I want to thank the folks at Schwarz Etienne for doing something that rarely happens during a big fair/show week - they did something FUN!

It goes without saying, SIHH and BaselWorld are where you put out the pieces that show you're a serious brand with serious stuff, and by golly... you better take us seriously!  But in all fairness, this seriousness can be conveyed in a manner that is also fun, engaging and enjoyable!

The shape of the 45 mm stainless steel case is inspired  by the flying saucers that may (or may not) call Roswell, New Mexico their home away from home.

Hours, minutes and a very subtle (and very cool) small second indicator at 11 o'clock, and a super-dope date display between the 1 and 2 o'clock indices.  And that date function has a special twist.
