Dietrich OT Watch

With a distinctive design that’s inspired by nature rather than by man’s own creations, Dietrich’s OT Watch line — which stands for Organic Time — is bold, intricate, and maybe a tad divisive. Each features luminescent hands shaped like leaves, a spinning star which represents seconds, a 24-hour time disk, and a sapphire crystal lens etched on the underside with hour and minute markings capping a steel case. A modified Miyota 82S7 automatic movement powers the timepiece, visible as it ticks away through the large cutout in the center of its layered dial. Despite a 46mm width and a not-insignificant overall heft it’s extremely comfortable thanks to its flowing organic curves as well as the pass-through strap that slips through the lugs on either end. It comes in a variety of case and dial color combinations, not to mention higher-end models with forged carbon bezels.  [ learn more ]
