“This watch takes a holistic approach to design, signifying a new interpretation of a classic masterpiece. Appealing sensory details such as a visible movement and a tactile crown winder will delight the user, while the curved face lends a softness to the appearance. Michael Young has succeeded in imparting this watch with a unique experience.”
iF Jury statement
Unique design, distinct personality
A design that can stand the test of time does not follow the wave of others. Exclusively designed by Michael Young, the award-winning MY Series is internationally recognised as a mechanical work of art.
A customised SEAGULL automatic movement means it is your drive that powers our watches. Kinetic energy is harnessed from your activities and used to power the mechanical movement. With a power reserve of up to 40 hours, the watch can be left at rest and continue to function.
“The objects we are willing to wear are an external reflection of our inner state.”
Flawless 316L surgical steel casing
Forged from 316L stainless steel ensures life-long durability and superior strength. Utilising surgical-grade materials means you can be assured of sustained quality year after year.
Artificial Sapphire Crystal
Made from 1.3mm artificial sapphire, the mirror is extremely resistant to abrasion and scratches and is the material we use on all of our watch faces. Second only in hardness to diamond, the mirror can withstand a lifetime of use and remain looking immaculate.
25 Jewelled Movement
Jewel bearings are used in mechanical watch movements where low friction, long life, and accuracy are of vital importance. Every wheel in all our watches is supported by jewels classing them ‘fully jewelled’ movements.
