Starck Palindrome Watches a Study in Simplicity
December 27th, 2007
Design virtuoso Philippe Starck continues to crank out some beautifully minimal timepieces, and these are no exception. The Starck Palindrome series offers up a design so clean that it doesn’t even look like it has a minute hand at first glance.
Look closer, and you’ll notice that the minute hand is actually replaced by the Starck logo on the watch’s slightly ovoid face. Then, a single rectangular block displays the current hour.
I was able to find these watches from Fossil in a men’s black ($125) and women’s white model ($110). With a little digging, you might be able to grab the hard-to-find, but oh-so-cool silver and orange version if you Google around a bit.
