steel with rubber band, superluminova coated face
limited edition of 150
The 2π watch face shows a puzzle of mathematical workings-out in the designer’s own handwriting, forming equations and formulas. This watch is a playful, visual interpretation of our desire to manage that most uncontrollable aspect of our lives: time itself.
“π 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.” Rolf Sachs
To date, Rolf Sachs has worked with Fortis on four art edition watch projects: IQ, frisson, 2π and 2.4ml, joining a distinguished group of designers who have created limited edition watches for the Swiss watchmaker.
