Projects Watches, Xela
The Xela Watch playfully measures time in colors and shapes.
The hour is told by the large blue shape. The minute, the smaller red shape with a hole in it to help point more accurately. The silver shape is the second hand, constantly spinning.
The crystal features a yellow object at the 12 o’clock mark. The face’s black object marks 6 o’clock. Together, these add depth that adds to the “mobile” feeling.
Xela Watch has a 40mm (1.57″) diameter case and complemented with a 20mm wide fabric Nato Band. The minute hand is depicted by a red mobile and the hour hand by the blue. The black and yellow mobile are on the dial and lens respectively lending depth and a 3 dimensional feel to the watch.
Currently in the Projects Watch collection fall into one of three categories. Architect-Designed Watches, which emphasize a three dimensional approach and incorporate color and structure. Kinetic Watches, which are aimed at the type of person who usually depend upon their phone to check the time. These watches are unique in that they are all interactive in some way, meaning they don’t tell time, they emphasize good design, and happen to tell time as well. Our last category is the M&Co Collection, these watches were designed in the 1980s by Tibor Kalman, a graphic designer and visionary. Since their inception these watches have developed a loyal and steadfast following. With many of the watches in the collection playing upon graphics and simplicity, it is easy to see why these watches will never go out of style.
