The Bottle Watch by Industrial Facility, a design firm based in London, England, is a timepiece that is modeled after a beverage bottle, hence its name. Specifically, it draws inspiration from the bottom of such glass bottles. Design Milk reports, "The unisex analog watch was conceived when the designers noticed that there are often exactly sixty of the nodules on any typical beer bottle. The function of the tiny raised extrusions is to avoid suction between the bottle and a flat surface."

Created for Italian accessories company Nava, the Bottle Watch by Industrial Facility is inherently minimalist. Tet these nodules add a nice touch of texture to the otherwise basic surface. It is available in four colors (brown, grey, green and blue). Stats for Notched Minimalist Watches Trending: Older & Average
