What’s special? The addition of an optical system on a curved glass that turn the dial into a real luminosities receiver

Klok-08 Minim by Klokers: 46-cone squircle, 595 € TTC (Watch head and straight alligator strap with folding buckle)

46-cone squircle

A genuine concentrate of microtechnical complications beyond the obvious field of the caliber, the Klok-08 Minim watch from Klokers is distinctive for its hesalite glass endowed with a light-diffracting optical system. This transparent add-on is based on the Huygens-Fresnel principle to generate luminous effects on the dial: shadows, caustics, graphic splitting…

Its stripped display performs in neo-vintage mode the captures and the light leaks thanks to its squircle with 46 cones (mathematical union between a square and a circle). The ultra precision of a design dedicated to lovers of never static kinetics.

In motion choreography of shadows and lights

“There is nothing that is not stationary. Time unfolds as the definition of the impertinence of all things, nothing lasts and only the instant matters
” explains Nicholas Boutherin in charge of the strategic vision and artistic direction of Klokers.

Inspired by emptiness, the sound of color and the dazzling patterns of light, this delectable Klok-08 Minim collection presents itself as the definition of the ‘impermanent mystery‘.

Unique almost ritualistic gesture

Carrying the DNA of the brand, notably through the almost ritualistic gesture of conveying this temporal object from the wrist to the desk or to the shelf, this timepiece embodies the founding quest of a new iconic design.

“With this poetry made of association of the senses and life in reverse time, this Klok- 08 Minim collection, like a plaything, lets the emotions overwhelm us for the time of a breath. It is an invitation to contemplation…” states Nicholas Boutherin.
