As my “official” job is to design wristwatches…well I couldn’t stop from posting this “About time” table-clock by Buro Vormkrijgers ….it’s so poetic!!! And really really welldesigned!!!Their website deserves to be visited !!!
I quote from Mo.CoLoco about this watch:
” The About Time clock tells the time by slowly rolling clockwise on a table. You tell the time by reading the part of the circle that touches the table top. There are no numerals, you have to read the different parts of the continuous “Time-Sentence” on the clock face. Per the designers, Buro Vormkrijgers, “Itâ€™s a reaction on the tendency to plan our daily lives to the minute, because this clock only tells you the hours, so you are forced to answer the question â€œwhat time is it?â€ with the phrase ‘itâ€™s aboutâ€¦ oâ€™clock’. The slow continuous motion, and the continuous sentence force you to relax a bit when looking for the time.”
