The watch is named for Mr. Eugen Hintz, one of the most respected Transylvanian watchmakers having partnerships with famous brands such as Tellus, Wyler and Junghans where he would commission spare parts to create Watches in his workshop in Fagaras, Transylvania after returning from the United States.

Because Peren Hintz is an homage brought to one of Transylvania’s most important watchmaker, a rotating disk inspired by the ‘Andesite Sun’ found next to one of the most precise ancient calendar located in Transylvania, is positioned at the 6H Watch subdial. The integration of the Solar Disk into the Peren Hintz Watch is meant to emphasize the continuity of the perennial philosophy from ancient Transylvania to the present time. The disk is the exact representation of the 'Andesite Sun' from the Transylvanian based Sarmizegetusa Regia site, converted from meters to millimeters. The 'Andesite Sun' from Sarmizegetusa Regia, was one of the first solar-cycle measurement tool which served also as an altar for the so called solar cult.

Interesting...hmm I think that disk would have to be very well made to make it look good in this context, otherwise there is a big risk of it looking cheap. I know I sound like a broken record but here is another watch that would look better in 38mm (or 40mm for you bigger-wristers) :) I guess if they want the Unitas then there isn't much room to maneuver, literally.

Maybe I should change my username to Broken Record.

Getting a Nomos Club vibe, which isn't a bad thing. The design is very clean. I kind of wish the disk had like one line colored to match the ring and indices so you could use it as a second hand. The disc is cool but it's not particularly useful.

I put it in my signature so I didn't have to type it every time I posted. :lol:

One of the reasons I jumped on that Zeno handwinder I picked up.
A 40mm with a Unitas is a rare beast.
