Xela Watch

Designer: Daniel Will-Harris

Simple. Playful. Modern. Colorful. Isn't this how we want our lives to feel? The Xela Watch playfully measures time in colors and shapes.

The hour is told by the large blue shape. The minute, the smaller red shape with a hole in it to help point more accurately. The silver shape is the second hand, constantly spinning.

The crystal features a yellow object at the 12 o’clock mark. The face’s black object marks 6 o’clock. Together, these add depth that adds to the “mobile” feeling. Inspired by the mobiles of Alexander Calder, the Xela is truly a work of kinetic art for your wrist.

Xela Watch has a 40mm (1.57") diameter case and complemented with a 20mm wide fabric Nato Band. The minute hand is depicted by a red mobile and the hour hand by the blue. The black and yellow mobile are on the dial and lens respectively lending depth and a 3 dimensional feel to the watch.

MoMa has called Designer Daniel Will-Harris “a computer graphics pioneer”, and his work “truly unique.”
