Blowball is a nostalgic watch, to remind you of your childhood.

The individual seeds on the watch face break away and come together at different points in the day.

Every time the watch reaches 12 o'clock the picture joins up to make a full dandelion head.

Two flies mixed in with the seeds point to the hours and the minutes.
Blowball watch sequence
Blowball was designed by Fanny Shorter and made by us in London. Every colour you can see in the design was mixed and printed, before the discs were cut and assembled one at a time.

Fanny Shorter is a designer and illustrator, her work is inspired by nature is usually on a large scale for interiors and products. So it was an interesting challenge to scale down her work to the small size of a watch face.

Blowball was originally released in a mini-edition of just 50 pieces back in 2013.
