Starck Palindrome Watches a Study in Simplicity

by Paul Strauss

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.

    surely its the other way round? The name sticking out less suggests that that is the hour hand, and the longer rectangle the minute.

    Yeah, that’s what I thought would make sense too — but the description I was able to find (translated from French)…

    “The hour hand of this watch unisex seems to float by magic while the minutes (symbolized by the logo Starck) runs on a disc.”

    Just got an orange/silver one as a present. Yes, it’s weird: the hour hand is longer than the the minute one. I don’t know if I can get used to it.
