pieces and instead of a world map on the caseback, it depicts the route through Asia into Europe the Silk Road took. The watch is available in China and in selected SEVENFRIDAY Spaces from November 2018.
The watch features a 47.6mm (W) x 47mm (H) Stainless steel case with 3atm water resistance. The watch houses a Miyota 8257 movement with 40H power reserve.
The base dial is a stamped bronze colour with “Silk Road” detailed upon it at the 3 o’clock point. Sub dials in vintage bronze with black Chinese characters at 5 o’clock and 9 o’clock represent seconds and 24h respectively.
The minute hand in black squares with red and white arrow sweeps from the centre point, as does the hour hand also picked out in red and white. The animation ring in stainless steel features a gunmetal PVD finish.
The NFC chip embedded behind the Silk Road map on the polished gold coloured stainless steel caseback allows authenticity verification via the SEVENFRIDAY App, NFC scanning station and authorized retailers. The watch comes with a Red calf leather strap. Retail price is 1350 USD/CHF (RRP ex. taxes).
