The Fried Eggs watch adopts a dial layout from a British compass used by the Ordnance Survey, the national mapping agency founded in 1791 and responsible for a significant mapping effort of Europe in the First and Second World Wars.
Compass points are replaced with large numbers at 12, 3, 6, and 9, with dashes marking the half-hours. The un-numbered hours are depicted by "fried eggs," with the thick yolk paint paying homage to early 1960s renditions of Universal Genève’s Polerouter Submariner watches. The watch is finished with linear brushing on the sides, radial brushing on the back, and mirror polishing on the bezel.
