Values and lifestyles will change drastically in the coming era. We endeavor to live a minimal life that values the natural environment. What kind of wristwatch fits in with such a lifestyle? The Knot Mechanical Open Heart is one piece that was born from seriously considering these issues.
From the small window at the 9 o'clock position on the dial you can see the movement of the balance, which is the heart that keeps time. The movement specially designed for open heart watches gives you a unique sense of the delicate gimmick and beating heart.

Power reserve indicator
The fan-shaped display in the 12 o'clock position is a function that allows you to see at a glance length of time for which power remains on the mainspring of a mechanical watch. The needle advances as the mainspring unwinds, giving you an idea of the remaining time. It will run for 40 hours with the mainspring fully wound. This indicator makes it easy to convey simply how a mechanical watch will stop unless the mainspring is wound. Since you can see the remaining power, by keeping it wound even when you are not wearing it, it is less likely to stop without you noticing. Not only is it functional, but also as a decorative element, the three-dimensional pattern enhances the classic charm.
In keeping with the Classic series
Two simple and universal face designs
We endeavor to live a minimal life that values the natural environment. The Mechanical Open Heart watch, which follows this theme of “an ideal watch for a new era”, uses the universal and minimalistic Classic series design that has not changed since our company was founded. There are two types of indices, each with their own charm, in an easy-to-use, 38mm-diameter case. The bar indices are in keeping with the Classic series, a minimalist dial design that fits elegantly with any outfit. The simple Roman numeral index design, featuring dressy blue hands and a fine and delicate typeface that is in keeping with the Classic series, creates a watch that is equally at home on both formal and casual occasions.
A long, three-dimensional hand that reaches the minute indices, a feature unique to a mechanical movement as it has more power to turn the hands than quartz. The leaf hands, whose leaf-like shape creates a classical and elegant look, have a peak-shaped diamond cut that is in keeping with the Classic series. They enhance both the sense of quality and the visibility thanks to the contrast due to reflection.
Scratch-resistant, offering clarity and visibility
〝It is important for a “good watch” to have excellent visibility and to be able to be used for a long time. With careful maintenance of the movement used in a mechanical watch, it can be used regularly for decades. Meanwhile, in order to maintain excellent visibility, the glass used in many luxury watches is sapphire glass. Because it is not easily scratched, even if used for many years, it maintains its clear visibility.
