As the name “TRAPEZOID” suggests, I first had the image of a trapezoid form in rotation. The sharp-cut sides provide a tachymeter. Numbers are proportioned like speed limits painted on a road surface – stretched in height to be readable normally when viewed from the front, despite their steep angles around the circumference. It's a familiar scene and effect, and I've used it now in combination with chronograph functions. –
