ji lee’s ‘redundant watch’ tells time two times

ji lee’s ‘redundant watch’ tells time twice. partnered with anicorn watches, the designer’s latest piece is the continuation of the trio of time (ttt) series. the newest watch features a play on time, challenging the conventional watch faces and the way they express time.

the designer‘s redundant watch has no hour numbers, as the watch face only features clock hands. the still clock hands indicate the hour of the day, and the running hands tell the minutes and hour. the 40mm case is designed for both men and women and is made of 316l stainless-steel, available in black or silver. the casing is ultra thin, only measuring 7.5mm and the watch runs on a miyota gl20 japanese movement. additionally, the redundant watch’s straps are interchangeable with other watches from the ttt series.

‘when I was a graphic design student many years ago, I had a class project to design a clock. there have been so many great designs in the past that I couldn’t really think about anything original. then, I had the most obvious idea and designed this redundant clock.’
