Was introduced to the world of watchmaking at an early age by his father and master goldsmith Karl-Christian Braun. The elder Braun was a well-known specialist producer of watch cases. Martin officially became a watchmaker upon graduating from Pforzheim's famed School of Watchmaking in 1983. He then embarked on a watch internship with a well-known watch company, and was bestowed with the title "master watchmaker" in 1991 at the age of 27. During Martin Braun's studies to become a master watchmaker, he worked on an idea with one of his instructors for a timepiece to display sunrise and sunset. Braun worked on this concept for almost five years before proudly presenting the fruits of his labor, the EOS model in November 2000. At the same time he announced the founding of his own brand featuring a collection of watches strictly of his own design. Martin Braun, the brand, is now known to the watch world for its astronomical complications, creativity and incomparable designs..

The Notos is the fourth collection in Martin Braun. Deriving its name from Greek mythology, Notos was the son of Eos and Astraios.
The dial is made of highly polished black onyx with Rose Gold Arabic numerals, three registers and date and outermost white 1/5th seconds marks, declination and equation of time sector dials, month display and Rose Gold leaf hands. The watch is based around the sun declination indication, there is an equation of time gauge spanning almost a third of the right side of the dial.Additionaly a control disc with a fan-shaped display, the equation of time is extremely easy for you to read. As the equation of time disc already contained the month, Braun was easily able to incorporate a month indicator, between five and six oclock, as well. These three displays are balanced by a date aperture at 12 oclock. Powered by an automatic cal MAB 88 movement is very efficient. Rounding out this watch is a Brown Crocodile skin strap and Rose Gold Tang buckle.

This is truly a life style watch to own.. Martin Braun The main feature of the Notos is its sun declination indicator. The declination is a logical consequence of sunrise, sunset, the equation of time and a world position indication. It was used in ancient star maps to locate stars and works by showing the angle between the rays of the sun and the plane of the earths equator.
As the angle between the earths axis and the plane of the earths orbit is nearly constant, the suns declination varies with the seasons as the earth makes its yearly orbit around the sun. Its value follows an annual sine-wave-like curve, varying between 0º at the equinoxes and ±23.4º at the solstices.
It has positive values when the sun is above the equator (summer in the Northern hemisphere) and negative when below.. Martin Braun In addition to the sun declination indication, there is an equation of time gauge spanning almost a third of the right side of the dial. Thanks to a control disc with a fan-shaped display, the equation of time is extremely easy for you to read. As the equation of time disc already contained the month, Braun was incorporate a month indicator, between five and six oclock, as well. These three displays are balanced by a date aperture at 12 oclock..Braun has given equal attention to the aesthetics of the dial by using semi precious stones. The black dial is made of highly polished black onyx from Cocolong stone found in South America.
