IDA Design Award Winner 2019
As time changes so too does one’s perspective. We are constantly reminded how differently one thing can be interpreted. From design team Negroimpar, the Hatch STEEL Watch was created to show the ever-changing perspective that occurs as time passes by. By utilizing the Hatching technique, which seeks to create value by drawing or shading closely spaced parallel lines, the face of the watch is constantly evolving. In the case of the Hatch, parallel lines are used to initiate a cross-hatching pattern as time changes throughout the day. Red (Hatch BLACK) or Black circles (Hatch STEEL) chase each other across the face of the watch to show the minute and hour, as a single white second hand stretches across the dial to serve as a simple reminder of the inevitable beauty of perspective.
Hatch BLACK is a unisex watch measuring 40mm (1.57″) in diameter and 8.8mm (0.35″) high. It is made of a black IP stainless steel or silver brushed stainless steel and comes with a 20mm (3/4″) black leather band. Or if you wish, just order an extra silicone band at the time of purchase. Our exclusive stainless steel mesh band also fits the Hatch. All bands can be found under BANDS at the top of the page.
The watch is designed by NEGROIMPAR (Spain). Its principals, Alvaro Alvarez, an Industrial Designer (graduated from the IED Madrid) specializes in product and furniture design and Maria Lopez an Architect (graduated from the ETSAM, Polytechnic University of Madrid) specializes in energy-efficient architecture solutions and creative processes.
