This is the latest from the folks at Nord Zeitmaschine -

 The Quickindicator in black V4 (Black).

This is not the most "obvious" of dial layouts, but that is what is so appealing about it.  Below are a few examples to clarify.  8:11 and 8:49.

Here are further details straight from the source -


The minute hand of the Model Quickindicator makes 3 revolutions per hour and travels in 60 minutes over a minute track of 205mm length, means the hand (top) travels with a speed of 205mm/hour. Because of this, Quickindicator is the name of the watch. The  Quickindicator has possibly the fastest minute hand in any mechanical wristwatch.
Travelling on three overlapping ovoid-minute tracks, the minute hand has two axes of rotation, one of the hand itself, and the other the rotating platform the hand is mounted on.
