From the set of our issue 8 fashion feature on watches – the beauty of the time-piece

“Unlike diamonds, watches were practical. They were for people on the run, people with appointments to keep and schedules to meet”
― Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Let’s be honest: watches are not just practical, they’re also beautiful design objects, as this selection of watches is testament to. In this short film by Stefan Heinrichs, we look at the beauty of the watch not just as an ornament, but as a working design interacting with its context – in this case, sitting on the wrists of master-musicians as they perform.
