Michael Young's new timepiece "Hacker Watch" for o.d.m. is inspired by many of the precision
engineering projects his studio has been involved with. The name derived from a group of
experts that create useful programming for the public is combined with play on words for running about town.
In this case, Michael is a professional watch designer while o.d.m. is a top level watchmaker; Michael has
masterfully combined the aesthetics and craftsmanship of fine watches with customer’s highest expectations
The appearance is based on the application of visual ergonomics by using bold lines from the center to the
edge of case that lead the eyes pleasantly allowing the time to be read at a glance, the dial curvature and watch case are near seamless to deliver a
premium yet delicate timepiece.
