The new TECHNOGRAPH Hide & Seek has acquired a complex system to show the time on rotating disks, so making the time display still more original.
A new way of showing the time
The hands of the half moon-shaped counters have been replaced by fine disks mounted flush with the lower dial. Each of these disks has two different colours. Each disk comprises two opposing arrows, one facing outwards and the other inwards; a perfect division of the disk into two parts between the colours is obtained in this way. Paul Picot has successfully risen to the challenge and preserved the identity of the TECHNOGRAPH, while taking a subtle step forwards thanks to a superb technical prowess.
The first 30 seconds of real time now unfurl in red, with the arrow facing inwards pointing to the numerals from 0 to 30 engraved on the lower dial. The second disk arrow, this time facing outwards, then takes over for the next 30 seconds, this time in black. The same principle is followed for the chronograph minutes: the first 15 minutes are shown in red by means of the arrow facing outwards on the disk and the next 15 in black with the arrow pointing inwards. With its highly complex design, this new system for showing the time makes the counters extremely easy to read. Paul Picot has placed its watchmaking expertise at the service of connoisseurs.
Last but not least, the originality of this dial culminates in a patented system (Quanticolor) for date display in the window in which the day's date is always highlighted in red, while the previous and following days are displayed in grey.
