The Transit Futur Perfekt

From Defakto -

This is the latest offering from the German brand, and represents a bit of a departure.

The 3 part case measures 40 mm in diameter and is of stainless steel, which is sand blasted and PVD coated. The movement is ETA's 2824-2. But for me the dial and hands are the show stoppers. Each dial is something of a one-off. In their own words:
The special edition of the Defakto Transit Futur Perfekt is limited to 20 pieces. The lacquered, irregular brushed brass dial offers an unusual, three-dimensional effect that vividly reflects the incoming light. Each dial is individual due to the fine scratch pattern applied by hand on the front. Its especial plasticity is created by the covering clear protective varnish. As a last step black indexes were printed on. The concealed back of the dial is highly polished.
