Tangency

Product Design

A small geometrical show. When looking at the time is no longer a mundane activity but a delightful experience.

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. 

On the dial, one disc that seems to revolve around a different center from the hour and minute hands. This time around, no matter how insignificant seconds might seem, they are the protagonists of this abstract staging. 

Tangency Watch has a unisex 40mm size case. It is made of brushed stainless steel and complemented with a 20mm wide black leather strap.
