Do you love collecting watches, or are you a silent admirer on the side? Well, here is a watch that will clearly take a very different path from that of the usual suspects (Rolex, Patek, Tag, the works). I am referring to the Azimuth SP-1 Landship timepiece that brings back memories of the heavily armored war machine which was first caught trampling down barbed wires and trenches in World War 2. The SP-1 Landship’s turret holds a 3-dimensional Wandering Hour Drum, allowing you to read the hour in an upright manner by peering inside the turret, making it a totally different method of reading time on a flat plane as one would normally do.
Clearly, seeing the Azimuth SP-1 Landship’s design itself shows that it carries a distinctive shape and function, translating to a unique manufacturing process which is very different from the conventional means of watch-making. Sporting Azimuth’s own in-house modified 28,800 vph Swiss-made “X-1” retrograde minutes and wondering hour movement, you will not find a similar movement in other Swiss watches. This is clearly a limited edition timepiece, and individual watches will have their own serial number. Limited to just 100 pieces, the Azimuth SP-1 Landship will cost you a pretty $8,799.99.
