Swiss luxury watch brand BYRNE presents the new GyroDial “INDOARABIQUE”, a limited edition of 23 timepieces with a petroleum green dial, symbolizing paradise in the Arab world and peace in the Hindu world.
Developed by John Byrne and launched in 2022, the GyroDial watch features a patented animation complication. At midnight or noon every day (or when the wearer wishes), the 4 cardinal indices– at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock –rotate to reveal a different face. Hindu-Arabic, Roman, Arabic numerals or ‘phantom’ indices – the switch happens in a flash, giving the watch a completely different look each time.
Every year, Byrne Watch has the ambition of presenting a limited series that refers to the current year.
For 2023, BYRNE WATCH proposes a limited edition with Hindu-Arabic numerals on a mesmerizing dial in deep, petroleum green: the GyroDial “INDOARABIQUE”.
Every day at noon, midnight or on demand, the four main indexes on the GyroDial “IndoArabique” switch to reveal a different face: Hindu-Arabic, Roman and modern Arabic numerals as well as phantom indices are respectively depicted on one face of the four rotating cuboids positioned at the cardinal points, flush with the dial; the switch from one to the other happens instantaneously, in a flash.
The 311 case, like the caliber 5555, was entirely designed, developed and manufactured in Switzerland for the GyroDial. Embedded in the supple curves carved into titanium, the satin-brushed Petroleum Green dial with its straight-grain finish gives off a contemporary and very racy aesthetic.
This watch is available for purchase at Chronopassion in France, Chronometrie Von Hofen in Germany, Provident in the US, and 10:10 LABS in Bahrain.
