A wristwatch series, inspired by the drafting instruments draftsmen use to prepare precise plans and drawings. The third watch in the series, grid, takes inspiration from the grid triangle and graphing paper with a grid dial printed directly on the crystal. The 15, 30, 45, and 60-minute dial marks align on the grid, and the colour of the second hand of each watch complements that piece’s base colour:
orange on camel brown, light blue on navy and mustard yellow on warm grey. Drawing from the meaning of the word ‘draftsman’, the face of the watch has been intentionally left untouched to signify creating something from scratch in hopes of inspiring the wearer to do just that.
