A perfectly useless morning
It has sold out! Sign up to our waiting list here.
Relax and spend time with nature this autumn.
Lying down in the forest, immersed in nature, this watch encourages you to feel at peace with the world.
A perfectly useless morning was designed by illustrator Kristof Devos as a reminder to be present in the moment.
This watch is a companion piece to Kristof's previous design: A perfectly useless afternoon. As with the first, it's a gentle reminder that time spent doing nothing, is time well spent.
How to read the time:
- The delicate falling leaf points to the hour
- The circling bird shows you the minutes.
The tree trunks around the outside of the dial are positioned exactly where you'd expect to see numbers on a watch face, to help you read the time with precision.
A perfectly useless morning was designed in Belgium, then made by our small team right here in London, UK.
This watch is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide, choose your lucky number from the options above!
Kristof explains his design inspiration:
"Lying in the grass and looking at the birds in the sky is one of my favourite pastimes, I really wanted to put this feeling into a watch.
The figure in the design is somewhat put to the background, instead it is a falling leaf that shows the time, together with a bird for the minutes.
The timepiece is exactly what I had in mind and I’m glad we went all the way to overcome a couple of minor technical difficulties in the design.
I must admit, I also love the strap with the green stitches, it’s the perfect finish for A perfectly useless morning."
