Nadir STEEL Watch
Nadir is the deepest point on a celestial sphere directly beneath a surface position. It indicates the profoundest depth which lies below. The Nadir STEEL Watch never strays from the symbolic “core” of time itself.

Nadir STEEL Watch
Designer: Damian Barton
The Nadir Steel Watch points in the right direction.
Nadir is the deepest point on a celestial sphere directly beneath a surface position. It indicates the profoundest depth which lies below. The STEEL Nadir watch never strays from the symbolic “core” of time itself. The varied thickness of arrows on the tips of hour, minute and second hands pinpoint the cycle of time on the dial centered underneath the lens. Time is the Nadir.
The STEEL Nadir Watch was initially an all black timepiece with both white numerals and white hands (arrows). Now new for 2016 is Nadir STEEL in all stainless steel with a black leather band. Telling time could not be easier. The arrow points to the time! As with a “traditional” watch, the smallest hand is the hour hand, followed by the next longer hand or the minute hand and finally the longest hand which is the second hand.
STEEL Nadir is a unisex watch measuring 40mm (1.57") in diameter and 8.8mm (0.35") high. It is made of a silver brushed stainless steel and comes with a 20mm (3/4") black leather band. Or if you wish, just order an extra silicone band at the time of purchase. Our exclusive stainless steel mesh band also fits the Nadir. All bands can be found under BANDS at the top of the page.
Also available is BLACK Nadir; a black IP stainless steel case with black leather band.
