Entry Description

DWISS RW1 is a automatic Swiss made watch using an wandering hour display. This concept of display was first created in the XVII century by the Campanus brothers for Pope Alexander XII. It consists of an arm with discs at the ends that rotate and show the current hour and point to the minutes along the arc-shaped track.

DWISS uses this display with super-luminova applied to the numbers so you can see the hours in the dark, the movement and the wandering hour module are inside a watch case made out of 316L stainless steel with double domed sapphire crystal and water resistant to 20 ATM.


DWISS (Design Watch Independent Switzerland) is a multi design awarded Swiss brand of authentic and unique Swiss made timepieces, innovating how time is displayed, pioneering the use of new materials, and revolutionizing sales channels.

Its watches deviate from tradition by showcasing the time in formats never explored before, making each watch instantly memorable and iconic. They are all limited edition luxury watches with the highest-grade Swiss mechanical movements and craftsmanship.
