Ophelia (Limited edition)

A watch to give you a fresh perspective. 

Ophelia was designed for us by Joshua Obeng-Boateng. The watch shows a face emerging from the water, with the body submerged below.

Our small team printed and painted the design on different layers, before assembling them by hand, right here in London.

Ophelia is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide and available exclusively from us.

How to read the time:

Two fish swim around the head, their position indicates the hours and minutes.

Joshua explains his inspiration for the design:

“This watch was designed partially as an ode to the John Everett Millais painting ‘Ophelia’.

In my work I’ve experimented a lot with drawing water and people in water and when I saw this painting it was a perfect fit for the journey I was on.

The central idea behind the watch is a celebration of water and the diverse symbolism it can take:

Water can equally be a potent symbol of death and mortality, as it is in Millais’ painting of ‘Ophelia’. Water can be used to represent life as embodied by the fish that swim around the head.

It can even embody both life and death simultaneously: as in spiritual practices such as baptism, which represent both the death of the old self and the rebirth as a new person.

This circularity - death and rebirth is echoed in the fish making their endless circuit around the face”
