Jiro Katayama’s watchmaking prowess takes center stage with the reintroduction of the Otsuka Lotec No. 6 Watch, an absolute game-changer in the world of timepieces. This updated model effortlessly blends classic aesthetics with modern functionality, featuring a unique fan-shaped dial boasting a retrograde display. The hours and minutes align parallel to each other, while the hands converge at 6 o’clock for a visually striking effect. The innovative in-house MIYOTA 9015 movement, seamlessly attached to the dial with screws, not only enhances precision but also aligns the dial and bezel, resulting in a sleek and streamlined appearance.
But that’s not all – Katayama doesn’t stop at aesthetics. The Otsuka Lotec No. 6 undergoes a material upgrade, transitioning from SUS303 to SUS316L for the case and upgrading from mineral to sapphire crystal for the glass. These refinements not only enhance durability but also underscore the brand’s commitment to quality craftsmanship. Set to hit the Japanese market exclusively in January, the No. 6 is a testament to Jiro Katayama’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of watch design, making it a must-have for enthusiasts who appreciate both style and substance.
