Astroscope | Red Dot Design Award

Back Download

The dark dial of the Astroscope displays the weekdays by referring to old astronomical symbols that date back to the Babylonian calendar. Above the circular date window, a horizon is suggested, enhancing the impression of looking at a nocturnal sky. The numerals are displayed in a fine serif typeface and the astronomical symbols are coated with luminous paint. The single-hand watch is powered by a Swiss automatic movement, which can be viewed through the glass back.

Statement by the Jury

The functionally equipped Astroscope surprises with an extraordinary symbolic language, which matches the distinctiveness of a single-hand watch.
