Relaxed experience of the day

The Sunwatch day is naturally dependent on your location and the current season. The lengths of day and night changes every day and slowly transitions during spring and fall between longer nights to longer days, and vice versa. Following the sun gives you the natural schedule in your life. Time management is already in nature and we’ve been following it since the beginning of time. It’s the most natural way of planning your day and will help you feel at peace and in-sync with nature and our planet. The shift of looking at a 24-hour day rather than two rotations of 12 hours gives already a more relaxed experience of the day.

WHAT WE DO

Breaking away from the status quo: SUNWATCH

Watches are one of the most popular luxury accessories in the world. A lot of diversity can be found and at the same time they tend to fall into the same mold: traditional face and a standard way of telling time.

Sunwatch by Harrie Sijbers, product designer in Sijbers productions, time display has been reduced to the essentials. The watch is a statement, emotion, piece of jewelry and a work of art at the same time. In addition, there is a direct link to the origin of time which makes the watchconcept interesting and educational. The symbolism of the concept is a statement for a more consciously relaxed life. A life connected with nature.

Sunwatch, an inspirational concept, fits perfectly in this time

THE ORIGIN OF TIME

In the past, the sun, moon and earth were the only elements to measure time. This progression is in fact what time is; What’s left of the day before the sun goes down, what’s left of the night before a new day begins. Here we find the origin of time. These basic values are displayed at a glance on Harrie Sijbers ‘Sunwatch’ concept.

The sun warms our seas, stirs our atmosphere, generates our weather patterns, and gives energy to the growing green plants that provide the food and oxygen for life on our planet. The Sun provides light. The light helps provide energy to the Earth, through electromagnetic energy. It also helps animals see in the day and the night (through the moon). This light also helps plants grow, and since plants consume carbon dioxide, and produce oxygen, plants are vital to human life.
