The future is gonna be much more individual and multifaceted

We will have less normed, massproduced items. New technics will make it possible, that we can wear clothes, which only exist like that once, or that we drink out of a mug, which nobody can buy in the same design.
Our ::concentric watches sind are forerunners of such new singular products, handmade with the help of computer- and moderne printing tech.

Watchdial design and printing

The graphics for the individual dials is generated with a software, which we developed and programmed ourselves. It makes concentric (and other) random designs in always different geometry and color combination. Only few results of the random generator are interesting for the use in a ::concentric watch. After a multi-level selection it needs some adjustments and optimizations, until finally a dial can be printed in professional, high resolution photo-quality, and punched by hand to be available to build into a watchcase. Per contra to digital printing no pixels or pointgrids can be seen.

 
* Our current introductory prices are valid not later than until the end of 2015, after that, we must for economic reasons rise the prices for about 30% - like other Swiss Made watches of this quality.

Idea and concept

Daniel Schulthess (Jg. 67) is architect und designer -he studied in his photography randomn structures, their aesthetics and also mathematically the theory of probability - before the 'Random Art Generator' was created.

Random structures and color combinations (number of options would be here the factorial of the number of rings x number of ring widths x 16.7 million) have a particularly strong expression. If you try to obtain it manually, which is connected with great effort - and a structure which acts no longer completely random (and thus naturally). Our brain will always try to select the color according to certain principles. For example, 'Now I have 2 blue rings, there should perhaps follow a beautiful red' etc. The computer, however, will rather take a third blue being followed by a dirty brown. Through this absolute light-heartedness of the machine a different aesthetics is created.
Various color concepts in the form of pattern and composition are suggested by the random generator - skips the designer one in the eye - he can save the corresponding vectorgraphics (scalable) - and often with the graphics software (Adobe Illustrator) he can edit it analogously.
