‘cwatch’ by thomas cruyl from belgium is one of the 150 shortlisted entries from the recent designboom competition ‘the intelligent hand’ in collaboration with macef.

‘cwatch’ is a tribute to the tradition of swiss artisan watch making. this timepiece combines the technical art of its internal mechanisms with the craftsmanship of another artisan technique – a decorative wooden exterior. the result is a hand watch which resembles that of a cuckoo clock.

the jury is almost finished making their selections and the results of the competition will be unveiled on january 15th, 2010.
