The Inception Prodigy collection builds on Lytt Labs’ seminal timepiece creation, the Inception V1 with its original, contemporary cushion-shaped case.
The latest Inception Prodigy timepiece bolsters Lytt Labs’ design DNA with a fresh dial and bold new approach to telling time. An entirely new hour and minute handset design was created, and further topped with a novel disc-style seconds hand. Seconds can be measured either via the arrow on the disc-based hand or through a small window to a numeric indicator track which is printed underneath the seconds hand disc. Meticulous attention to detail has been paid to the individually stamped hour numbers and hand-painted luminescent paint on the dials and hands.
Thematically, Lytt Labs drew creative influence from contemporary public fountains which decorate the urban landscape. Public fountains have been central gathering spots in major city centers for well over 1000 years. The role of public fountains today is to add thoughtful tranquility and sense of escape from what some might consider the “urban grind.” Similarly, the Inception Prodigy was designed to be both useful and and to offer a welcome mental escape when the wear glances at the dial.
On the wrist the Lytt Labs Inception Prodigy watch is a 45mm wide square that wears sensibly due to the integrated silicone strap system. The 316L stainless steel case is water resistant to 50 meters and topped with an anti-reflecting coating-applied sapphire crystal. Inside the watch is a Japanese-produced Seiko caliber NH35 automatic mechanical movement.
