Carpenter Watches and Michael DiTullo have unveiled the M18 Field Watch. Limited to a numbered production run of 12, the M18 puts a minimalist twist on the Field Watch.
The face is inspired by classic Modernist clocks form the 1960's, reducing the dial down to 12 high visibility hour indices. Outside the hour ring are subtle tonal second markers. Gloss black hour and minute hands are capped with C3 Lume accents.
A Pantone 021c orange second hand is the only loud moment on the face. The 40mm case is machined from 316L stainless steel polished to a high gloss and with a double domed sapphire crystal. The curves of the case are particularly elegant with lugs that pay homage to classic wire lugs. The exhibition case back exposes the Miyota 821A 21 jewel automatic movement with a floating MD logo. The micro-perefed matte black leather band was inspired by vintage leather steering wheels found in classic sports cars.
