Block Watch is the first timepiece by London designer Tom Dixon, and is now available from Dezeen Watch Store
The watch features a distinctive square case stamped from a piece of stainless steel or brass and a circular face with etched numerals that point precisely to the time markers. The watch’s hour, minute and second hands are powered by a high-quality Swiss movement.
“I’m trying to produce something with an expressive neutrality,” says Dixon in the movie we filmed at his studio in London. “I tend to try and work out what I can strip out without losing character.”.
The timepiece is available in either stainless steel or rose gold (plated) with matching mesh straps.
The watch face is 40x40mm square making this watch suitable for both men and ladies.
Block watch is also available in brass with a chunky brown leather strap, which you can purchase here.
