THE MOTOSCAPHE 120

THE WATCH

The Alsta Motoscaphe was designed for motorcyclists and first appeared in 2021. It has a bi-directional ratchet bezel which allows for swift and safe setting with gloves at speed.Its 12-hour GMT timing scale allows riders to track elapsed hours, minutes (just multiply by 5), and/or a second time zone when travelling.
The destro (left side of the case) crown never digs into a rider's wrist when worn on the left wrist which most people do.
The Motoscaphe has no date as most motorcyclists don’t want to be reminded that Monday is approaching!

It is shock resistant and waterproof which it needs to be to withstand being knocked around and exposed to the elements.

The dial playfully reinterprets the common dive watch depth rating into an equation for speed. 176ft = 53.6m / sec. It has been said that 120mph on a bike often triggers spiritual experiences. Space curves, time collapses, and the mind quiets.
"That's when the strange music begins…" - Hunter S. Thompson
The Motoscaphe is manufactured and assembled in Switzerland and the UK and the movement is supplied by Seiko of Japan.
