In Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
Timepieces are composed of abalone shell and Mother of Pearl. Photos shown represent black abalone with mother of pearl and natural abalone with mother of pearl.
Shell: Abalone shell was harvested and managed under strict fishing quotas. Only the waste shell is used. Product shade, pattern, and color variations are inherent natural characteristics.
Case: 35mm polished stainless steel, scratch resistant sapphire glass, water resistant to 30 meters.
Movement: The heart of the watch - is a Swiss made Ronda movement (cell 364). Standard battery life is 40 months. Power saving mechanism with pulled-out stem: Reduction of consumption by approximately 70%.
Hands: Three hands - standard hours, minutes and seconds indication. Luminous (Glow in the Dark).
Bands: All bands are hand-sewn vegetable-tanned goat leather that will feel soft and luxurious next to your skin.
Vegetable-tanned leather, made with natural tannins, looks and feels more natural and has a beautiful texture of color. Over time, the band will improve. If you've ever seen a leather jacket or bag that looks beautifully aged, it's probably vegetable-tanned leather. Vegetable-tanned leather develops a patina over time, giving the leather a soft sheen and beautiful depth of color. The patina develops in response to usage and exposure to sunlight and heat, making each item truly unique to the owner. Vegetable-tanned leather also often smells sweet and earthy, rather than the chemical, synthetic smell of chrome-tanned leather.
