The full story
Many fashion brands make modern 3 piece suits, but there are few accessories that goes with it. Yet, we’ve seen an increasing trend of men’s fashion accessories and the wristwatch is one of them, but where the actual main function of the watch has changed.
People’s behavior of using a watch has gone from showing time to showing style. The evolution of the timepiece to primarily a personality statement worn less and less for practicality. The practice of telling time has also transferred to a large extent to our mobile phones and also changed our behavior where we reach for our pockets to check the hour rather than flick over our wrists.
How did we solve the problems
By designing an iconic and classic accessory allowing this type of behavior but that also could fit the modern wardrobe.
By keeping the original usage of the pocket watch, we could capture and encourage the behavior that we’ve seen, allowing the owner to “show off” the accessory when being pulled out of the pocket.
The iconic shape of a pocket watch is kept, but with a design that makes it possible to manufacture the case out of one single piece, allowing it to be produced with modern manufacturing methods such as 3d-printing.
Smart phones and other devices are today feeding us with various amount of information, where time related data is one of them, which makes it possible and even more relevant to strip down the functions on the dial to the most essential – to show the time.
