   Ini Archibong came up with a progressive arrangement of numbers. Starting from the largest number ‘6’ in the center of the lower part, the number gradually shrinks and extends upwards to create a wonderful perspective of the space. The contours of the watch’s edges focus on perfect movement. The last naughty and interesting finishing touch is that the crown placed at six o’clock creates a symmetrical and balanced effect for the whole.
