The Pita Windmills (Molinos) Prototype from AHCI Watchmaker Aniceto Jiménez Pita of Barcelona

The Pita Windmills (Molinos) Prototype from AHCI Watchmaker Aniceto Jiménez Pita of BarcelonaI'm honored to be the first watch blog to share the brand new prototype from Pita Barcelona. The Pita Molinos (Windmills) project presents a watch with no hands and no crown. Floating hour and minute gear wheels rotate around the dial to indicate the time. Shown above, the time is 12:15. The finished models should be ready by September-October 2009 and they are already taking reservations at www.pita.es

The Pita Windmills (Molinos) Prototype from AHCI Watchmaker Aniceto Jiménez Pita of BarcelonaI'm already a fan of Pita's undeniably original and minimal one-handed and carousel automatic ball-bearing movement watches. See the rest of his collection here.
