Inspired by the mobiles of famed artist Alexander Calder, the Xela timepiece from designer Daniel Will-Harris celebrates the concept of kinetic artwork. The blue hour hand and red minute hand intertwine as the silver second hand constantly spins. Its yellow shape and black shape mark 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, respectively. Contemporary, colorful and playful, this watch is more than a simple timepiece—it’s a work of art.
