Ever since the first mechanical clocks were made in the 1200s, they have consisted of a face and two hands. Until Steen Georg Christensen and Erling Andersen set out to challenge the traditional understanding of a mechanical watch. The year is 1984. Steen Georg Christensen has just acquired his father’s watch factory busy producing watches for great Danish designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Henning Koppel and Erik Magnussen.
Despite the bustle, Steen and his partner Erling had a mission: to design a watch that challenged traditional thinking. The watch should be as minimalistic as possible and only consist of a dial and one hand.
