In a true step toward innovation in the watchmaking industry, the TACS Automatic Vintage Lens design watch takes its cues from the beautiful details of a camera lens. Boasting great readability and a reliable, automatic movement, this watch comes together beautifully with a strong leather strap that offsets the style of the dial. It comes complete with aperture indices and a rotating bezel that speaks to a vintage rangefinder camera, drawing inspiration from the real world.
TACS watches are inspired by an idea from the mind of the Japanese designer Yoshiaki Motegi who believes that everyone should spend their lives living in the moment and making the most of their surroundings. He takes this belief into account when designing his watches, using daily elements of everyday life and displaying them in a stripped down, minimalist way. It is through these styles that Motegi believes you can be who you are as a unique individual by incorporating bits of your everyday life into who you are and what you wear.
Living in the moment means taking time to smell the roses and taking in as much of life as you can. A camera allows you to do just that, capturing precious moments you want to remember forever. In lieu of this, the Automatic Vintage Lens watch was created as a reminder of this concept as well as just being a beautiful timepiece. The sapphire crystal watch face resembles that of a fisheye lens on a camera and easily shows off the custom, gold-plated Miyota 8250 movement. With Miyota 8250 rivaling the excellence of a Swiss movement, the see through back allows you to view the spectacular, gold-plated movement with ease. This watch is designed to bring out the artsy eye and photographer in everyone; to remind you to live in the moment and make as many memories as you can.
The sapphire crystal watch face covers the 47mm watch with a vegetable tanned leather strap that is 27mm to offset the size of the gold-plated casing. A skeleton back and a rotatable black IP stainless steel bezel makes this watch a true work of functional art, capable of 10 ATM water resistance. The reliable Miyota 8250 movement is the core of this masterpiece and boasts a battery power reserve of up to 40 hours.
This incredibly accurate and stunning watch is the perfect accessory for anyone with an affinity for art and photography, as it is inspired by both. An exceptional example of both form and function, the TACS Automatic Vintage Lens watch boasts minimalist beauty that is both classic and forward thinking all at once to bring you the best of both worlds.
