Founded in 1896, the famous watch brand Mira borrowed its name from the star, which was discovered in 1596 by David Fabricus, an amateur Dutch astronomer. Later on, in 1662, Johannes Hevelius called the star Mira, meaning "wonderful".
In the 1940’s, the eponymous watch manufacture earned its fame by introducing a two-way rotor into the world of horology.
Now, the company is extremely pleased to unveil its new Space Sensation watch. This horological novelty is encouraged by the syzygy, the alignment of celestial bodies found on the same gravitational axis.
The marvelous Mira watch is designed around a reliable self-winding movement. It provides the useful functions of indicating hours, retrograde minutes and seconds.
The mechanism is enclosed in a polished and satin-finished stainless steel case, which measures 42 mm in diameter. It is fitted with a crown, exposing a diamond cabochon. On the front side the case is armed with a glareproofed convex sapphire crystal. Its back side, meanwhile, is artfully engraved by the brand’s qualified craftsmen. The water-resistance of the case is down to 50 meters.
The Mira Space Sensation watch is adorned with an intriguing black or opaline guilloche dial. It proudly shows off retrograde minutes in the lower part, a small seconds display right in the center, and an hour display in the upper part against a blue aventurine or white mother-of-pearl background.
The final touch is provided by a black crocodile leather strap finished with a safety folding clasp.
