The team at SEVENFRIDAY have once again come up with something a little different in an industry that can sometimes be a little repetitive.
The S1/01 is an homage to industrial processes without abandoning a sense of luxury or environmental responsibility. The animation ring on this piece, which is SF speak for the outer case decoration depicting their distinctive squared circle design, is constructed from entirely recyclable materials. Which we think might be a first for the watch industry.
The dial on the S1/01 is a manifestation of this openness of process. It stops just short of being a true skeleton but allows the wearer the satisfaction of seeing deep into the movement, which goes hand in hand with their philosophy at SF. The idea of living one’s passion, of being honest and open about the things that drive one.
Also, and this is just as important, if not actually more so than all the spiel about recycling and honesty, it’s a damn fine looking watch! From the sandblasted and polished stainless steel case, to the metallic blue Supernova on the hands, it looks slick.
