Pragmatic, humorous and poetic are all words often used to describe designer Joel Escolona’s work. His work is centered around the belief that ideas should engage meaningfully while pushing limits of contemporary design.
The 40mm case and brushed finish of the stainless steel Tangency watch from Escalona, closely follows the trends of haute horlogerie—or the high art of watchmaking. Its dial is a geometric game revealing curious movements where the seconds are the real protagonists, moving on an independent dial of the hour and minute hands. This geometrical wonder is both a stunning timepiece and a study in kinetic sculpture for the wrist.
