DAVOSA Newton Speedometer Automatic

The Newton Speedometer Automatic watch by DAVOSA takes inspiration from the automobiles of the 1950s and 1960s.

Its dial is designed after the cockpit of a legendary sports car. On the lowest level, the hour hand has been replaced by a rotating disc that shows the hour in a window set in the upper third of the next dial level by means of a sleek red arrow. An index scale shows the minutes, which the only conventional watch hand circles from the centre with great aplomb.

The outer frame is formed by a third level which, in place of conventional hour markers, repeats the minute scale in increments of five in a classic, modest font.

At the centre, a permanent seconds display rotates discreetly in the form of a matt silver disc accented with a red line.

This fine composition is available in neutral black with white Super-LumiNova BGW09 or in bicolour grey-black with natural Super-LumiNova, which develops a yellowish green shimmer in daylight. In poor light, the luminous material lets you read the hours and minutes in a pale blue or pale green.

The DAVOSA Newton Speedometer Automatic is powered by a Swiss DAV 3032 (based on Sellita SW 240 calibre) automatic movement, whose attractive skeletonised rotor with its gold-backed DAVOSA star can be glimpsed through the glass back.

The back is individually screwed in four places, and is part of the three-piece stainless steel (316L) case, which is manufactured according to cutting-edge methods.

Matt and polished surfaces alternate, the bezel takes up the curvature of the transparent, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, while the conical crown is knurled for a good grip and bears the DAVOSA star at its centre. The timepiece withstands an atmospheric pressure of 5 atm.

The Newton Speedometer’s handmade strap with its pin buckle employs an Italian roughened leather with a soft feel yet great robustness. It is combined with a lining of black, full-grain nubuck with a fine perforated pattern, ensuring exceptional comfort on the wrist.
