The 4N mechanical digital watch uses 3 sets of discs with numbers that rotate to tell the time. French company 4N derives its name from the “four numbers” on a digital counter which represent the time and this is their first watch. The company was setup by François Quentin who is co-founder of Hautlence
Unlike the design of the watch the model is called 4N-MVT01/D01/42 not exactly catchy, and it uses aluminium, titanium and carbon fibre in its construction.
The movement is in-house made and manually wound, the hours and minutes are to be jumping hours and minutes.
Only 16 will be made.
