Milan based designer and architect Denis Guidone has created a minimalist wrist watch for Projects Watches, named Sometimes. What you will notice about the contemporary Sometimes watch is not only the simple shape, colour and face, but the function of the hands, particularly the second hand. These elongated white hands are juxtaposed against the black dial. The second hand aligns with the minute and hour for only a moment, moving independently and appearing as if out of sync with time itself. Perhaps making this its most interesting feature. Sometimes it’s better to stop thinking about the time, whatever happens, it will not stop. Hours, minutes and seconds continue to play together. I can really appreciate the minimalist approach to this design and although I have never been particularly fond of round faced watches, I do like it. But what do you think?

Close to the end of 2010, Swatch released the New Gent collection. New Gent is a new version of the classic Swatch Gent. Most prominently, it’s a bit bigger. With its sober, light and comfortable design, the New Gent is a welcome alternative to the oversized, feature-packed, expensive watches. Swatch understands classic and contemporary design. The New Gent has the unique quality that it fits with any style, from sport to smart. It’s available in ten combinations, raging from full black to full white, with light contrasts of colour in between.
