Sometimes, with all the complications, elaborate designs and ways to display time, it is refreshing to see a watch that brings everything back to the essence of it all. That watch is the Pinion Pure, which is a hand wound watch powered by a Swiss movement (Unitas 6498).
The mechanical movement was originally developed for pocket watches in the 1950s meaning it is larger than most modern watch movements, however, sits nicely in the 42mm case size of the Pure.
The requirement to wind the timepiece on a regular basis allows the owner to form a connection and to discover the delight of the slower tick-tick sound that you only really get with older hand wound watches from an era before the 1970s.
