Tangency

Tangency Watch is the first design Joel Escalona has done for Projects Watches. Inspired by a playful geometrical game, where lines and shapes interact by hiding and revealing curious relationships with one another.

Tangency

Product Design

Tangency Watch is the first piece that Joel Escalona designs for Projects Watches, joining a global network of architects and designers who collaborate with the American firm to find innovative ways to interact with time. 

The 40 mm case and the brushed finish of the stainless steel, follow the trends of haute horlogerie. In the dial, a geometric game reveals curious movements, where the seconds, as insignificant as they may seem, are the real protagonists moving on an independent dial of the hour and minute hands.

One of the greatest qualities of Joel is to transform daily activities into unique experiences, such as checking the time in the new Tangency.
