A careful inspection of the Inception Prodigy dial reveals a meticulous attention to detail and originality. Traditional-style hands replace the seminal Inception Version 1’s disc-based time display system. An entirely new hour and minute hand set design was created for the Inception Prodigy; these are further topped with a novel disc-style seconds hand. This latter element evokes and builds upon the original Inception model with its disc hand system. Seconds can be measured either via the arrow on the disc-based hand or through a small window to a numeric indicator track, which is printed underneath the seconds hand disc. Lytt Labs takes particular pride in the meticulous attention to detail with which the strips of luminous paint have been applied to the Inception Prodigy dials and hands.
Lytt Labs points to a number of urban architectural themes that are the inspiration for the eclectic mixture of finishes and textures of the complex Inception Prodigy watch dial. Specifically, Lytt Labs drew creative influence from contemporary public fountains that decorate the urban landscape. Public fountains have been central gathering spots in major city centers for well over 1,000 years. The role of public fountains today is to add thoughtful tranquility and a sense of escape from what some might consider the “urban grind.” Similarly, Lytt Labs designed the Inception Prodigy to both be useful and to offer a welcome mental escape when the wearer glances at the dial.
On the wrist, the Lytt Labs Inception Prodigy watch is a 45mm-wide square that wears sensibly, due to the integrated silicone strap system. The 316L stainless steel case is water resistant to 50 meters and topped with an anti-reflective coating applied on the sapphire crystal. Inside the watch is a Japanese-produced Seiko caliber NH35 automatic mechanical movement.
