design: Michael Young
to be confused with new radiotelescope dishes for SETI, these cool new
ODM Hacker watches were released this week at Watchismo.
The Hacker's deep, concave dial rises up from the sunken center, where
form-fitting graphics lead your eye inwards. Behind the capped steel
disc on top of the crystal, the hands indicate the time as negative
space. Just imagine Marc Newson's iconic Ikepod, cut in half, then
drugged with some very strong painkillers. Then you'll get the Hacker.
Exclusive to Watchismo!

Favourite watch in my collection. Had it for two years, the watch face did get a crack in the glass and the back plate started moving after a year. Easy enough to fix. Hard to get replacement parts though.
