The HM5 pays direct homage the Amida Digitrend watch, a driver's style watch designed for the convenience of reading time on the steering wheel. Inspired by supercars from the 1970s as well, the present HM5 offers a streamline case decorated by louvres and exhaust pipes. It tells time by the jumping hours and trailing minutes, reflected to the dial with an intriguing sapphire crystal prism. Futuristic yet nostalgic, the present HM5 is a marriage between modern watchmaking and classic driving.
