The Face of Time

A simple yet elegant analog watch, the World Muji watch has something distinctive to it. From a distance, you see a beautiful watch, but at close range, you can see how the designer has placed the dial graphics onto the glass face with such intricate detail. The font of the watch was created to resemble a ruler commonly used for technical precision.

    Two ‘nines’ 🙁

    Wow, this must be the first time someone has printed under a crystal. oh wait, no lip did that back in the 19 70’s….

    The two nine’s bit is comical, a little bit of indecision on the layout my thinks.

    From my point of view, it could have been set off quite nicely by incorporating the 1/2 millimetre markers, commonly found on standard rules from zero up to 5 or 10cm, inbetween 12 and 1. or 2.

    Would have given the face design a more distinctive feel instead of it being beautifully minimal but in the same way plainly dull.

    Simple and great design!

  • Colin says:

    Wow, I bet its only worth $2

    That was your comment? “Wow, I bet its only worth $2” – before mocking other’s work, why don’t you show us something of yours – oh wait, that’s right – you don’t have any.

    This design, although simple, shows alot of effort has been put into it. I applaud the designer for his/her work. A very nice watch, that I’m sure many would (or do already) appreciate.

    I love this watch but can’t buy with my deflated american dollars. Any clues on a site that sells the world muji watch? Thanks.
