The side of the case fully reveals its skeleton monocoque construction, only achievable with 3D printing technology. It features the Holthinrichs signature and refined details like optically detached lugs, only connected to the case body by invisible micro-joints. The skeleton design makes the watch ultralight and comfortable to wear, weighing only 20 grams in total excluding the strap.
We made the meteorite dial out of Muonionalusta, a fine Octahedrite iron meteorite forming a beautiful so-called Widmanstatten pattern. Muonionalusta is the oldest known meteorite to have impacted the Earth.
Twelve slim and gently sloped baton-shaped indices (key elements in the DECONSTRUCTED line) are designed to guide the viewer's gaze towards the centre into a seemingly infinite space.
We opened the sub-second counter to reveal the kinetics of the mechanical movement. Emphasizes the dynamic and sporty character of the timepiece.
The hands of our DECONSTRUCTED series are designed to reflect the finishing of the case: a sharp sword shape style, open-worked and prominent handmade anglage. To give them a strong presence we cut them out of extra thick corrosion-resistant spring steel.
With the DECONSTRUCTED series we are bound to take movement component manufacturing and finishing to the next level. The caliber HW-M01 is 50% made in-house and based on an improved Peseux 7001 architecture. Research and development into the movement and manufacturing were already initiated in 2017 and resulted in a caliber which is simple in its functioning, but constructed for higher stiffness and improved timekeeping. Its bridges are made out of German silver. A material which is beautiful when left uncoated, but also offering a fine base for manual finishing and optional galvanic treatments.
The METEORITE HW-M01 features a hand-applied scraping pattern, giving it a more natural and materialistic expression, reflecting the texture of the meteorite on the dial. For both movements, Holthinrichs ensures that all components are meticulously finished and embellished with laser-etched details and a strongly manually applied anglage containing 11 hand-cut inward angles.
