The two models in question are the time-only HMS and the Bi-Compax chronograph. Both dials have been elegantly painted in a salmon shade harkening back to the ’40s, with its sector design informed by the ’20s and ’30s. With an innovative touch, the two companies don’t stop there: they’ve also incorporated both the railroad and crosshair patterns on the dial, coming in the form of a seconds track on the outer rim and a cross in the inner section respectively. Of course, on the chronograph, we also find two subdials on the three and nine o’clock positions indicating seconds and minutes, done in a clean aesthetic thanks to the absence of Roman numerals. For those with an eye for detail, you’ll also notice that its various sections have been distinguished by its texture, the outer track and inner circle carrying a matted grainy surface while the hour track comes with a brushed metallic look. Finishing the vintage style of the two pieces is the 38mm case — a size perfect for any wrist — as well as a period-correct domed acrylic crystal.
Limited to just 100 pieces each, worn&wound and Baltic’s salmon dialed HMS and Bi-Compax will be available soon, retailing for $400 USD and $625 USD respectively. Those interested can head over to Windup Watch Shop to be notified when they launch.
