For €399,00, the KLOK-01-KLINK-01 is quite an achievement. It may be a quartz based watch, but the ingenuity in the way the face works and the clever strap attachment is like nothing else in the entire watch industry.

KLOK-01 is inspired by the circular slide rule, a once ubiquitous calculating instrument. A slide rule is a mechanical analog computer usually comprising three scales, one of which slides between the other two. In a similar way, the dial of KLOK-01 is composed of three circular disks — one each for the hours, minutes and seconds — which rotate at different speeds to slide past each other. The beauty of this temporal object is in its elegant display of time and its counter-clockwise movement.
