Ode to Delaunay measures 10″ from end to end with 7″ to the closest hole and 8 3/4″ inches from the farthest hole.
Designed by Architect, Moshe Safdie, Ode to Delaunay is inspired by French artist Robert Delaunay who co-founded the Orphism movement noted for its use of strong colors and geometric shapes.
The Ode to Delaunay is made up of three colorful spinning discs revealing hours, minutes, and seconds through open holes cut into each disc. As they rotate, the composition of circular geometries constantly shifts in homage to Delaunay’s 1938 painting,Rythme n°1. Even at a quick glance, the mesmerizing movement of colors and shapes constantly work to ensure complete clarity within the design.
This playful timepiece is housed behind a glass lens; its colorful watch-dial framed like a painting beneath the black IP stainless steel case. Measuring 40mm in diameter and 9.5mm in thickness, the watch is available with a 20mm black leather band.
