For avid players of Roulette, Azimuth has launched the aptly named “Roulette” watch; inspired by the obvious; the roulette wheel and its solid rectangular table. The Roulette was produced to coincide with the opening of Singapore’s first casino in 2010.
The winding crown takes the form of a dice and serves two purposes: to set the time and to activate the spinning ball. By depressing and releasing the dice at the same time, the player “starts the ball rolling” (or spinning in this case). The hand with the ball spins around the roulette dial and stops, always landing randomly in a “slot” at the base of a number.
The three-dimensional roulette dial gives the impression of a miniature roulette wheel encapsulated in a sapphire crystal.
Massive the case may be (at 45mm x 34mm), this block of CNC-cut 316L stainless steel case is ergonomically designed to ensure a snug fit on the user’s wrist with its highly curved back case which also has the Azimuth signature “porthole” design showing the balance wheel spinning. The phrase “BEAT THE CASINO!” can be seen marked on the back plate just to give the owner some encouragement before he or she steps onto the casino floor!
One feels as if he is gazing at the universe from the inside of a space shuttle when reading the time on the Spaceship. Its enigmatic dark blue dial is showered with tiny specks of radiating stars on a clear night.
Matching the mesmerizing dial design is its equally ingenious jumping hour display.
Powered by a Unitas 6497-1 movement with the Côtes de Genève decoration, a rotating disc, framed by the short end of the three dimensional minute hand, features a jumping hour complication. Highly stylized, the broad minute hand comes finished with a skeletonized outline that resembles a space shuttle hurtling across the universe.
A breathtakingly sculptural masterpiece, the SP-1 Mécanique mimics the profile of a spacecraft’s cockpit. Its 45mm stainless steel case with elongated lugs is capped by a domed sapphire crystal to lend the watch a multidimensional look. The avant-garde case design with a giant crown at the 12 o’clock position is guaranteed to send fans of whimsical horological excursions over the moon.
