On this page you will find the DayWatch principles, that form the basics of the concept.
DayWatch shows innovative concepts for looking at time in a different way. We believe time is not just the position of some hands on a scale, time is an amount. time is the amount of ‘space’ you have left, on a day, a year…a lifetime.. time is valuable space and passes by. Time is life. Time origin makes you aware of time.
The origin of time lies in the rotation of the earth. One rotation takes 24 hours; we call this amount of time a day. Ever since the first human being living on this planet this day is the clearest indication for the passing of time; it begins when the sun comes up and ends when it goes down. This is what time is, the origin.
It is the rotation of the earth that provides rhythm in people’s lives. This rotation creates day and night and changes the seasons.
DayWatch basic view showing real amounts of time In this figure, the view on the day,the sun’s position corresponds to the moment of time, it’s 14:00 hours Connecting the sun to the horizon divides the view in 3 segments:
1) the amount of daytime passed 2) the amount of daytime left before dark 3) the amount of evening / night time
the figure also shows: the time of sundown (19:30 hours) the time of sunrise (04:00 hours) the day / night ratio
Day / night ratio troughout the year
DAYwatch automatically adapts the times of sunrise and sunsets by connecting to internet to adapt the day/night ratio. A build in GPS adapts the settings to the place where you are
People nowadays are more and more aware of the fact that we are unbreakable connected with our natural environment. The way we handle time is not yet adapted to this awareness. Time is of significant personal value, due to an awareness of the limited time in each day and in human life spans.
DayWatch by Watchdesign is a realy different timepiece concept, not just in design, but the concept represents a lifestyle close to our natural environment.
An amazing new time concept
