Minase Create ‘Horizon GEN Black DLC’ Limited Edition

Minase Create ‘Horizon GEN Black DLC’ Limited Edition

Minase have launched their latest limited series of 25 pieces, the Horizon GEN DLC.

In Japanese, GEN is spelled with the kanji character 玄, which offers several meanings such as depth, darkness, mystery or the colour black. These terms perfectly describe the new limited series, a Horizon clad in deep brushed and glossy black DLC (Diamond like Carbon).

The case, crown, indexes and buckle are DLC-coated. This treatment enhances the hardness of 316L steel by depositing fine layers of carbon on its various components. In addition to its attractive and mysterious appearance, this coating is distinguished by its durability and high resistance to corrosion and wear. The DLC treatment is offering greater resistance to scratches.

The Horizon GEN DLC watch has a hardness of HV2300, much harder than steel. Combined with the ‘Sallaz’ surface treatment, the polished areas shine in dark tones, bringing undeniable class to the timepiece.

Minase timepieces bear the registered label ‘HiZ’, a concept inspired by the Japanese words ‘Hizu‘ (exceptional) and ‘Hi Izuru Kuni’ (Land of the Rising Sun). The products labelled ‘HiZ’ share three distinctive features: the ‘case in case’ structure, the rare ‘Sallaz’ polishing technique and the construction principle called ‘MORE’ (Minase Original Rebuild Equation).
