A simple digital display powered by a mechanical movement. This was the idea behind the creation of the 4N: to go beyond typical analog mechanical timepieces with moving hands.
The brand draws its name from the four digits found on the digital “face” of the watch, indicating the time. 4N = 4 numbers. Not merely telling the time, but actually revealing it by the use of its unique 4-digit display, the watch relays time’s rhythmic movement.
Resolutely masculine, and unapologetically high-tech, the 4N houses a complex mechansim which becomes easily understandable thanks to its legibility. 4N has mastered time with a modern concept housing a mechanical heart - looking forward while still paying homage to the time-honored basics of watch making.
