Terra Time Watch
Designed by SITE (James Wines and Alex Donahue)
Terra-Time inspired by landscape references – contour maps, topographical models, stone quarry excavations and agricultural terraces – this TERRA TIME watch has been conceived as an ‘earthwork on your wrist;’ where the sculptural qualities of light and shadow add poetic dimensions to the time-keeping services.
Since the visual identity of most watches is dependent on graphic imagery or some form of exposed technology, this ‘mini-quarry on your wrist’ offers a multi-layered sculpture, where light and shadow add poetic dimensions to the timekeeping experience.
Terra-Time is a stainless steel watch sandblasted several times over which gives it a gray look. The dial is comprised of 6 layers or as we like to refer to it, “six shades of gray” each representing the layers of the earth. Terra-Time is guaranteed to be noticed and goes with anything.
Terra-Time Watch has a gray brushed stainless steel case. It measures 40mm (1.57?) in diameter and has a 20mm wide gray silicone band. The watch measures 10? from end to end with 7? to the closest hole and 8 3/4? inches from the farthest hole. Terra-Time is “monochromatic” in appearance with its variations of a gray palette.
