Ricochet

£ 345

Get lost in time with the Ricochet watch.

Ricochet is inspired by the world of the pinball arcade and was designed for us by Ryan Claytor.

The three metallic robots, engrossed in the action of the pinball machine were each gilded by hand in a different metallic foil palladium, 20ct. citron gold and 22ct. rose gold.

The scoreboard of the game displays the hours and minutes.

This watch has a jump hour movement, so you'll need to watch closely to see the hour change - blink and you'll miss it!

Ryan, who has a deep love for pinball, considers the links between the game and time:

“Pinball is essentially a game of timing: flip a fraction of a second too soon or too late and you'll miss your intended target.

In its more transcendent moments though, a game of pinball can almost mystically remove the player from any concept of time.

When engrossed in a game where shots are being hit, progress being made and previously locked achievements are realized, pinball has the capacity to transport the player out of time entirely.

Rest assured, though, that "Ricochet" will be a faithful temporal reminder once you resurface from this engrossing experience!”

Ricochet was a real labour of love to produce, each watch representing many hours of work.

The individual colours in the design were printed one by one, the metal foils were applied by hand, cleaned and backed with a varnish for protection.

The watches were then assembled and tested by our small team in our London workshop.

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.
