This new Epos Heure Sautante is the first Epos in a while that has intrigued me. The majority of their line kind of disappears into the woodwork due to their somewhat uninspired designs. This one has a great look, with a cool sunken date wheel. I like it.
EPOS – 3405 Heure Sautante
The 3405 Jumping Hours from Epos is an incomparable work of art. The time is displayed through a large off-centre window at 3 o’clock, a world first, while the date is displayed below the dial in a highly original round, recessed window. An instantly-identifiable, unconventional creation. The Côtes de Genève decoration on the dial adds the finishing touch to this remarkable work of precision.
