The T-Block Effect

Watches are to men as diamonds are to women; both count as the number one fashion accessory and are timeless. Innovation is of essence and creative ways of telling time is a novelty factor. Beyond doubt, complications and mechanical watches are the epitome of technicalities, however due credit has to be given to path-breaking manufactures like the T-Block Watch. Designed to dress the wrist, the most challenging part is to resist the linear display of time!

The watch is inspired by the ‘less is more’ styling and is made using a tough polyurethane case and seamless matching strap. There is a very unique way to read the time, which is showcased via the embedded LEDs on the watch face. The dial houses an array of attractive lights that dim in sleep mode. However, if you want to know the date or time, simply hit one of the buttons and the lights appear, revealing it.

Ask a watch designer and they will tell you that designing it is not as easy as drawing a strap and affixing a dial; there is a scientific and holistic approach to it. Research and development are the backbone of this endeavor and only once everything is in sync, can it be manufactured. The same process applies to the T-Block Watch, which stems from the lineage of the Classic, Zero A and Zero B watches from TIME-IT. After the successful invention of the ‘linear time reading system’, the process was integrated in this iconic watch.

The TIME-IT folks say that it took several years of R&D by a devoted team of technicians, engineers and designers to realize this studio. Founders Ramon Groen and Michaël Mourgue laid the groundwork of creating a watch never seen before: An LED display with linear time reading system that could change perception of time!
