Azimuth's offering a Watchismo worthy watch, their self described "Man Toy" or more
officially named "Chrono Guage Mecha BMF". T
he case is forged
out of hardy 316L solid steel blocks, CNC cut into signature tonneau
shapes in no less than 80 arduous steps. It is a tribute to all men with a thirst for all things fast and furious.
(pronounced Air-Zi-Muth) starts with a thought; a contemplation of our
place on this planet. A mathematical term which defines the arc of a
horizon from a reference point, it is a mode of measurement used by
astrologers, navigators and military men to survey their bearings. But
Azimuth represents a cerebral pursuit - a reflection of Time and Space
as determined by the word's Arabic roots, which translates to mean
"route taken by a traveler". It is through this synergy of science and
philosophy that the Azimuth collection is conceived.

The latest of
the Chrono Gauge Mecha-1 BMF series. Can't afford a $250,000 Richard
MIlle, you might consider this more affordable swiss made wristular dashboard chronograph
with an arching direct jump hour display powered by a modified Valjoux
7750 automatic movement.
Chrono Gauge Mecha -1 takes the BMF collection’s racecar allusions a
step future with its time interval measuring properties. Inspired by the
speedometers of race machines, its three totalizers at 3, 6, and 9
o’clock are fashioned after registers on racecar dashboards. Set
against the BMF collection’s signature tonneau-shaped case, the top half
of the dial features a steering wheel-like arched window display with a
rotating disc beneath for direct hour and minute read-offs. At the
bottom half, four sub-dials (seconds, chronograph seconds, chronograph
minutes, and chronograph hours) are presented in a T-shaped layout that
recalls racecar registers. Further reinforcing the BMF identity are the
two chronograph actuators and knurled crown at the case side, each
etched with an individual ‘B’, ‘M’ and ‘F’.
