Stone Watches Have the Smooth and Irregular Form of a River Rock

As far as analog watches are concerned, I think we're all used to seeing perfect circles, and occasionally other rational geometries of the rectangular variety. The Stone Watch appears to be a hybrid of both of those, yet it completely abandons that purist symmetrical form to which we've been accustomed.

When Denis Guidone designed this wristwatch for Nava, his inspirations were rocks that have been worn by weather and the tossing and turning on shorelines and in riverbeds. The pebble shapes are thus misshapen, but very smooth, and they make for whimsical black and white dials to dress up one of three leather bands. More playful peculiarities of the Stone Watch are its 3 o'clock placement of the crown and the off-centered pinning of the hour and minute hands.
