Zeitgeist Denmark

According to Wikipedia -
The Zeitgeist (spirit of the age or spirit of the time) is the intellectual fashion or dominant school of thought that typifies and influences the culture of a particular period in time. For example, the Zeitgeist of modernism typified and influenced architecture, art, and fashion during much of the 20th century.

So here's the story -


ZEITGEIST DENMARK


Zeitgeist Denmark is an independent, Danish based watch company that solely produce automatic, mechanical wrist watches.


The current timepieces from Zeitgeist Denmark are developed in collaboration with Danish watchmakers and The Technical University of Denmark.


Company headquarters are situated in the Danish countryside village of H√łng, dwelling in the buildings of an old rural train station.

Well the folks behind Zeitgeist of Denmark have taken this to heart with the design of their new collection.

This is the ANNO MECHANICA 


Ref. Ecc.1.3


To celebrate the first timepiece, the dial of the Anno Mechanica shares the grey brand color of Zeitgeist Denmark. Combined with the white arabic numbers and steel hands the watch manifests a simple and clean look.


The Anno Mechanica is limited to a production run of one year, produced solely in 2013.
All watches are individually numbered.

MECHANICA


Ref. Ps.90.12


The Mechanica Ref. Ps.90.12 is created in the attempt to capture current trends in watchmaking while keeping in mind a timeless appeal. With its 43mm steel case it can hardly be described as a slight watch. However, the simplistic design gives it an understated expression.

The Mechanica Ref. Ps.90.12 is limited to 100, individually numbered, pieces.
