The Trio of Time - The Spinning Beach Ball by JK

Inspired by the iconic symbol, this watch embodies a perfect blend of technology, style, and playfulness, it is how we used to present the concept of "Wait" back to the 90s. (At the same time the nightmare to some designers maybe?) 



Capturing Embrace & Anticipation

The spinning beach ball represents moments of transition and the promise of what's to come. Drawing inspiration from this symbol, our team set out to create a timepiece that captures the essence of this iconic image.

The bearing of the watch features a mesmerizing pattern reminiscent of the spinning beach ball, with vibrant colors and dynamic movement. Each swirl represents the anticipation of what lies ahead, reminding wearers to embrace the present while looking towards the future.

Infusing Design with Familiarity and Playfulness: Unleashing the Dynamic
Motion Experience

This design inspiration brings a touch of familiarity and playfulness to the
watch, creating an engaging and visually appealing experience for the user.
When the watch is in use, the bearing comes to life, mimicking the spinning
motion of the beach ball, and the iconic symbol of "Loading". The spheres
rotate smoothly and fluidly, creating a mesmerizing visual effect that adds a
unique character to the watch's overall design.


Perhaps we don't have to wait too long nowadays, just spin and let it load
sometimes!
