Escape from your everyday reality and into the wilderness with this unique watch.

Artist printmaker Paul Wardski designed and printed Wanderlust.

With this striking design, Paul aims to inspire you to escape the pressures of day-to-day life and spend your time with nature.

Paul explains his thinking behind the design:

"Wanderlust to me is the innate desire for escape - an overwhelming feeling of wanting to join nature, to get lost exploring new landscapes and cross the mountainous wilderness.

Whilst hiking through the Austrian Alps, I was inspired by how dramatically the landscape changes through the day. This shifting of light and contrast, and the shadows floating over the mountain range gave me this real sense of time and space.

The motif of the mountain is based on drawings I made while hiking near the village Schruns in an area of Austria called Montafon. I was fascinated with how the landscape changed – in the morning there could be snow peaks on the summits that could turn into icy rivers by the afternoon."





Wanderlust is printed with a mix of grey and metallic inks that capture the unique changing pattern of light on the mountain. The bright contrasting colour in sky slowly changes to track from day to night. 

Each colour you can see in the design was mixed by hand and printed on to the watch individually, before it was assembled by hand in our London workshop.

Wanderlust is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide, each watch is numbered on the back of the case, so you can choose your favourite number from the options above.

Each watch includes a matching print, designed to be framed. All prints are signed and numbered by Paul Wardski.

How to read the time

How to read the Wanderlust watch

The crescent shape on the watch represents 12 hours, with the time running from left to right. To find the hour, you’ll need to check the position of the sun or moon inside the crescent shape.

At 6am the sun rises on the left. It reaches the middle of the crescent at midday, then continues until it reaches the last marker on the right at 6pm. After 6pm the moon rises on the left while the sun sets. The position of the moon then marks the hours from 6pm until 6am.

The minute hand is in the middle of the watch face, and this runs in the usual way.
