The essence of time

Sunwatch is the natural way to manage your time with help of the sun. All living beings have this daily rhythm implanted in their natural way of living. Trees and plants, animals, bugs, birds, and yes, humans. It’s the way that you would live your life if you didn’t have a clock at all. It’s the way that birds know when to start singing and when to stay quiet.

FOLLOW THE SUN

Planet earth -nature- is suffering from natural catastrophes. It is up to us to act by fundamentally adapting our way of life to what the earth offers us. That requires change in our mindset and behavior as we live every day. How wonderful can it be that there are innovations that stimulate and help us in this? With ‘Sunwatch’ we might begin to consider ourselves ‘a part of nature’ and by wearing this watch show concern for the planet, a strong signal. The watch itself cannot save our planet but it can make an important contribution to awareness and involvement. Sunwatch is an inspirational product, it tells a story, about the earth, about the sun. It may help us and our children become aware of the power and importance of the sun and its relation with time. ‘Follow the sun’ is not just a slogan, living close to nature is a must to save our planet.

WHAT STORY CAN YOU TELL?

Sunwatch is a product that inspires. We and our children can learn a lot with this concept unlike with common watches with just hands.

With the sun added you can tell the story: where does time come from? Why do we have night and daylight? What role do the planets play in this. How do we get the seasons?

With this concept you can make children aware of the power and importance of the sun and it’s relation with time.  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.

With the sun added you can tell the story: where does time come from? Why do we have night and daylight? What role do the planets play in this. How do we get the seasons?

VIDEO 

This video gives a short introduction to the concept.

This  watch concept displays time close to nature, with a charming link to the origin of time: the moving bodies in universe.

The watch shows, except for the SUN time, the amounts of day- and night-time: at what time does the sun set and at what time does it rise again. See what’s left of the day before the sun sets. See what’s left of the night before the sun rises.

The watch hits the top of the list for its unique selling points: engineering, features and design.

Designwise it shows a watch that stands out of the crowd without moving into an extreme offensive design. It is a perfect blend of high-tech and elegance.

It’s all in nature

The origin of time

 

In the old days the sun, moon and the earth were the only elements to measure time. It is the rotation of the earth that provides rhythm in peoples life. This rotation creates day and night and changes the seasons. It is the position of the sun that tells about the progression of the day.

This progression is in fact what time is: What is left of the day before it gets dark, what’s left of the night before a new day starts. Here we find the origin of time.

 

Throughout history the sun always played a major in time measuring devices. The first way that people could tell the time was by looking at the sun as it crossed the sky. When the sun was directly overhead in the sky, it was the middle of the day, or noon. When the sun was close to the horizon, it was either early morning (sunrise) or early evening (sunset). Telling time was not very accurate but the sun played the major role, just as in these watchconcepts.

 

MINDSET

This watchconcept  is also an expression of a certain attitude and mindset, towards the environment. NOW challenges you to tell the story behind the concept. The story of the earth, the sun, light and dark, summer and winter time. The influence on our daily life.

Award winning Design

For the design above, the starting point for Sijbers watch design, Sijbers received an award from an International jury at the Bienalle in Kortrijk.

Let’s Start Something new
Say Hello!

Currently I am looking for partners who can help me by offering me technical and business expertise and / or financial resources to turn the NOVV concept, of which the patent is granted, into reality.

I appreciate to have your feedback, kind regards,

Harrie
