Tangency Watch drawing inspiration from Euclid’s Geometry
Much like the founder of the subject Euclid realized in ancient Greece, The Tangency watch comes to life with the idea that any stable figure begins with a strong foundation.
The beauty of the this timepiece resides in its unconventional and geometrically diverse design.
Tangency Watch was inspired by a geometrical game. On the dial, one disc seems to revolve around a different center from the hour and minute hands; as insignificant as seconds might seem, they are the protagonists of this timepiece. Curious by nature, disciplined as few and eager for innovation, Escalona manages to convert mundane activities into delightful experiences. Due to what he likes to call “informed creativity”, his studio, based in Mexico City, provides tangible value to each project, achieving a common language in design no matter the context.
