M1 Watch

Finalist

Competition: Spark:Spring Concept
Designer: Zach Raven - Owner/Chief Creative Officer
Design Type: Timepiece
Company / Organization / School: RVNDSGN

The M1 is the next timepiece from the innovative firm RVNDSGN who brought the world the first 3D printed timepiece. Using our knowledge from past watches we set out to design something truly new. We paired the design down to the essential elements by removing hands, bezels, protruding crowns and branding to create an extremely legible piece. Our unique domed dual-layer face sandwiches between a domed edge-to-edge sapphire crystal and a Swiss Sellita SW-200 automatic movement which keeps the watch wound by harnessing the wearers movement. By using the inherent optical properties of sapphire, we create the illusion the time is being displayed directly on the surface of the crystal. As watches are worn more as fashion than utility, we distilled our face down to 15 minute increments to echo the reply a person receives when asking the time. "It's quarter after 2" or "About half past 5". 31 digits surround the perimeter of the crystal indicating todays date.
