Azimuth SP-1 Landship Watch Looks Like a Tank
May 7th, 2011
I like wristwatches, even if I don’t wear them. I like to look at the cool designs and I, especially like the watches that have the intricate little gears and parts to the movement inside. I can only imagine how complex designing one of those watches would be. A cool new watch has launched from Azimuth called the SP-1 Landship.
Apparently, a Landship is what tanks were called back in World War I times. This watch is made from titanium, and the hours are displayed on the small dome on top of the watch. The numbers rotate by and are easy to view and read. The minutes rotate by on the large front window that looks like a windshield.
Both of those dials are covered with a sapphire crystal. The Landship is thought to use a windup Swiss ETA automatic movement. The watch is also water resistant to 30-meters and will sell for 6,800 Swiss francs (appx. $7737 USD) and just 100 will be made.
