Objest launches Hach etched timepieces

London-based startup Objest is launching its first range of watches with faces featuring a hatched pattern instead of the usual hour and minute markings. Instead, a zigzagging pattern of contrasting hatch lines is used to divide the face, creating 12 points to help the wearer tell the time.

“We wanted to design a timepiece that imbued a sense of controlled precision without being technical or over-engineered,” Objest founder Jared Mankelow told Dezeen Watch Store.

“Although the pattern adds visual interest to the dial it still has a functional role.”
