BASEL PREVIEW: Zeitwinkel 188°


Zeitwinkel is set to launch its new 188° timepiece at BaselWorld, a watch tailored to those that prefer a little understated elegance.

The Swiss brand has drawn inspiration from pocket watches for the three-handed 188°, which it says highlights "the refinement and expertise inherent in Swiss styling and quality".

The 188° has a galvanised blue dial, off-centre seconds at 6 o’clock and date at 3 o’clock. Zeitwinkel has also branched out into smaller wristwatch sizes, with the 188° available in a 39mm case size. It houses Zeitwinkel’s manufacture movement, the ZW0102 calibre, with a 72-hour power reserves.
