Automatic Mechanical Watch

A quality watch gives you an elegant and stylish look. It can also complement your clothing and arm you with self-confidence. Mechanical watches (which include both the hand-winding and automatic variety) are not only swanky but high-quality and durable. So, they will offer you great service while giving you a classy look. There is a connection between man and machine; without that human element, the watch wouldn’t work. It needs something with a human heartbeat to make its own – the balance – come to life. You don’t get that with a battery. You wind it by hand or, when wearing it, power it by the movement of your wrist and if the watch has an open back you can see the movement working, which is a wonderful thing.

 
The ORICO, bridges two worlds of classic and modern with elegant, timeless design. Inspired by the sunflower and seeds pattern, the design emphasizes functionality and simplicity while still embodying a futuristic look. the timepiece expands on the concept by defying symmetry and conformity with subtle elements. The little breaks in consistency create a final model that exudes versatility and boldness. It is a respectful understanding of the past while fiercely defining the future.


The ORICO is an automatic mechanical watch that comes in a 45mm 316Ti Stainless Steel – Titanium case and black rubber strap, making it long-lasting and scratch-free. We imagined this chic sport-formal model using the beautiful, subdued aesthetic grammar of the circle. The ergonomic elegance of the ORICO is based on the slim profile of the case that espouses the wrist, while the bezel is strictly horizontal, parallel to the skeletonized baseplate. As its movement is just 6.4 mm thick, the ORICO was able to limit the thickness of the case to 14 mm.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Materials: 316Ti Stainless Steel – Titanium

Dimensions : Width 45 x Height 45 cm x Depth 14 cm
Water Resistance: 3ATM/50M

SPRUNG BALANCE WITH VARIABLE INERTIA
The free-sprung balance at 8 o’clock offers increased reliability in the event of shocks and movement assembly or disassembly, thus achieving better chronometric results over time. The index has been eliminated, allowing more precise and repeatable adjustment using 4 set screws. This guarantees greater reliability when subjected to shock and during movement assembly or disassembly, hence better chronometric results over time. The regulator index has been eliminated, guaranteeing a more accurate and repeatable calibration thanks to 4 small adjustable weights located directly on the balance.
 
CALIBRE
Automatic self-winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, rotary g-sensor, power-reserve indicator, and function selector.
Limited edition of 42 pieces.

Producing the ORICO case is an extremely complex task, as almost 30 parts are required to create it. The design of the watch demonstrates a holistic approach to the conception of the movement, case, and dial. Its four-part construction includes the rotating bezel that plays a role in keeping the timepiece water-resistant. The case is made of grade 5 titanium and features exceptional hand finishing. The bezel, the case back, and the crown protector are polished and satin-brushed. The baseband has vertical satin brushing, while the lugs have vertical and horizontal satin brushing and polished beveled edges. The case is assembled with 6 screws in grade 5 titanium and is water-resistant to 30 meters, ensured by two O-ring seals.

The idea of the pattern on the rotor and as well as on the dial is inspired by the sunflower seed pattern. The pattern of seeds within a sunflower follows the Fibonacci sequence, or 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144… If you remember back to math class, each number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two numbers. In sunflowers, the spirals you see in the center are generated from this sequence — there are two series of curves winding in opposite directions, starting at the center and stretching out to the petals, with each seed sitting at a certain angle from the neighboring seeds to create the spiral.
