We all forget birthdays and anniversaries from time to time. The Hotblack Anniversary timepiece offers a gentle, personalised reminder. On the top subdial, a pointer indicates a ten-day countdown to all annual events that might slip your mind. Enough time to book a restaurant, buy a card, or a bunch of flowers. Perpetual date is shown on the left sub-dial, and Hoptroff's characteristic rocking seconds in shown on the bottom dial, accurate to an impressive 15 seconds / year.
The Hotblack Anniversary is a classic example of how discreet technology can be used to personalize a timepiece while allowing it to retain its traditional character, creating a treasure you want to live with forever.
Requires an iPhone or Android phone (download the free Hoptroff App from iPhone / Google Play) to set up anniversary dates and to set the time accurately.
In vertical-brushed, black-PVD coated stainless steel with a sapphire crystal, the Hotblack range is waterproof to 5 atmospheres, 15 second/year accuracy and a 5 year battery. The hands and hour digits are coated in superluminova. The calendar is perpetual and automatically adjusts for daylight saving and leap seconds. When you order, be sure to specify if you want the pushers on the right (for right-handed people) or the left (for left-handed people).
