Peter says: “This is “Double Helix” a back to basics analogue watch design. The inspiration for this design is the humble spring washer or locking washer which simply consists of a washer which is split and shaped into a subtle helix. This design uses two helix like forms to describe the time hence the name “Double Helix”. Continue reading →

The original Hybrid concept was popular when it featured on the blog in March 2012, but proved to be too costly to make and technically difficult due to the heavy metallic disc. This version uses a similar time telling method but gets around the technical issues. Continue reading →
