Towards Watch Angles to Body
Ergonomic shape and angle for ease of telling time.- Denis Guidone
Towards Watch angles to body and is as unique in construction as it is in style. The 40mm case is tilted toward the wearer at an angle making Towards a true ergonomic timepiece with both large numbers and an easy to view date box. To emphasize the re-orientation, the number twelve
is printed on the glass, the crown placed below it on the case, and the date calendar placed at the 4 o’clock position.
This unique and contemporary timepiece from Italian designer, Denis Guidone has a seamless band that connects to the body of the watch with no visible lugs or connections. Characterized by this slanted case is a 20 degree shift in the position of the number twelve. The face is simple and elegant. Even during the flurry of fingering a keyboard, time is visible at a glance making the need to twist the wrist a thing of the past!
Towards’ unique features include the number “12” painted on the underside of the lens, the indices painted and attached on the dial and the crown (that which adjusts the time) off center making Towards true “architecture that you can wear”.
Towards measures 40mm in diameter (1.57″) and 10.0mm (0.39″) high at the lowest point of the case (remember the case is angled like a ramp!) and 14.79mm (0.58″) high at the highest point. The IP plated stainless steel case is complemented by a 20mm leather band with black buckle.
Color variations include yellow numbers and indices on a black dial, white numbers and indices on black dial, or black numbers and indices printed on a white dial.
About Denis Guidone
Denis Guidone, as student of architecture, design and visual communication studied urban planning and architecture in Milan, Italy and Oporto, Portugal. His project process was born under the concept of subtraction, an ideology that follows the unification of opposites through a constant approach on the edge of architecture and visual communication, and at the same time mediated by an expressive intensity that addresses work on the basis of subtraction. Fascinated by the passing of time, Guidone carries out this intense didactic work for several universities and design schools, in Italy and abroad. His many awards and honorable mentions include: Ida international design award in Los Angeles, IDOT Best Italian Design Product, and The Bruno Munari international award.Show products
