Formafantasma's watch for Rado inspired by pocket watches | Dezeen

Rado Design Week continues with the launch of a special edition of Rado's True Square watch by Formafantasma, which the Italian design duo explain references traditional pocket watches in this exclusive video by Dezeen. Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, the Italian duo behind Formafantasma, have designed a minimal version of Rado's True Square timepiece that features a small opening on the front to tell the time. Called True Square Formafantasma, the watch revives a design feature of many traditional pocket watches, which feature a small window on the front of the case so the time can be viewed without opening it. "We were inspired by traditional pocket watches and closed watches so our design is a modern take on this historic tradition," Trimarchi said in the video. The monochrome watch's dials sit behind a small window that floats in the middle of the True Square's watch face, which blends into the linked strap of the watch. The designers worked with Rado to develop their watch design using the brand's injection moulding technology and signature high-tech ceramic material.
