The first Frankfurt Financial District Watch is a testament to our strong roots in Frankfurt am Main and the special relationship we have with this location. This close affiliation is also reflected in our decision to base our new headquarters in the city once again.
We see the 1746 Heimat as an homage to this city. The extremely fine rhodiumcoated relief dial is inspired by the traditional diamond pattern of Frankfurt’s popular cider glasses, also known as Gerippte. The three-dimensional diamond pattern creates an incredibly vibrant interplay of light and shade on the cider glasses.
A close look at the relief on the dial of the 1746 Heimat reveals this watch to be just as vibrant and three-dimensional, with a wide range of surface characteristics from polished to matt silk. This effect is a result of the electroforming technique used in the production process. This method allows complex three-dimensional surface structures to be achieved with a high degree of precision. The relief dial is coated with rhodium, a precious metal similar to platinum, which gives the dial an exquisite silver-white shine.
And of course, we have also made this watch pressure-resistant up to 10 bar and resistant to low pressure.
