Spacetime is an original watch concept based on the movement and orbits of celestial objects, in particular that of our own planet around the sun.

I’ve always been fascinated in how our concept of time on Earth is relative to its motion around the sun; how a day is a day and a year is a year because of this motion. This was the inspiration for Spacetime. Watch the video below to see how it works (preferably on Vimeo to get full HD).

With regard to the form I wanted to do something completely at odds with conventional watch designs and create something inherently simple, ensuring the single focus is the movement of the time spheres. Functionally, the mechanical orbit of these time spheres distorts the surface of the TPE over-mould which ensures the form is kept simple in a unique way.

Spacetime has also featured on Yanko DesignTrendhunter and DesignFaves, thanks guys!

Orthographic views show overall design and form. The clasp is magnetic with the ‘spacetime’ etching indicating correct watch orientation, it should read the correctly way up when viewed on the inside of the wrist.
