The formalization of the idea of a clock with linear movement can take many paths. However, the sun is always a central element: don’t we talk about a day, punctuated by it?
Here the sun is the moving element and the horizon takes the form of a “V” which reminds the needles of a watch. First hidden behind this shape, the star rises, then reaches its zenith to then approach the horizon and disappear again.
Time is read through the window cut into the main shape where the vertical line drawn on the sun aligns with the indexes. The new creation pays homage to George Nelson and his famous wall clock and makes a nod to Saint Exupéry’s Little Prince. It reminds us to celebrate the present moment, to preserve its intensity, freshness and novelty; like a child.
The concept, design, engineering, manufacturing and assembly are made in Switzerland.
