Minimalist Komet watch for the astro minded.

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam says: I like minimalistic analog watches. They are so relaxed and can look so styslish. So I sketched for a simple but still diversified pair of watch hands.

This design called “Deflection” gets around this issue but retains the retro futuristic look.
