Beam me up!

£ 225

This playful watch was designed by French Author-Illustrator, Xavier Broche.

Beam me up! is a celebration of the unexplained: a visitor from outer space hovers above a farm, searching for life on our green planet...

A mischievous piglet in the field runs in an endless loop, trying to escape the beam from the UFO.

How to read the time

The time telling on the Beam me up! watch is integrated within the image:

  • The beam emitted by the flying saucer marks the minutes.
  • The position of the pig on the watch face marks the hours.

Xavier explains his inspiration behind the design:

“I wanted to describe an alien encounter in a playful way. I imagined how it would be for a simple pig to be at the heart of this historic event.

I found it funny to imagine the alien travelling endlessly across space searching for intelligent life, only to encounter a bewildered pig at the end of this epic journey!

Don’t worry about the pig though - he’ll outwit the alien in the end!”

Shipping guide for t-shirts

Our t-shirts are printed by us and shipped from our workshop in London. This means if you place an order for both a watch and t-shirt(s), they will be shipped together via an express service. Delivery times for these can be found here.

If you order a t-shirt without a watch, it will be shipped via a Royal Mail tracked service which usually takes a little longer. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.

Shipping guide for watch straps

If purchased separately from your watch, watch straps will be shipped with Royal Mail 1st Class / International tracked shipping.

This takes 2-14 working days depending on location. You can see a more accurate timescale when you input your address at the checkout.

Please note, during busy sale periods dispatch may take a little longer (this is quite rare).

These delivery times are a guide based on the carriers terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
