Andrew says: Hadron is a Torus analogue wrist watch is inspired by the large Hadron collider at CERN. The Hadron Collider uses high powered electromagnets to pull atoms / electrons around a giant loop of Vacuum tube to close the speed of light before smashing them together to reveal the sub-atomic structure of the universe. This lead to the discover of the Higgs boson Particle. (Materials: See Diagrams)
Anders says: I was looking at animations of some ultra high-end watches and inspiration struck to make something with a similar feel, but less complicated and more affordable. I wanted to use a standard analog movement, but that soon proved impossible. Hopefully the visual impact of the display exceeds the increased complexity. Continue reading →
Dr. Gäbler says: The idea came up in the discussion with my daughter Marianne. It was the intention to save the design of the “Pimpin’ ain’t easy” watches, in an new extraordinary miniaturisation. My Brother, an architect, was helping with the Design and CAD.
