TIMES  watch box


A first iteration of an idea which I hope to develop. Simply, a box — as a canvas — of set dimensions, consciously clear in design and straightforward in assembly, providing an unchanging basis for various themes — for changing times. Those set dimensions emerge from one particular time-related number: the number twelve. Every key measurement of the box, in millimetres, is either a whole divisor or multiple of 12. 

The time theme continues with the front panel of the box set at a ratio of 24:7 while the defining micro-chamfers and the presenting angle of the watches are both 15 degrees.
