Something Epic from Savoy

This is a BaselWorld preview from the folks at Savoy

This is part of the Epic Single Time Automatic Vault Series.

A dial that is composed of discs that rotate to reveal the time without the use of hands!

Here's the scoop, straight from Savoy -

The case is crafted of 44 mm of solid (316L) stainless steel and is also finished either in black PVD or IP plating.  Matching colored rubber inserts have been integrated into the case sides bearing the same color pattern as the dial. 

The self-winding Swiss movement can be admired through an exhibition back revealing the micro mechanical heartbeat of the EPIC SINGLE TIME AUTOMATIC.

What makes this watch truly epic is the manner by which time is measured:
Hours, minutes, and even seconds are displayed via a 3-layer dial comprised of rotating discs replacing the hands you might ordinarily expect.  Telling the time becomes an interactive pleasure with the hours and minutes gracefully revealed as the discs rotate across the dial.

The hour is revealed through a display window in the outermost ring.  The minutes are measured in a digital format that moves clockwise in the ring just beneath the hour.  Finally, the seconds tick continuously in the innermost circle.  Time to be savored.
