The concept idea of the “glide time” was born reflecting on the passage of time, hours, such as an inevitable, eternal, divine event. Spontaneously bring to mind the image of a waterfall, in its endless movement, just like the time that never stops. This comparison defines the shape of the project: the glass “glides” on steel, accompanying the curvature of the watch.
The dial and the external part of the clock could be decorated with screen simple prints in order to not disturb the reading,so you can customize the watch through serigraphs and colors.
Wearing the watch is simple as wearing a bracelet: it has a closing spring, fitting to any wrist dimensions.The crown is on the right side and is flush with the steel.
As required by the brief, the “glide time” is a wristwatch, analog and made of stainless steel (preferably satinized).It is designed for a female audience.
