Mathematically inspired and using the designer’s own handwriting to form equations and formulas, this watch is a playful, visual interpretation of our desire to manage that most uncontrollable aspect of our lives: time itself.
The 2π watch face shows a puzzle of mathematical workings-out, presented in Sachs’ distinctive style, which merges personality, character and chaos with a scientific aesthetic.
Rolf Sachs comments: “2π is a mathematical constant, seen everywhere in our everyday lives. It exists and brings order to the simplest and most natural of objects, from the shape of 2 our eyes to the ripples of a splashing raindrop. Time, on the other hand, like human existence, is fluid and chaotic and ultimately, uncontrollable. It is that duality and tension between science and creativity that I wanted to explore here – something I find particularly fascinating.”
