Entry Description

DWISS R2 is a Swiss made watch with the unique “floating hours”, instead of a hour hand it uses a sapphire crystal disc to show the hours. Like an invisible hand, all you can see in the display is a floating triangle that points to the hours, filled with Super-LumiNova BG-W9 to help see the time in the dark.

The design inspirations comes from a formula one and an egg, called “Ovetto”(that in Italian means egg), a Rolex watch created in 1923 served as an idea to make a very slim case with an automatic movement. We used the same concept: using a bubble caseback to fit an automatic movement


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.
