    Vario | Empire Art Deco Dress Watch - Automatic & Handwound

    Hi fellow WIS

    I'm Ivan from Vario and I am launching a new watch on Kickstarter 30 April 2019 (Handwound version already in production)

    Empire is a watch that pays tribute to the Art Deco period inspired by sleek geometry, elegant typography and curvatures from the 1930s. We've opted out of impersonal stock parts, choosing instead to give each watch in the collection its own custom-made case, dial, crown and hands for visual drama. We've also pared down the pronounced horn lugs for a more refined, contemporary look. At its core, the sapphire glass-covered Miyota 6T33 hand wound movement allows for a smooth winding ritual. Powering the automatic is Seiko NH38A workhorse.

    I’m curious. What font or style is the numeral 8 and 10? It looks out of place.

    As table clock collectors know it is a „typical“ 1930/Art Deco layout.

    Here‘s a German made Mauthe desk clock.

    Kienzle and Junghans did use these Art Deco numerals in the 1930s too.

    Here‘s a Vertigo Berlin using those numerals as well.

    This is one kickoff I have been looking forward to--both versions look great--love the art deco numerals, and overall styling.

    Thanks for the compliments :) i really hope to either just meet my goal or surpass my stretch goal by a fair bit. if i just hit my stretch goal (borderline)... i'm gonna be stuck with quite a few autos to sell.
