A creative and colourful watch, to encourage you to have fun with your time.

This watch is now sold out, however you can see the re-issued version of the Number Cruncher design here.

 

This playful watch was designed by artist and character designer Onorio D’Epiro. The monster has the hour in his hand and the minutes in his stomach.

Number Cruncher is a hungry monster, he stomps around cities on the hunt for tasty treats - he steals from clocks mostly, but he's not fussy - he’ll even eat cars and the odd person!

Number Cruncher is plucking the hours from the sky, while the minutes churn around in his stomach, mixing with all the debris of his rampage.


Onorio explains the inspiration that led to the design:  

“My fascination with monsters and weird, wonderful creatures stems from my childish imagination and a love of simple, bold design.

I’d previously worked on a collection that combined photographic imagery with my illustrations - I really like the contrast between the fine detail of the photography and the bold colour of the drawing.  

With Number Cruncher I wanted to try and tell a miniature story - the watch is a snapshot of a narrative and the viewer feels a range of emotions for the monster in his new surroundings. 

The idea that someone may be wearing this little rampaging creature stuck inside a city in a watch brings a smile to my face.”


Number Cruncher was printed and assembled by us here in London. Each colour on the components was printed in turn - the glasses alone have been through 12 separate printings.

The watch is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide, each is numbered on the case back. You can choose your favourite number from the lineup above.
