Even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, watch brands are still releasing new watches. Some releases have been pushed back, but others are charging forward, given the long lead times that the development cycle can engender. While these aren’t the newest of the new, Projects Watches has still released some interesting new pieces that are worth having a quick peek at.
So, yesterday’s article was a fairly tame take on the various designs coming out of Projects Watches. What if you said, you know, that’s great, but you want something that’s minimalist and abstract all at once, and maybe with an option for a blast of color? Well, friend, the Projects Watches Bauhaus is what you’re looking for.
Sometimes, you just want a clean, simple, three-hander watch. Sometimes, you want something that’s a big bold splash of color. Well, how do you get that peanut butter and chocolate together? Well, in the watch world, a variety of ways. Most recently, the Projects Watches Witherspoon Rouge gets the job done.
Projects Watches are certainly no stranger to bringing in unconventional designers to create watches. In particular, they seem to have an affinity for architects. Their latest has an architect at the helm, who took inspiration from a painting, leading us to the Project Watches Ode to Delaunay.
Spring is – supposedly – just around the corner. That means we’re going to be seeing things come into bloom, which means that we’ll see those friendly, fuzzy little pollinators zipping around as well. Fittingly, then, we’ve got the Projects Watches Reason to Bee coming onto the scene.
Not all that long ago, just the other week, in fact, we were mentioning Projects Watches in another writeup that was talking about a watch that focused on a new, funkier sort of design-driven watch. This time around, we’ve got an industrial designer and architect (both from Spain) powering up the Projects Watches Beyond the Horizon.
As a watch geek I get very excited about the inner workings of a watch, so when information on the Projects Watches Compass originally came across my desk, honestly I wasn’t all that excited – basic quartz movement, basic round case, basic leather strap, nothing to see here. Then I started doing a bit of research on the brand (which I’d not heard of previously) and checking out some of their other offerings. Cue a bit of excitement. Then, I checked out the animations of the Compass in action and the excitement level grew considerably. Suddenly I wasn’t thinking about what was inside the watch, but simply how it made me feel. This is exactly the reaction that Project Watches wants to invoke with their designs. It works!
If you’ve been reading us for any amount of time now, you know we (and, presumably, you and your fellow watch lovers) like unique presentations and designs. Sure, not every design will please everyone, but sometimes you just have to take a stab at things, and see what works. Projects Watches has been turning out interesting creations that spring from the minds of folks who don’t normally design watches – think, architects and electronics gurus. The latest creations to hit their catalog are the Overlap and the Tangency.
We just caught wind of a few new watches from Projects Watches that we thought we be of interest to you. As you’ve seen in some of our prior coverage, Projects Watches creates some interesting designs, relying on the talents of accomplished designers from other industries. This time around, we’re going to take a look at what they have on offer with the Elos and Hatch.
This is a ridiculous watch. And that’s the beauty of the thing. The watch world does not need the 597th Kickstarter campaign for a basic three-hander that “cuts out the middleman”—we need the Alexander Calder mobile-inspired handset of this unconventional take on time telling. At $135, this Miyota quartz-powered piece is a fun way to introduce the architects in your life to watches, or add a punch of color to your collection.
