For over 3000 years, the Sun has turned on the Nomadic Empires, home to some of the greatest civilizations history has known. Through waves of rise and fall, these historical Empires connected and ruled the East and West throughout history. We pay tribute to these empires today with the Nomadic Empire collection - heritage timepieces that are the modern reincarnation of a tradition passed Father to Son for millennia.  

At the heart of each timepiece is the Shanyrak {Shah-nee-rahk], a timeless symbol of home, hearth, and heritage. For millennia, the empires that ruled the known world housed their people in yurts, mobile dwellings for noble emissaries and mercenaries alike.

At the vertex of the yurt is the Shanyrak, the cross piece structure that held the building together, and let the dweller view the sky.

While every other part of the yurt would be replaced over time, the Shanyrak was eternal. Passed from Father to Son through the turning of generations, a family’s heritage was measured by the “vintage” of their Shanyrak, aged over the family fire for countless decades. Traditionally, when the first-born son came of age and became responsible for his family, his Father would pass him the Shanyrak, symbolizing both trust in the next generation and the responsibility the Son now defended.      

The Nomadic Empire collection represents our passion to expose this tradition to the modern age. Through the rise and fall of empires, the symbolism of the Shanyrak remains. We invite you to join this tradition, and to pass a symbol of your hearth for generations on.

The Collection consists of unique models, inspired by the key figures of Nomadic Empires:

 

The Nomad model features Silver Titanium 42 mm Case and Black matte dial. 

 

Size and shape make it Unisex. Ladies love our Nomadic Models. See Gallery below for inspirations. 

The Khan model features Rosegold 42 mm Titanium Case and Black matte dial. 

  

 

The Conqueror model features Black 42 mm Titanium Case and Black matte Dial.

 

  

The Eagle Hunter model features silver 42 mm Titanium case and White matte Dial. 

 

 

 

 

Physical characteristics of Titanium make it a preferential material in aerospace and automobile industries, known for its high durability, strength, and low density.

Corrosion resistance is another significant attribute of Titanium as it compares to other materials such as stainless steel. Steel is corrosive, rusts, and is heavier than Titanium. Steel’s density is 7.85 g/cm3, and titanium has 56% that of steel. Another substantial advantage of Titanium is its biological compatibility, which makes it a preferred material in surgical implants. All these attributes contribute to the overall usefulness and preference of Titanium, making it precious and more costly. While steel can shatter, Titanium can withstand extreme high and low temperatures.   

 

 

Skeleton Automatic Miyota 8n24 is a solid and reliable movement, especially when compared to Swiss counterparts. A work of art and a thing of beauty: exhibiting the inner workings and components of the movement make it a true pleasure to look at. 8n24 is a Self-Winding Automatic movement, which is powered by the motions of your hands. 

 

The Rotating Disc - demonstrates the Seconds hand movement, is the prime highlight of the timepiece, rotating in sweeping motion. Made from high grade aluminum, the disc represents the Shanyrak, which was at the vertex of the homes for the Nomadic Empires, yurts.     

Diamond cut Red Hour Hand symbolizes the Fire, an essential element of life and hearth for Nomadic empires. Blue Minute hand symbolizes the Sky.  

 

Our dial is made of 2 layers [sandwich style], thus adding a deep 3 Dimensional look. The under layer is filled with Super-Luminova, which illuminates the numerals on the dial in the dark. The Dial Ring is set at 45 degree angle to add depth to the watch.   

Matte finishing creates visual contrast with the glossy elements of the Dial Ring and the hands.
