Our affinity for minimalist timepieces has ticked forward with the sighting of this captivating watch designed by Jiwoong Jung, a Korean industrial designer who has been on our radar before for his furniture and lighting work. This time it’s the Hidden Time, a watch with an elegantly engaging way to communicate the passing of the hours.
As time passes a face reveals the time underneath by the minute – the numerals printed onto the glass – coloration denoting as day turns to night with a circular gradient. The effect shows the passing of light from day to night in a darkening cycle of white to blue to eventual black at the 12 o’clock top. Quite clever and beautiful.
