Raum_I

This guy right here... His name is Makina Raum_I, an entirely new demon born to bring balance to the family line-up.

Designed to look like a tank made out of 316L stainless steel, Raum is made for prominence and wrist dominance, measuring at 42mm in diameter, 48mm lug to lug. An angular design at first glance but is actually curvaceous in totality, brushed and polished in just the right places.

Underneath the sapphire crystal...

Is not your usual sector dial. It is inspired by the front and sides of a revolver's cylinder (where the ammunition goes). The metallic arabic markers mark the odd hour numbers. The even hour numbers are marked with concave shapes coming out of the dial's innermost circle. We opted to go with gold plated brass hands that we think add character to the entire piece... plus, it matches what's on the back. 

On the back... ​

Is an automatic, Sellita SW 200-1, visible through an exhibition caseback. Raum_I will be the first from Makina to sport a Swiss movement. Apart from the back of the case being uniquely flat, the case construction of Raum is quite different; the traditional circular caseback shape that you see in the photo is actually one piece with the sides and lugs.

Raum is dressed in a genuine crocodile leather strap, hand-made and hand-stitched, with a deployant clasp for convenience and protection of the leather. It also comes with an additional black silicone strap. 

 

It is intended to be versatile and can be worn as a sporty dress watch, as well as a rugged daily wear adventurer.
