Off into the wild blue yonder with the Projects Watches Beyond the Horizon

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.

Hello, Bees! It’s the Projects Watches Reason to Bee

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.

Architectural horology: introducing the Alexander Calder mobile-inspired Xela

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.

Introducing the Projects Watches Elos and Hatch

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.

The November 2015 Giveaway: Projects Watches Newark Museum Watch

Projects-Watches-Newark-Museum-Watch-01

If you recall, we first brought you word of the re-issued Projects Watches Newark Museum watch back in August. Now that the watch has been released, we have a rather nice opportunity for you to win serial number 100 of the new edition.

Carve out some time for Projects Watches

By now, you are no doubt aware that we here at WWR dig into the design details of the watches we learn about and review. One of the many areas of focus is often the dial. With this, we often wax semi-poetically about the various levels and changes of texture on a dial – or, conversely, how well a simple, matte dial works in a particular watch. If you find yourself more in the textured detail camp, then the just announced Projects Watches Carve is the one for you.

Introducing the Projects Watches Overlap and Tangency

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.

Introducing the Drawing 17 from Projects Watches

When it comes to watches, I am generally able to figure out how to read the time on the watch, as well as grasping at least the basics of how it is things are being indicated on the dial. With a simple three-hander, there’s not much to decipher, as it’s rather familiar. You can get into some esoteric designs and displays though, and then it gets a bit trickier. I will admit, when I first saw the images of the Drawing 17 from Projects Watches, I finally had to ask the brand to enlighten me as to how it was working.

Introducing the Projects Watches Grand Tour

Projects-Watches-Grand-Tour-Blue-01

Whenever I get news of new releases from Projects Watches, I always make sure to pay attention.  Sure, not every design is a solid win for me, but there is always at least one gem.  That streak holds true with their upcoming (in May) re-release of the only dual-time Michael Graves-designed watch, the Projects Watches Grand Tour.

Introducing the Projects Watches Ora Major

Projects-Watches-Ora-Major-03

Projects Watches is not a brand that seems to rest on its laurels. Sure, they have re-issues from their back catalog (like the Newark Museum Watch), but they also are creating new designs. We have featured a few different ones over the last year, and their latest takes a love of geometry and pushes it to the stars. That watch, designed by Alessio Romano, is the Projects Watches Ora Major.
