Minase Horizon Midsize
With the collection Horizon, Minase wanted to pay tribute to their beautiful island country. Whenever you go to the shore, you can see the horizon line. So far away, the ocean always looks calm, and that’s what Minase tried to transpose with the Horizon watch. Horizon Midsize was designed for thinner wrists, a slightly smaller and very elegant alternative.
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.
