Philippe Starck Veiled Watch Camouflages the Time
July 10th, 2007
Designer Philippe Starck is a master of modern minimalism, and his latest timepiece is no exception.
His Veiled Watch cleverly conceals an analog watch face behind a specially electroplated crystal that looks like a continuation of the stainless steel watch band. The entire design is perfectly flush with the case, creating a striking illusion that the watch is just a continuous metal bracelet.
Even the time-setting crown pushes flush into the back of the case, eliminating any distraction from the clean lines of the watch.
French online retailer Objectsby offers both men’s and women’s versions of the watch for $247 USD each.
[UPDATE: Technabob reader Mr. Mojave reports that the watch is available from Fossil for just $150 USD. Now that’s a deal!]
