’12 gan-ji’ watch

korean studio brownbreath in collaboration with japanese watch brand alive tokyo has created ’12 gan-ji’ watch. the design is based on the ancient chinese time concept ’12 gan-ji’, which both korean and japanese cultures have. ’12 gan-ji’  is an oriental time concept that divides a day by 12 terms differing from the  ‘1day = 24hours’ concept which we use nowadays. for example, 子 means 2 hours from 11 to 1. all of the 12 terms are the counterpart of 12 different animals. chinese characters were modified to sanserif font.
