Giorno/Notte born from the desire to innovate the traditional clock twelve hours and introduce a new reading of twenty-four hours. To do this the hour hand assumes greater importance than the one of the minutes and therefore becomes longer. This is the principle which facilitates his reading.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The unusual feature of this wrist watch is the fact that it shows twenty-four hours. The movement of the hours is highlighted by a circle that represents the sun, or the moon during the night, as it turns around a planet on the orbit of the hours, while a stylised arrow indicates the minutes in an inner circumference. Reading the hours will be instinctive than the conventional system, as it displays the circle of the whole day, twenty-four times slower than the minute hand.
