A new shape for a wristwatch
The rounded pentagon, a rare form of elegance, has not yet been explored in watchmaking.
This harmonious shape, inspired by the hand’s five fingers, is a homage paid to the manual operations requisite to making a quality watch.
Over 80% of the materials for our Mina watches are produced in Geneva by companies renowned for their expertise in manufacturing high-quality watchmaking parts.
