i like the whimsical avant designs of philippe stark (more on that later) and i like this watch called the palindrome. at first glance you think the minute hand is missing, but that’s actually his logo, and the little rectangular bit floating around in there is the hour hand.

fun, hmmm?

available in white and black at the fossil shop, but unfortunately you’ll have to hunt around a bit for that orange one…

    Hi Gigi,
    Ooooo, Marc and I love Philippe Stark! When we lived in LA, we hung out at the Mondrian Hotel one evening just to interact with his interior design. He’s such an inspiration.

    Aside from the fact that lemon juice corrodes aluminum, we’ve always admired his crazy rocket ship juicer. I’m usually much more into function over form, but he’s just so poetic with his design, I can’t help but be won over.

    This watch is fun. Again, something that I would like more as an accessory than a quick easy-to-read watch. Keep up the great finds!

    hi bri,

    isn’t philippe so cool? he is such an innovator and i am with you about form v. function. i can’t help it either. i just love his mind.

    yeh, i have a thing about being able to tell time easily, but sometimes these things can and should be compromised. 🙂

    thanks for the visit!
