HVILINA's NARBUT collection is dedicated to the talent and legacy of the great artist. The collection includes a large number of references and graphic techniques that the famous master used in his works.
The letters N on the dial and O on the arrow are the stylizations of the artist's font. These letters were selected since their spelling is one of the signatures of artist's graphic works.
Despite the fact that Narbut used the Cyrillic alphabet, the N letter was often written in the Latin manner. An interesting feature of this symbol's outline is a decorative element in the form of a dot on the left connecting stroke.
The O letter is on the minute hand. It has serifs in its upper and lower parts, which is another feature that demonstrates the master's creative approach.
In the central part of the dial there is a pattern of a large number of small triangles, above which there is a massive hour hand of the same geometric shape. This layout symbolizes a reference to the patterns of the artist, with which he often decorated his illustrations. A triangle is also cut out on the index end of the hour hand, thus, with it, the arrow points to the time. The winder is decorated with an engraving.
The transparent back cover is made of sapphire crystal, under which, on the section of the mechanism, the name of the collection and the artist's signature pattern are engraved.
