Mercedes 320 tourbillon watch was design as tribute to Mercedes-Benz type 320, firstly introduced in mid-1937. This car was special because it was given an independent front and rear suspension, with coil springs at all four corners. This gave the car impressive road manners while keeping the passengers comfortable.
This watch was born from the necessity of creating purely car oriented watch. The main goal of this watch is to show the obvious resemblance with the Mercedes car brand pointing out elegancy above all. Highly precision and attention to details refers to ‘German precision’.
The overall Mercedes 320 tourbillon watch design was inspired by the instrument cluster, so with that spirit in mind, the routine of reading the time has been broken. The hours and minutes are shown as miles (kilometers) in a racing scale, expressing the ‘car feeling’. The main impact was made by a tourbillon with the shape of a Mercedes logo, clearly pointing the brand identity.

The concept Mint Seal has restored the security issues that personal or corporate seals have lost these days. This concept has been designed with a locking case for the seal side and a combination lock at the other end to unlock and print the seal. There is a red dot on the body of the seal which is the level where the secret numerical combination should be aligned. After setting up with the password, turn the knob 180 degrees to come out the seal from the casing. After finishing with printing the seal, turn back the knob and disarrange your security number. Just simple, isn’t it?
