OUR MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY
Unique is simple
automatic twin lens lifestyle fashion watch
From War to Art
First released in the late 1920s, twin-lens cameras were widely used by photojournalists and correspondents to document World War II in Europe thanks to its robust and periscopic design. It was said that the inventor came up with the idea for the camera during World War I on a trench while peeping through a periscope.
Modern Silver features a silver-toned dial design resembling the original vintage twin-lens camera. Completed with a stainless steel case and skeleton movement, the twin-lens timepiece is paired with a brown raw-edge HORWEEN leather strap for a sleek contemporary take. Subtle yet unique, this classic silver and brown pairing is sleek and highly wearable, making Modern Silver the perfect timepiece to go with your everyday look.
TACS takes every distinctive aspect of the vintage camera into consideration throughout the design process, after two years of research and development, the new Automatic Twin Lens is the result of a seamless and thoughtful integration.
Inside and Out
The distinct multi-layer twin lens dial consists of 19 individual parts, and each one is hand-assembled by a TACS watchmaker in Japan. To ensure every single part is put together with the highest level of craftsmanship and precision possible, there is a limit of 10 timepieces a watchmaker can assemble daily.
Peeking through the transparent twin lens reveals a 21-jewel, skeletonized Miyota 8N24 automatic movement, also handmade in Japan, rendering the timepiece a power reserve of 42 hours and a creation that is synonymous with Japanese craftsmanship inside and out.
Optimal Wearing Comfort
The new Automatic Twin Lens is 20% lighter than its predecessor Automatic Vintage Lens II, a thoughtful upgrade for optimal wearing comfort without compromising the aesthetic and performance of the timepiece. The leather strap, made with 24mm HORWEEN leather and stainless steel buckles, is tapered down to 22mm for a more balanced and sophisticated look with the 46.5mm case.
will never be outdated
A stylish yet practical timepiece for everyday life. ATL features 3 luminous hands and is powered by Miyota 8N24 automatic skeleton movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. The timepiece also is water-resistant to 100 metres (10 bar).
