Welcome to DayWatch!
Concept design by Harrie Sijbers product design
DayWatch by Watchdesign is a concept for looking at time in a different way. We believe time is not just the position of some hands on a scale, time is an amount. time is the amount of ‘space’ you have left, on a day, a year…a lifetime.. time is valuable space and passes by. Time is life. DayWatch by Watchdesign makes you aware of time.
The patented concept (2004)
THE ORIGIN OF TIME
In the old days the sun, moon and the earth were the only elements to measure time.
It is the rotation of the earth that provides rhythm in peoples life. This rotation creates day and night and changes the seasons. It is the position of the sun that tells about the progression of the day.
This progression is in fact what time is: Whats left of the day before it gets dark, what’s left of the night before a new day starts. Here we find the origin of time.
