Harvard Pocket Watch
Initially, the size and the material were problematic.
Plastic – and especially 3D-printed plastic – is a versatile, useful material but not necessarily one that confers status. In a wristwatch it is competing with the precious metals and high-quality textiles used by the expensive brands. This particular watch is also large and clunky, and a plastic case surrounding it would be even more so.
We took inspiration from pocket watches, which nobody can really wear without a waistcoat, and put our watch on a chain. It’s a practical design for activities in which a wristwatch, especially one as big as this, would get in the way.
As for status, Harvard.
