The Hourglass

 

The Hourglass is a true example of my drive to create beautiful quality watches with a twist. It is a watch much unlike the usual suspects, a remarkable watch that will attract attention and admiration just by itself. A bold watch for those who want to make a difference.

The Hourglass takes the concept of a singel hand watch to the next level. Using a fully exposed 3D shaped hour dial-hand allows for a double time indication.

The dial-hand has a bare minimum time indication on top. The single bar shows the hours of the day without any markings as reference. Not even a logo to disturb the very graphical look of the surface.

CF-Side- reading time

The dial-hand has a numbered and marked side to aid in a more accurate reading of time. Using the index on the case at 6 o’clock and the quarter hour markers, you will be able to tell time to about 2 minutes precise. With a little practice.

The watch is 41mm in diameter, 12mm thick, 50mm lug-to-lug. Glass, case and bottom form a perfectly symmetrical shape. 12mm is fairly high for a dress watch, but due to the large 3D glass it hardly shows.

The case is hardened to a very high degree to become virtually unscratchable. Together with the sapphire glasses, this will keep your watch look beautiful for years to come.

The watch has a large see-through back to show the Swiss automatic STP5-15 movement with custom rotor made by Swiss Technology Productions (a Fossil Group subsidiary).

The Hourglass is available in 6 (pastel) colors: blue, rosé, green, yellow, sand and white (not all colors are shown).

The Hourglass is available with a goat leather strap in 9 trendy colors: yellow, green, red brown, pink, dark blue, ocean blue, warm orange, white and black (not all colors are shown).

CF-Straps

The Hourglass is available with either a polished or a brushed case and bottom. The curved side of the screw in bottom is always polished.

“To say I was impressed is an understatement. The design speaks for itself and the execution was fantastic.”Brad, watchuseek member ‘bradjhomes’

“What really wins me over though is the sculptural aspects of the design.”Zach Weiss, Worn&Wound

“If you’re looking for a very modern take on that minimalism, then I think you would be hard-pressed to find something more unique than the Pheidippides Hourglass Watch.”Patrick Kansa, WristWatchReview
