Axcent Eclipse X6427

Today's watch is huge and has a very retro feel, but is by a modern designer brand.

The watch is by the Swedish company Axcent of Scandinavia, and is called the Eclipse. Axcent have been bringing Nordic design to the watch market since the late 90s. The are one of the modern brands with interesting designs, and have the motto 'when art becomes a timepiece without costing a fortune'.

It uses a style that wasn't seen very much after the 80s and early 90s which is an LCD dial. The LCD dial is a 2 hand dial, with the hours hand in a central ring, and the minutes hand just around the edge. The case has the tonneau shape, with the round dial in the middle.

This version is a dark red design, and is completed with a wide red leather strap.

The design was done by Daniel Jakobsson who was the brand/product manager and head designer for Axcent for the period 2002 to 2009. From the watches I have from this period so far, it seems like all of the designs were by him in that time period.

The model number is X6427, and from the original cardboard label, the full number for this colour variation may be X64271-838.
