A bold and dramatic way to mark the passage of time


I’m not sure what I think about this. I’m not totally hating on it. I can’t knock the unconventional design Alexandros took on his Ora concept. I love how he said screw traditional dial arrangements and replaced the normal with interwoven measuring tape looking strips. One to indicate the hour, one to indicate the minute and the other to indicate the day. The watch is definitely a bold and dramatic way to mark the passage of time. Seems pretty damn huge, tho. You’d have to have ginormous hands for it to look normal strapped to one of your wrists. Perhaps it’s just me, but I don’t want my watch to suggest just how small my penis may or may not be. Jokes aside, Alexandros Stasinopoulos has a pretty impressive list of work on display via his website. Definitely worth a few minutes of your time. Oh, BTW, Ora [awr-uh]: phonetically a) “hour” in Greek b) in Greek the imperative “look!”.

    Finally a watch that won’t look diminutive on my big wrists.
