COMPASS

Product Design

Let me ask you something, what is the purpose of being aware of the hour? We gave it a thought, and we believe that, just like a compass, it gives us notion and orientation. So, as an inside joke between us, we made a compass of time.

Up-to-the-minute as it should be, a 37 mm diameter case; minimalist but powerful, a black dial with a blue single hand, playing with the core metaphor of this watch. Appealing for everyone that appreciates design, quality and value, Compass shows evidence of compromise and will delight many watch fans around the globe.
