“Ergonomic shape and angle for ease of telling time.” – Denis Guidone
TOWARDS is as unique in construction as it is in style. The 40mm
case is tilted toward the wearer at an angle making Towards a true
ergonomic timepiece with both large numbers and an easy to view date
box. To emphasize the re-orientation, the number twelve is printed on the glass, the crown placed below it on the case, and the date calendar placed at the 4 o’clock position.
This unique and contemporary timepiece from Italian designer, Denis
Guidone has a seamless band that connects to the body of the watch with
no visible lugs or connections. Characterized by this slanted case is a
20 degree shift in the position of the number twelve. The face is
simple and elegant. Even during the flurry of fingering a keyboard, time
is visible at a glance making the need to twist the wrist a thing of
Towards’ unique features include the number “12″ painted on the
underside of the lens, the indices painted and attached on the dial and
the crown (that which adjusts the time) off center making Towards true
“architecture that you can wear”.
Towards measures 40mm in diameter (1.57″) and 10.0mm (0.39″) high at
the lowest point of the case (remember the case is angled like a ramp!)
and 14.79mm (0.58″) high at the highest point. The IP plated stainless
steel case is complemented by a 20mm leather band with black buckle.
