The Tree of Life

With all the bluster and preening of the big dogs getting ready for BaselWorld, it was actually quite refreshing to receive the news of a new brand with (in my opinion anyway) a very charming first effort.

This is the Tree of Life, and it has perhaps one of the coolest functions I have ever heard of!  You will notice that the main portion of the top of the dial is a tree with leaves.  In the image above you will see that the leaves are mostly gone, and the remainder are autumn colors?

Allow me to introduce you to Spring!  You will notice that half of the tree's leaves have now turned to green.  And I could use a visual reminder like this right now, as today is March 13, and as you can see, we are still waiting for Spring here in the Metro Boston area -


This nifty complication is courtesy of an in-house module for displaying the seasons. The module is constructed of 18 unique parts and has a quick setting function for correcting the complication.  This is combined with the ETA 2892 A2.


The case is of 316L stainless steel, satin brushed and available in three versions - stainless, black, and yellow gold.  It measures 38 mm in width, 52 mm in length and 14.8 mm thick.

I have to be honest, this is a watch that I can't wait to see in person! It is original, intriguing and fun all at the same time.   

The Tree of Life will be available for pre-order shortly, with a special introductory price.
