Description

The design of Mr Roboto is inspired by the Lantern Robot of the 1950s. Azimuth's designers show that a timepiece's practical functionality does not have to take a back seat to aesthetic visual designs. Witness the perfect marriage of ingenious design and user-friendly functions, this good-looker is set to be a head-turner at this year's Baselworld 09. A unique timepiece that transcends time, Mr Roboto aims to revive the passion of the tin robot generation of enthusiasts and enduring science fiction lovers.

Mr Roboto's visual appeal embodies the full-flavor revival of vintage tin robotic spaceman. The placements lend for easy reading and a radical tin robot visual appearance. The left ‘eye' is the hour register, right ‘eye' comes with GMT indication, the nose region joint with the mouth region are the seconds and retrograde minutes placements respectively. Mr Roboto is powered by a modified ETA 2836-2 movement. The robust case is forged out of hardy steel blocks with a warm touch of beveled edges at the sides of the tonneau shaped timepiece.

It comes with a unique box inspired by the whimsical designs of the tin toy packaging during the 1950s.
