Minase - Divido
Minase’s flagship model, Divido, is also the brand’s only round watches collection. Its revolutionary approach in terms of design and manufacture brings an effect of depth to the product, achieved thanks to the large number of parts used for both the case and the lugs.
Traditionally manufactured in Japan, Divido timepieces are unique with innovative features such as the « case in case » structure, the extraordinary « Sallaz » polishing technique and the construction principle called « MORE » (Minase Original Rebuild Equation).
The « case in case » structure does not feature a dial in the proper sense of the term. Several elements are building up the heart of each watch: the index ring, the dial plate and the case back are wrapping up the movement and create a separate entity that seems suspended inside the watch. A large cut opening reveals the calendar disc.
Minase belongs to the rare watch brands still working with high-end "Sallaz" polishing. This traditional technique requires up to 50 operations and at least 15 hours of remarkable craftsmanship to complete each watch. The result is admirable: the mirror polished surfaces are perfect and stand in contrast to the satin surfaces.
Finally, the unique MORE approach is inspired by the Japanese jigsaw puzzle art. Unlike common bracelets, there are no pinholes on the links, which yields a compact design and extreme flexibility. Since a large number of parts can be disassembled, repair or replacement is easy allowing the watch to keep its original beauty over the years.
