Angular Momentum Creates The Timeless Classic Dress Watch

These days, the luxury watch market seems to be dominated by sports watches. Plenty of contemporary high-end watches strive to blur the gender divide. Unisex timepieces are the order of the day. You do find the occasional retro timepiece, but largely the days of classic dress watches for men are over. However, Swiss watch maker Angular Momentum does not think so. The luxury watch company recently launched their Classic Dress Watch as an addition to their Technical Timepiece Collection.

Angular Momentum’s Technical Timepiece Collection is a line of small and limited edition timepieces that are created in the firm’s workshop in Bern, Switzerland. The Classic Dress Watch, which belongs to this category is a line of luxury timepieces that seek to recreate the simple and elegant lines of gentleman’s watches of the mid-20th century. The just-released Classic Dress Watch is retro to the tee. It is simple to the point of nearly being boring, but don’t form your opinion just yet. Angular Momentum’s new timepiece line is deceptively simple.

It has a three-body 1.4435Ncu Staybrite steel casing with a mirror polished finish. The simple dial is actually made of solid mother of pearl that has been cut out of fresh water shells. The indexes at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock points are built of polished stainless steel. The timepiece was created to mark 50 years of the historic  hand-winding movement caliber FHF 96. The same movement runs the 2011 version of this Classic Dress Watch – a simple and timeless watch that takes you back to an different time.
