The time in words on your wrist
Biegert & Funk presents the world‘s first
wristwatch in words
For the first time, Biegert & Funk is exhibiting a completely new kind of wristwatch, the QLOCKTWO does not show the time with hands or digits. Time is indicated on this purist watch as readable text, turning it into a statement: “It is half past nine”. The square watch face has a uniform grid of 110 letters. When the stainless steel button is pressed, words light up in unexpected places which describe the time. The initially random order of the characters lends this wristwatch a mysterious aesthetic. “QLOCKTWO
makes you aware of the moment. Showing the time becomes an interesting experience for the owner,”
explains Andreas Funk from the design duo Biegert & Funk.
The basic shape of the QLOCKTWO
is, like all QLOCKTWO® variations, a square. The design is minimalist and precision crafted, its form reduced to the
essentials. The high quality brushed stainless steel casing measures 35 x 35 mm.
Together with the time, QLOCKTWO
also displays the calendar day or seconds. “It is operated by a single push button and could not be more simple: one push to display
the time, two for the calendar day and three for the seconds,” says designer Marco Biegert.
