A watch is an object that is both a piece of jewellery and a tool. Like a monumental boulder, the more marked it is with use, the richer the object becomes. Every unnecessary part has been omitted. These watches were designed with these thoughts in mind.
All models were produced by Studio Ninaber.

Bracelet watch '73
The bracelet consists of two sections: the steel watch segment and a plastic segment in several colors. A steel segment is also available. The chosen segment can be put together with the watch segment according to mood or character.

Pendant watch '76
The pendant watch can be worn around the neck or used as a pocket watch, leaving your hands free. The design hinges around the meeting between the soft rubber and the hard aluminium. The pendant watch has been included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

Wristwatch '84
The key role is played by the meeting of the soft, leather strap and the solid titanium case. The strap is slightly elastic thanks to its rubber core. This is a watch that simply gets more beautiful in use.
