The concept of Purity of Purpose is epitomized by the mono-pusher featured in the MP45 wristwatch. This unique timepiece simplifies the act of timekeeping with a single button that seamlessly handles start, stop, and reset functions.

This ingenious design allows the wearer to remain fully immersed in their current task.
MP45 was originally conceived towards the end of WW2 its purpose was nothing short of remarkable - defusing unexploded enemy ordnance.

It was a crucial tool in the hands of brave individuals facing imminent danger. Today, its capabilities extend beyond the battlefield as it stands ready to serve in civilian capacities.

The heart of the MP45 lies in its use of a bespoke version of Selitta's SW510MP movement, a testament to precision and reliability. It is available in two distinct versions, catering to both those who appreciate the convenience of automatic movement and those who prefer the control of manual winding.

The watch's dial is a testament to excellence, featuring our world-class Moulded Superluminova technology. This ensures that the time remains effortlessly readable, whether in the darkest of environments or the brightest of days.
