Citroen on Time

Citroen on Time

Following the trend of automotive-inspired timepieces, the DS watch takes from the modern design language of Citroen’s huge, luxurious hatchback concept, the DS N9. With remarkable attention to detail, the watch features a similar dramatic silhouette with the same elegant, forward-pointing double chevron that’s continuously been a mark of the French brand. It’s just subtle enough that even non-Citroen drivers will appreciate it.

Googly Eyed Watch

Googly Eyed Watch

Silly really is the best way to describe this adorable timepiece by designer Mathilde Ampe! The clever SoH (Second of Happiness) watch has two separate axis for hours and minutes that resemble a couple of googly eyes. The face was designed to be easily interchangeable, allowing users to personalize the look of their watch. As time ticks by, the expression changes from cross-eyed, to bored, to mischievous. Wear it long enough and you’ll soon associate the time of day with the looks your watch is giving you!

Lunar Timekeeper

Lunar Timekeeper

Inspired by the heavenly body nearest us, the Time & Space watch is a reminder that our very concept of time and space have long been defined by the moon. Real photographs of a full moon taken in Western France were used for the dial plate which is accented by traditionally shaped floating hands that appear as shadows against the surface. It’s a beautiful, modern reinterpretation of the watch that gives a nod to the very reason we even have them!

Orbital Timepiece

Orbital Timepiece

Moon Crater draws inspiration from its namesake with elevated gold numerals 3, 7, and 11 sitting atop raised platforms within a recessed case. The minute and hour hands move across the dial, perfectly encircling the raised numerals as they orbit the center. In black leather and steel, it’s a unique design that either sex will appreciate.

Believe It or Not, It's a Watch

Believe It or Not, It’s a Watch

Named and shaped after the constellation Cassiopeia, this artistic watch design uses a series of zig-zagged multicolored LEDs for a surprising yet intuitive way of displaying time. To tell the time, simply count up the lights for each digit. Purple light designates double digit hours, blue designates single digit hours, and pink/red represent minutes in single and double digits respectively. Better work on your math skills if you want to sport this one!

Four Dimensions of Time

Four Dimensions of Time

The latest in a trend of automotive-inspired timepieces, the Quad concept takes from the design language of the detailed headlamps found in the new Porsche Panamera. Time telling is divided into 4 orbs that each display an isolated subset of time in days, hours, minutes and seconds. With an aesthetic that aims for the sporty side of the luxury-watch market, the Quad hits the mark.

Redline

Redline

The trend of automotive-inspired watches has existed for a while, but the Redline concept by Kornwit D is one of my all-time favorites. It’s immediately obvious that the face and bezel are directly inspired by the car tachometer, but the blue, yellow and red color scheme do more than remind us of revving engines. Its aesthetic has a sort of Mondrian neoplastic feel that cleverly draws awareness to each passing hour with intensifying color.

The Modern Man's Pocket Watch

The Modern Man’s Pocket Watch

The Meanwhile timepiece collection combines the traditional characteristics of pocket watches dating back as far as the 16th century with modern minimalism in a series of designs that are as bare as they are beautiful. Like the original designs, these watches lack a minute hand and are secured by leather straps but differ from their overly decorated, chained ancestors in their simplicity and mixture of modern materials like polished steel and concrete with traditional brass.

Brutalist Watch

Brutalist Watch

Dzmitry Samal’s limited edition concrete watches are a beautiful expression of mass that you can wear on your wrist. The 8 different designs are characterized by striking repetitive angular geometries that create a rough, blocky appearance with a focus on balance rather than preconceived symmetry. The concrete housings project totalitarianism but the wild faces scream unrestrained expression!
