We did it: we made a 40mm watch. Although some might think it too large for the average wrist, or imagine it unsuitable for business use, nothing could be further from the truth. We’ve created an appealingly large, simple watch face with excellent legibility. It’s large in diameter, but slim in thickness, so the resulting watch does not feel bulky. Its sapphire glass is strong and dependable, and it’s always nice to have the calendar at a glance. The CD-40’s user-friendly design and attention to detail make it suitable for any outfit. An all-new watch and all-new size.
Thoughtfully designed for a large size with great legibility.
You may imagine that a bigger watch automatically makes it more legible, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Knot’s 40mm watch has been designed with a thoughtfully minimalist approach that keeps the watch true to its purpose. Its bezel is slim and angular, the lower part of the case is cut away to make it feel thinner, and the alternating Arabic numerals and bar markers make it easy to read. These design considerations have created a watch which is both large in size and highly legible.
It’s always useful to have a calendar on hand.
There are many occasions in everyday life when we need to check the date, so it’s useful to have that information on your wrist at all times. The calendar window is large and metal framed, making the date easy to read at a glance.
Scratch resistant, clear, and easy to read
Sapphire glass is used as the crystal material in many luxury watches. It is scratch resistant and will retain clear visibility for years to come.
