Crossover BLACK
Contemporary and Elegant Crossover BLACK

Crossover BLACK is contemporary, yet has elegant hands that appear to be precariously balanced rotate around the dial. Crossover BLACK is a modern watch with tapered gray, white and yellow hands. The second hand is yellow, the minute hand is white and the hour hand is gray.  Follow the pointed ends for the time! Modeled after the game of “pick up stix”, Crossover BLACK has thin hands that are slightly askew to the center giving this timepiece elegant stature.  You will be staring at time all day but assuredly not wasting it. The Crossover BLACK Watch is Denis Guidone’s fifth watch for Projects Watches. First, KAOS followed by SOMETIMES, TOWARDS, DEJA VU.  Each unique and challenges the wearer to look at time unconventionally.

Always in our cities the passing of time is ruled by rhythms, sequences, synchronies. Today in the contemporary city is this still valid? What is the relationship between working time and free time? Does “work” come before play or the other way around? Is there a regularity to social activities? To what extent are people and their activities interconnected to one another’s space? The Temporal essence of our age reflects itself in The Crossover Watch. The dial being the metaphor of the post chronological society, loose from hours; finally free to enjoy one’s own time. The normal three hands placement on the dial has been replaced with three tapered bars that appear to have fallen randomly on top of one another, intended as a nod towards the game of “Pick-Up-Stix“.

Crossover‘s elegant hands appear to be precariously balanced as they rotate around the dial. This illusion is achieved by fixing each of the bars to a central pivot point at different angles, allowing them to move independently while appearing to be stacked on top of each other.Crossover is a unisex watch measuring 40mm (1.57″) in diameter and 7.6mm (0.30″) high. It is made of black IP stainless steel with hidden lugs that connect the band seamlessly.  Available with a 20mm (3/4”) wide black band or black stainless steel mesh band. Crossover BLACK has black, gray, and yellow hands; Crossover STEEL comes with black, gray and red hands.
