Saint Honoré "The Line Watch" By CharlElie
When you are an artist you don't need to make sure all your lines are straight. In fact, that is sort of the whole point of its "oops I hit a bump while applying my lipstick" style vertical racing stripe white line on the new Saint Honore watch. Or perhaps this is what lane dividers look like when you are drunk? Joking aside, the artful concept of this watch is pleasant.
Designed by artist ChalElie, this watch is expressionist art. The point of the straight vertical line is to comment on the path-like nature of time. Always moving in one direction. While it might also seem to be constant, it is really moving in the same direction all the time. Around the dial of the watch is a round line. This other white line symbolizes our circular interpretation of the time. Both concepts are equally sound for our lives, and both represented on the dial. The watch is mostly black with white and yellow-orange accents. An interesting piece, and also available as a limited edition only.
While Saint Honore hasn't disclosed the size of the watch, the steel square case is PVD black coated and curved for comfort. It has double sapphire crystals (front and back), as well as decorated Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement inside. The Saint Honore The Line watch will be available as a limited edition of just 125 pieces to celebrate the125th anniversary of the brand.
