The Life Circle Timepiece.
The Karma concept forms the basis of today’s third and fourth largest world religion or world view *. Taken together, this is the second largest religious community on earth.
Karma is the consequence of every act, the effects of actions and thoughts, especially the repercussions on the actor himself. Karma arises through a lawfulness and not because of judgment by a judge of the world or God. Karma does not cause Divine Grace or Punishment. Not only “good” karma affects the cycle of life, but equally the “bad”.
The concept of life, to achieve a good or balanced karma, is now also established in the Western world. In particular, recent sustainability movements are in line with the Karma concept and are now growing rapidly worldwide.
The KronSegler automatic watch series “Karma” is entirely dedicated to this popular, sustainability-oriented way of thinking and living.
The technical concept of the watch is not complicated; rather functional and simple. The watch is purely mechanical and therefore sustainably powered without battery. It displays hours, minutes, seconds and the date. The beauty and the effect of the watch are created by the elaborate design elements which originate from the language of form of the karma representation.
With its size of 39.5 mm in diameter and a thickness of 10 mm the “Karma” is designed for women and men equally. 8 different colour combinations offer room for fashionable or classic taste. The optical highlight of the watch is the dial that is characterized by a beautiful relief. It represents the tree of life (Bodhi tree or “tree of enlightenment” or “Buddha tree **”) in a matt pearl silver surface. Blued ornamental hands fit in perfectly. Symbols of triskels (signs of birth, life and death or body, mind and soul or past, present and future) and the infinity knot decorate the dial and the rotor of the watch. The indices 1 – 12 are based the Indian Sanskrit.
The high quality watch is available in 8 colours with a steel or two-layered gold-plated case. The flat case has a brushed body and a polished bezel which creates a very nice light reflection. The watch glass is a sapphire crystal with maximum scratch resistance.
The watch is powered by the automatic movement K029.024 (CITIZEN base), which is a 24-ruby “fast beat movement” with a frequency of 28.800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). The extremely flat movement is equipped with a modified date display at the 3 o’clock position. The date is framed and larger than usual.
The leather straps in different colours are padded, alligator embossed and provided with a KronSegler coat of arms button and a folding clasp with safety double pushers. In the steel version, a model with a fine Milanaise steel strip in 2.5 mm thickness in total and 0.8 mm fabric thickness is available.
The “Karma” is delivered in a dark green exclusive box with a certificate, a 16-page booklet with an instruction manual and a polishing cloth.
