Self-funded design research with folding mechanism hidden in the timepiece case.
The three major components (bezel, brame and back) use single curve arcs and are free of 3 face concave corners, to keep milling and polishing easy and cost-efficient.
For big volumes production, these components can simply be sliced out of laminated bars to drastically shorten the manufacturing steps.
Case design: Rhinoceros 3D. Dial and hands design: Inkscape and Illustrator.
