In recent years we have seen significant changes to people’s values and lifestyles, particularly with regard to the environment. The CAP-38 has been designed by Knot in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, utilizing environmentally friendly materials and design concepts to create a watch for the modern era. As a mechanical watch it does not require a replacement battery, and its movement can be repaired for as long as parts remain available, allowing for extended product life. With this sustainable focus, the CAP-38 is created for a new way of living.
At 9 o’clock a small window lets you see the mesmerizing dance of the balance wheel, the beating heart that keeps the watch’s time. The movement has been especially designed for open heart watches, providing a view of the exquisite mechanism behind the dial.
See the remaining runtime at a glance
Power reserve indicator
The fan-shaped sub-dial at 12 o’clock tells you how many hours of power reserve remain on the mechanical watch’s mainspring. The needle advances as the mainspring unwinds, indicating the remaining runtime. The watch will run for 40 hours with the mainspring fully wound. This indicator makes it easy to see how many hours remain until the watch will stop, unless the mainspring is wound. With this information, you can easily keep the watch wound even when you are not wearing it, so that it does not stop unexpectedly. Apart from being functional, it also serves as a decorative element, with its three-dimensional pattern adding to the watch’s classic charm.
In harmony with the Classic series
Two simple and universal face designs
We aim to live a minimalist life and cherish our natural environment. The Mechanical Open Heart watch adopts the universal and minimalist design which the Classic series has embodied since its inception. The dials have two types of hour markers, each with their own charm, enclosed in an elegant 38mm-diameter case. The bar markers are in keeping with the tradition of the Classic series: a minimalist dial design which effortlessly complements any outfit. The simple Roman numeral markers use a fine, delicate typeface befitting of the Classic series, accompanied by stylish blue hands which make the watch equally well suited to both formal and casual occasions.
The watch’s long, three-dimensional hands reach all the way to the markers – a unique feature enabled by the mechanical movement, since it has larger torque and more power to turn the hands than a quartz. The hands have a leaf-like shape to create a classical, elegant look, and have a tapered diamond cut which perfectly matches the Classic series. Their reflective contrast adds a luxury feel, as well as enhancing legibility.
Scratch-resistant, offering excellent clarity and visibility
A good watch should be easy to read and long-lasting. With careful maintenance, the movement of a mechanical watch can operate for decades. To retain optimum legibility, many luxury watches use sapphire glass for their crystal. Because it is not easily scratched, the dial maintains its clear legibility even after many years of use.
