BENJAMIN HUBERT X NAVA – PLICATE WATCH
No word on price or release date as yet, but check out the pics. Dope watch collaboration for sure.
In designing the latest watch for an Italian accessories brand NAVA, British designer Benjamin Hubertset the task of challenging the conventional notion of watches. It is obvious by looking at the finished product, that there are several elements, which gives this watch a distinct aesthetic. First thing that jumps into the eyes are the 3D face, constructed like a fan, showing time without the need of bars or numbers. Second improvement comes in the form of revised strap closure, eradicating the use of buckles. Last detail is slightly subtle, yet it serves a great purpose especially in the summer season. The corrugated underside of the polyurethane wristband helps to ventilate, thus minimizing the development of sweat.
