Advertisement: ARRI DoP*1 Limited Edition — The Cinematographer’s Watch


ARRI DoP-1 watchThere are countless wristwatches on the market catering to specialty technical fields, such as aviation, diving, race-car driving and engineering, but none that had ever been specifically designed for professional photographers, and offering a countdown-to-zero function.

With this in mind, ARRI asked the well-known German cinematographer Tom Fährmann (Das Wunder von Bern, Die Päpstin) to conceptualize a watch that would meet the requirements of his own peer group.

The result is truly impressive: the DoP*1. In thinking about the kind of timepiece a cinematographer might value, Fährmann was mindful of those all-too-frequent occasions on set when unforeseen circumstances mean the task at hand must be put on hold. For situations such as these, the DoP*1 features a special bezel timer: once set, the minute hand counts down the remaining time to zero. You can fix the timeframe at your disposal to carry out a second job while waiting to go back to the original task, checking at a glance whether or not the pre-set time is up.

In addition, the DoP*1 exemplifies the reliability and durability that results from traditional workmanship. Inside is a fully mechanical automatic movement, with calendar indication, from Swiss manufacturer ETA; outside is a shock-resistant, low-reflective, black PVD-coated steel case that is water-resistant to 200 meters. A scratch-proof, ultra-hard sapphire crystal and a black rubber strap complete the armor of a tool that is tough enough to withstand the demanding physical rigors of a film set.
