Slip Watch

A Moment Caught in Time

Case study

The Slip Watch is the first product released by nonlinear studio. The design takes the simple archetypal watch shape and puts it into motion with a slight twist. The skewed posture of the watch gives the modern clean lines a new “spin”.  The watch is intentionally minimal, with proportions that are almost predictable. However, its skewed posture that makes the watch appear to be slipping off the band, like a moment caught in time; a poetic commentary the passing of time.  At the same time, a more ergonomic result is achieved with the face addressing the wearer with less turning of the arm. Furthermore, the band penetrates the casing at 12 and 9 hours marking, giving reference to an otherwise unmarked face. This slightest tweak has given a timeless form an intriguing character while giving you a watch that is easier to read. Specifications: Stainless steel and leather. Face measures 1.5” diameter. 1” thick band. Quartz movement. Watch face is stationary and does not rotate.
