“The Da Vinci Code” which is based on a secret code hidden in an art painting for over 2000 years. Such topic has been written as novel as well as made into movie over the years. Interesting though is that “The Da Vinci Code” is, of course, fiction but readers were told that all descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents, and secret rituals in this novel are accurate, causing millions of readers to wonder how much they really know about “The Da Vinci Code”.
BEHRENS – B023 automatic wristwatch has been designed base on “The Da Vinci Code” as a theme. From which the key element of this mechanical wristwatch is to imply the secret code into our design of the mechanism.
B023 – “The Da Vince Code” is constructed base on a Swiss automatic movement as the power source, from which we have applied and installed a mechanical module which we have completely developed in-house to provide a satellite time display function. This satellite mechanical module is featuring with a 3-discs system that self-rotates every hour while the whole system rotates in orbit format around the center at 3 hours per revolution. Unlike ordinary satellite system, this time we have hidden most of the numbers for the hours indications just like how “The Da Vince Code” has been hidden. To do so, special luminous plates were installed underneath certain locations so that only 3 numbers of the hours’ indications can be seen. Functionally, we have also added a “Date” display function at 2:30 position of the dial. Besides, the dial design has also added with the elements of “The Da Vinci Code” with secret pattern yet to be explored and discovered.
Besides, for the 1st time, B023 will also feature with our newly designed and patented metal bracelet. What makes this bracelet special is that our engineering team has developed a push-button system for adjusting the length of the bracelet, meaning the bracelet length adjust can be proceeded without the need of any tools.
Furthermore, to match the theme of “The Da Vinci Code”, we have also designed a special storage boxset that can only be opened with a secret code.
