Sometimes MAGENTA Watch
Designer: Denis Guidone
A combination of red and violet, the color of the Sometimes Magenta Watch contains the passion, power and energy of red with the subtle coolness of violet. The color is known to create harmony and balance in every aspect of life; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The color magenta was first named in 1859 and named after a battle for Italian independence. The town of Magenta is located in northern Italy.

Hours, minutes and seconds continue to play together. Something will happen… Let’s wait.[/blockquote]
…and it is this detail to color and to the construction of the Sometimes Magenta Watch that makes it both a unique and quality timepiece. Like its orange and blue siblings, The Magenta Watch is constructed with a black IP coating on stainless steel for durability and strength. With a black matching buckle, the band is a one piece that slides through the back so no unsightly lugs or connection points of band to case can be seen. Choose from a wide color selection of bands that you can change as easily as your shoes or other or any other article of clothing. The palette of Sometimes is both contemporary and classic, with elongated hands juxtaposed against the black dial. The second hand aligns with the minute and hour for but a moment. The independent movement of the seconds appear to be out of sync with time itself.
