NAOYA HIDA & Co. NH TYPE 1D

NAOYA HIDA & Co. has launched NH TYPE1D, the fourth model in its TYPE1 series.

It is a new addition to the Japanese luxury watch brand’s mechanical watch series featuring a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The first two models in this line-up are NH TYPE 1B & NH TYPE1C. Both of them are now sold out and discontinued.

This NAOYA HIDA & Co. watch comes with a German silver dial featuring blued hands and a small seconds dial. The Breguet numerals on the dial are entirely hand-engraved by skilled craftsmen. The unique finish of the hour markers is a result of applying synthetic lacquer (cashew). The hands are hand polished after cutting with micro-fabrication machine.

The NH TYPE1D is driven by a manual-winding movement Ca.3019SS, which incorporates a newly developed click mechanism in the base movement, the ETA Valjoux 7750.
