Divido's unique design is inspired by the Japanese 3-dimentional puzzle. Through a revolutionary approach in watchmaking, the dial seems to be floating inside the case, suspended below the box-type sapphire window. Indeed, there is physical space between the case and the edges of the dial, which is only fixed by four tiny screws on the corners, enabling light to flood in from all sides on the hand-painted dial.
Sarazu hand-polishingMinase watches' steel parts are hand-polished with the Sallaz polishing technique (also known as sarazu). A technique of polishing the steel by hand, piece after piece requiring an impressive level of skills and dexterity. Furthermore, steel bracelets are uniquely constructed; No exterior screws or pins are visible when the watch is worn thanks to the use of tiny screws on the underside of each bracelet link.
MORE & Case in Case“Minase Original Rebuilding Equation” patented structure allows Minase watchmakers to assemble and disassemble exterior parts of the watch, such as the case and bracelet, as many times as they need to refit or repair the watch. The case in case construction is unique to Minase watches and was inspired by Japanese 3D puzzles. The mechanical movement is enclosed between a plate and a top container (which acts as the dial) on which the index ring is fitted. This whole inner box looks like a floating structure screwed at the four corners inside each case.
