NEW RELEASE

NAOYA HIDA & Co.

NH TYPE 1D

OVERVIEW

The NH TYPE1D is the fourth in the TYPE1 series, the first model launched by NAOYA HIDA & Co. The concept of producing beautiful watches that pursue a sculptural three-dimensional effect in every detail, including the dial and hands, by combining state-of-the-art ultra-high-precision micro-fabrication machines and the manual work of skilled craftsmen, has not changed. The biggest difference between the NH TYPE1D and the previous the NH TYPE1C is that the case has been redesigned and the caseback has been changed to a screw-back system.

FEATURES

This model is manufactured as an addition to the NH TYPE 1C, of which a total of 30 pcs were manufactured and sold out in 2020-2021.
In 2022, 20pcs will be manufactured.
Compared to the NH TYPE 1C, the following changes have been made.

  • The case back has changed from a snap back to a screw case back
  • The lateral shape of the lugs has been changed
  • The seconds scale on the small seconds circle at 9 o'clock is now a separate component (the prototype in the photo is still unchanged)
  • Supplier and material of the leather strap supplied as standard changed.

The following features have remained unchanged.

The design is based on vintage watches from the 1930s and 1950s, but with a modern and practical case diameter of 37 mm. (Vintage watches generally come in sizes smaller than 35 mm.)

We worked with a company that introduced a machine manufactured by Roku Roku Sangyo, a manufacturer of ultra-high-precision micro-machining machines.
As a result, they succeeded in crafting difficult-to-machine materials to an accuracy of a few microns and in three dimensions.

The manual-winding movement Ca.3019SS, which incorporates a newly developed click mechanism in the base movement, the ETA Valjoux 7750, allows the wearer to enjoy the feel of winding the watch.

The Breguet Arabic indexes on the dial are entirely hand-engraved by skilled craftsmen. Synthetic lacquer (cashew) is then poured over them to give them a unique finish.

The watch is made of SUS 904L stainless steel, which is known for its high corrosion resistance but is difficult to process and is therefore only used by a very limited number of manufacturers.
