Horizon watches’ architecture is based on an unusually high number of parts and innovative technical solutions. Horizon’s sapphire crystal is cut and polished from the front to the back. To perfectly fit the domed dial and crystal, the hands are delicately bent at the tip. In addition, their rotation point is at a higher level than the corners of the glass, reinforcing the doomed impression of the case.
The curved shape of the case and the integration of the bracelet or the leather strap make Horizon timepieces comfortable to wear. Another special feature is the date window displaying the date preceding and following the current “D-day” with a little arrow pointing to the date.

Stainless Steel Bracelet
Minase uses stainless steel 316L for all of its watches. The metal is hand-polished with the Sallaz (also called sarazu) polishing technique. The artisan polish the pieces by hand for an incredible result.
They spend more than 18 hours on a single case. The sallaz polishing technique only enables the craftsmen to polish flat surfaces, so they need to be very careful not to damage the case.
COLLECTION HORIZON MIDSIZE
The midsize version is not just a smaller version of the regular serie, it was completely redesigned and is an elegant alternative for smaller wrists.
