Gnomon, niobium blue dial (45mm)

$785.00
approx. USD $ 600.53

This large-sized watch has a stainless steel case and a handcrafted niobium dial. Niobium is an elemental metal (atomic number 41) and has interesting colouring properties. To achieve the colour on these dials I run an electric current through the metal and depending on what voltage I use, the metal turns different colours. This process is called anodizing.
