The " HYBRID ORIGINAL ARCTIC " is a Worldtimer watch that showcases the “ Arctic Ocean ”, which depicts the ecological beauty of the region in black and white layers.
The " HYBRID ORIGINAL ARCTIC " was inspired by “Our Planet”, the 2019 natural history documentary series produced by Netflix, Silverback Productions and WWF. The documentary presents an unprecedented look at the survival of species at risk in icy worlds, desert grasslands and forest habitats.
Based on "OUR PLANET", ZTAGE features four different watches representing different habitats of animals on the planet, with an aim to promote the spirit of conservation. WWF - Hong Kong is the designated beneficiary of this project.
World map visuals aesthetically impressive
The northern hemisphere graphic in the center of the watch is a double-layered structure added with Swiss Super-LumiNova. The refined, multi-dimensional layer of the northern hemisphere shines brightly at night, illuminating dazzling brilliance.
Ground-breaking four-side integrated case
To bring layers and fine lines to perfection, we finally brought our visionary concept to life after two long years of reworking, starting from 2019.
Complexity of the case
To give the watch a distinctive layering on both sides, the lugs are divided into two separate components, which are inserted and secured from both sides. The bezel is inserted from top to bottom and the case back from bottom to top, forming a four-sided insertion into the main case at the same time. This design not only creates an eye-catching visual effect, but also opens endless possibilities for future extensions.
All nine components of the case are hand-polished in over 30 steps, creating a luxurious interplay of satin and polished lines.
Our goal is to break free from the shackles of traditional watchmaking and become one of the most recognizable designs in the history of watchmaking. That’s why we gave the watch a "crown-shaped bezel". The bezel is visible from both sides of the watch as a "crown" at the top of the main case, creating a lingering moment of grandeur and mystery.
The crown of the HYBRID ORIGINAL - " ARCTIC " is set with a " luminescent bead ", a unique feature of the brand. When viewed at night, the light shines through the crown and sparkles in the evening sky.
Rigorous testing - “Every watch is exceptional”
Prior to watch assembly, the accuracy of the movement is adjusted internally at 5 different angles to ensure that the movement is in the best possible condition, and the accuracy of each movement is strictly limited to +/- 6 seconds per day.
In addition to the precision assembly, we execute the 240-hour official runtime test to make sure everything is in perfect condition.
