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. Â Sure, not every design will please everyone, but sometimes you just have to take a stab at things, and see what works. Â 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. Â The latest creations to hit their catalog are the Overlap and the Tangency.
The first one, the Projects Watches Overlap, is an interesting design, tucked into a 40mm case. Â While it looks like the band extends into the case (and is visible), that is just a clever illusion. Â Over the top of that on the dial, you’ve got three discs. Â The topmost one is the running seconds, and then you’ve got clear discs for the hours and minutes, which will intersect each other once per hour. Â Should be an interesting show, and atÂ $140, it won’t break the bank.
The other new watch, the Projects Watches Tangency, is my favorite one of the two. Â This one also uses discs to overlap, but you have what looks like a more traditional handset. Â This makes it look like an elliptical path in some cases (just an illusion), with them overlapping at times as well. Â This is also a 40mm watch, and comes in atÂ $135. Â Both are interesting options, I think, and would serve you well for something a bit different than the norm, all while maintaining affordability.Â projectswatches.com
