Angular Momentum Verre Eglomise Green Humming Bird Watch
From their popular Artisan collection comes this new Angular Momentum Verre Eglomise "Little Green Humming Bird" timepiece. It features a beautiful reverse painted green humming bird applied on the back of the sapphire crystal with a special enamel pain. Extremely hard to do, this hand-painted creation looks amazingly life-like. Angular Momentum often releases pieces like this and each amazes me. The idea of wearing a small painting on your wrist is probably strange to most people, but In my opinion it is a tasteful endeavor.
Angular Momentum uses their newly developed two-part 12 sided dodecagon case, that here is 39mm wide in Staybrite steel. The interesting design uses a formal style crown with an onyx cabochon. Inside the watch is a Swiss automatic movement that uses a single revolving disc to tell the time in the open window. Angular Momentum has refined this time telling format by adding a small indicator hand that allows for more precise reading of the time.
Is the watch for men or women? Not really sure. At 39mm wide it is sort of in that unisex gray area. I say if you like it, contact Angular Momentum and see how they can make one to your specific specifications.
