Colour Venn

£ 595

Who needs numbers when you can use colour? 

This colourful watch uses three rotating discs to show you the hour, minute and seconds.

The discreet white line on each disc, tells you where each hand is pointing and so reveals the time.

Cyan: hour hand
Magenta: minute hand
Yellow: seconds hand

Where the discs overlap, new colours are formed, creating a constantly shifting palette of colour.

The Colour Venn watch is powered by a beautiful Swiss-made automatic mechanical movement, which is visible through the glass exhibition case back. This means it doesn’t have a battery. Instead, the motion of wearing your watch provides the power to wind it up and keep it running.

Available in either silver of black case, choose your favourite from the dropdown menu above!

Colour Venn was designed with Mark Champkins. With Colour Venn Mark wanted to explore the subtractive colour model which is the basis of printed colour:

"Cyan, Magenta and Yellow are the keys to recreating ANY colour on the printed page. Every shade and hue of colour in newspapers, magazines and printed material will be only ever be made up of a combination of CMYK - cyan, magenta, yellow and “key” (which is black) ink.

This is known as the “Subtractive Colour Model” as the four colours of ink “subtract” from the brightness of the white surface beneath.

Colour Venn uses Venn diagram style circles of colour cyan, magenta and yellow films with different diameters corresponding to the second, minute and hours. As each moves around, a continuously intersecting pattern of colour emerges, unique at every moment of the day".

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.
