This update to the Record watch by Italian architect and designer Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) now features a striking black face with white markings and hands, and new interchangeable coloured leather straps.
The latest version of this design classic comes with two leather straps: one in yellow and one in purple. The straps are entirely removable from the watch case, allowing the wearer to switch between the two colours easily.
Castiglioni designed the Record watch in 2000 for Italian design brand Alessi, making it one of the last products he worked on. He collaborated with Swiss designer and friend Max Huber for the watch face, with large playful numbers that make it easy to read the time.
Record comes in two sizes, small (30mm case) and medium (36mm case), with both yellow and purple interchangeable straps. The small 30mm case is best suited for a ladies wrist, whilst the medium 36mm case would fit well on both ladies and men.
