The X-Frame Mechanical Watch Relaunch

CA$ 87,373

Dear Friends,

My goal from the beginning was to bring you a fine luxury mechanical watch this is truly unique and one of a kind.

This project is a result of almost two years of very hard work, please take your time to look through the pictures and the video descriptions.

You have Eight color Combinations to chose from, you also can chose either the open Heart PTS movement shown here and if you prefer the classic Date/Time NH35 Seiko movement you have that option too.

I will be looking forward to hearing from you soon,

God Bless,

Chadi, Umbrella Watch Group

Engineering Design


Look at some of the most extreme designs out there: the F-117 Stealth Bomber, Batman's Tumbler or the Lamborghini Reventon. They share a common feature: they all have curveless or faceted designs.

From Day 1, curves where completely eliminated from our design equation --

Only sharp edges and hard angles remain.

The X-Frame design was taken to another extreme by breaking down each of the main watch Case Components (Watch Bezel, Case Middle, Case Back and Screw Down Crown) into separate parts, then designing those components separately.

  • The Case Middle has five Components including the screw-down crown.
  • The Watch Bezel alone consists of three parts layered on top of each other. The Bezel components have a 10-sided Decagonal design.
  • The Case Back is transparent and also has a 10-sided Decagonal design.
  • The Screw Down Crown is designed to resemble a Gear and also ensures water-resistance by sealing it to the Case.
  • The Watch is 10ATM/100 Meters Water Resistant.

**Case Components are bolt on assembly

Dial, Hands, Markers and Strap

  • Multilayer Dial with a honeycomb pattern in the background, the dial ring has 12 hexagon hour markers.
  •   Super-Luminous Hands and Hour Markers

The Strap was designed to seamlessly fit into the watch and is attached to the case with four screws.

Finishing

Sapphire Glass is used on both the Watch and Transparent Case Back

All Eight Watches have a Matte Finish:

1) X-FRAME VULCAN BR, Matte Black Case/Rose Gold Bezel

2) X-FRAME VULCAN RB, Matte Rose Gold Case/Black Bezel

3) X-FRAME VULCAN BB, Matte Black Case/Black Bezel

4) X-FRAME VULCAN SB, Matte Gray Case/Black Bezel

5) X-FRAME VULCAN SS, Matte Gray Case/Gray Bezel

6) X-FRAME VULCAN RS, Matte Rose Gold Case/Gray Bezel

7) X-FRAME VULCAN RR, Matte Rose Gold Case/Rose Gold Bezel

8) X-FRAME VULCAN SR, Matte Gray Case/Rose Gold Bezel

Mechanism ( Two Options)

You Have two options for movement :

Option 1: (Not Shown)

The Seiko (SII) Caliber NH35A Movement Features Hours, Minuted, central seconds and date calender.

Power Reserve is at 41 hours/21,600 bph

Option 2:

The PTS Resources movement is a Dual Time Self Winding Mechanism, it is a partially transparent design style Movement.

accuracy is at +/- 30 seconds/35 hour power reserve/21'600 alternances/hou/24 jewels

 In other words, you get a partial view of what’s going on inside the watch.

A Separate Three-Seven Shaped Seconds Blade is directly placed on top of the Mechanism window.

Production Process

The extreme geometries in the Design components means that X-Frame cannot be made using the typical open-mold manufacturing process you see in over 95% of watches today.

All parts have to be CNC Machined individually with very accurate precision and zero room for error.

This Method of production is almost exclusive to limited production runs by high-end watch manufacturers.
