WATCHES AND CULTURE PRESENTS “TIME DESIGN”
A JOURNEY INTO WRISTWATCH DESIGN
After previewing at Watches and Wonders Geneva; the exhibition was on view in Geneva (April 14 to May 8, 2022). Across seven themes, visitors embark on a journey to the heart of watch design through the twentieth century to the present day, and beyond.
The watch’s modes of expression have always emphasised aesthetic considerations and attention to detail. The exhibition revealed the many creative facets of watch design in a journey through time. After a brief evocation of pocket watches, this immersive exhibition trained the spotlight on the wristwatch and its multiple stylistic iterations, from form watches to tool watches and contemporary executions. Presented in showcases, imagined by students at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne, some one hundred objects illustrated the inventiveness and diversity of watch design.
Watches and Culture, the cultural division of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie and curator of the exhibition, crafted seven inspirational worlds to illustrate the fabulous creativity of “time design”.
