Gravithin Unveils Focuscope: A Celestial Tribute to Galileo’s Vision

In a nod to the visionary spirit of Galileo Galilei, Gravithin has unveiled the Focuscope, a timepiece that encapsulates the essence of exploration and innovation. Drawing inspiration from Galilei’s revolutionary telescope, the watch marries aesthetics with material ingenuity, creating a unique and compelling timekeeping experience.

The intricate dial of the Gravithin Focuscope is a testament to the brand’s commitment to craftsmanship. Five layers, blending copper, steel, and a central piece of meteorite, converge to form a dial that is both visually captivating and historically resonant. The stepped design, featuring a mix of brushed, polished, and sandblasted surfaces, creates a sense of depth reminiscent of the telescopic lenses that opened new frontiers over four centuries ago.

At the heart of the dial, a genuine piece of meteorite serves as a focal point, adding a touch of celestial wonder to the timepiece. Meteorite dials, often associated with high-end watches, make a rare appearance in a timepiece that comes with an unexpectedly accessible price tag – a fact that enhances the allure of the Gravithin Focuscope.

Practicality meets aesthetics with six layers of Super-LumiNova BGW9, ensuring legibility even in low-light conditions. While this luminosity adds a modern touch, the juxtaposition with the meteorite dial pays homage to the timeless allure of stargazing.

The Gravithin Focuscope offers a choice of three dial colors – Cosmo Red, Cosmo Blue, and Cosmo Silver. Paired with either a black sandblasted case for the first two options or a gunmetal case for the third, the 40mm case stands at a modest 11.2mm thickness. The sandblasted finish, whether in silver or gunmetal grey, contributes to a sleek and distinctive appearance rarely seen in the watch market.

The telescopic inspiration extends to the side profile, where machined rings echo the layers of the dial, creating a visually arresting effect. The 70s-inspired single-link bracelet, attached seamlessly to the case, exudes a clean aesthetic reminiscent of iconic designs like the Girard-Perregaux Casquette or the DeLorean DMC-12.

Powering the Gravithin Focuscope is the reliable Miyota 9039, a slim automatic caliber that allows the case to maintain its svelte proportions. The hacking seconds mechanism and a commendable 42-hour power reserve ensure precision during extended periods of stargazing or daily wear.

Available for pre-order on the Gravithin website, the Focuscope comes with an enticing limited-time promotion – a €150 discount, an additional grey leather strap, and free worldwide shipping. Priced at €549 (€399 with the pre-order promo). Deliveries scheduled for June 2024.
