Reading Time: 2 minutes

This is the settimana raw brass, the ideal counterpart to the settimana raw. The independent launched the silver dialed settimana raw last November (2021). The settimana raw allowed ochs und junior to go back to the beginning and reestablish Ludwig Oechslin‘s design grammar for ochs und junior. The dial of the raw brass comes directly from the CNC machine, and just like the silver-hued settimana raw, it takes minimalism to the extreme, eschewing Arabic numerals and even nickel plating itself. The hour, minute and second hands have a light coating of black Super-LuminNova®, as does the rotating dot (day indicator). The settimana raw brass is fitted with a black Cordura strap and a leather case, both handmade by designer Sabina Brägger.

  1. This watch is supercool but I don’t understand why the dots (for the days of the week) are distributed between 1 – 7? Why are the dots not perfectly spaced equidistant in a full circle? Why does the dot rapidly go from 8 -12? What is the purpose of this design decision? Thank you.

      Hi David,

      I suppose it is a mix of design with mechanical restriction but, that date between 1 and seven can make it easier to comprehend it (e.g: if it is at three, we know it is Wednesday), and 8/to 12 to have a nice animation (that was revealed for the pleasure of the viewer).
      But I will ask further.
