Tender's 'Hands-On' mechanical watch is cased in England with a hand-wound Swiss movement. It is set on a custom made English oak bark tanned leather NATO style one-piece strap with a solid English cast brass buckle.
The Hands-On function is taken from early Twentieth Century drivers' watches- the dial is rotated by 45° to make the watch easily readable without taking your hands off the wheel of a car. The 'Everest' dial has numerals at 12, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 o'clock, with Tender's Plautus brand at 12 o'clock. The minute register is represented by Tender's signature train track, with heavier sleepers marking the hours. The entire set of marking on the dial are luminous. Pencil hours and minutes hands are steel with luminous fill, and there is a sweep centre seconds hand. The dial is protected by an extra-high domed acrylic crystal.
The movement is visible through an exhibition case back. The case itself is milled from solid stainless steel, with a push-down steel crown at 1.30. Please note that this watch is cased by hand and is not water proof- it should be taken off before any contact with water.
