Designed and engineered for the future of space exploration. We are currently developing a next-generation product line that will combine the most advanced technologies in order to meet the harsh requirements of life beyond Earth.
The launch sequence of Monolith provides insights into the development of its key components, their purposes in the context of space exploration, and the transformative technologies involved.
3D Printed Chassis
Weight is one of the key metrics for space exploration. Throughout the development of Monolith we have continually iterated on an ultra-lightweight design, utilizing cutting-edge digital fabrication techniques. The outcome is a fully 3D-printed chassis that is extremely light while maintaining full structural integrity and strength.
Traveling in space poses unique challenges that are not typically considered on Earth, such as extreme temperatures, microgravity, and radiation. During the ongoing development of the Monolith window, we have been exploring a variety of solutions from classic materials all the way to the blurring lines of sci-fi to strike a balance between optical resilience and shatter resistance that matches the requirements of space.
Maintenance and repair work are especially challenging in the context of space exploration. The Monolith caseback is specifically engineered to address these obstacles, utilizing aerospace-grade materials, ISO certified components, and part numbering systems based on NASA standards, ensuring seamless integration and simplified upkeep.
Continuing with the Barrelhand tradition established in Project One, the airlock crown features a vibrant shade of International Orange that is achieved through a Type III anodizing. As the primary point of interaction between an owner and their watch, the crown also raises important questions about the evolving landscape of human-machine harmony in space exploration.
We invite everyone to join this journey - whether you are an astronaut flying to space or someone at home looking towards the dreams and promises of the starry night.
