Svalbard watches

The Svalbard Watch company have just added more models to their already extensive range of 24-hour watches:

Svalbard july 2018

The two regulator designs show the hour hand in the top small dial, with 12 at the very top; the large hand is the minute indicator. This design, once used on precision clocks, is based on the sensible idea that you probably already know what the hour is, and are looking at your watch more to get some idea of the precise minute.

A description of all new models is available on the official Svalbard website. You can use the code “24HOURTIME24” to get a 7% discount.

Svalbard 2018 range

Today’s the Winter Solstice in the UK, and the sun was visible for about 6 hours. Up in Svalbard, Latitude 78°13′N, longitude 15°38′E, though, the sun hasn’t risen for weeks, and won’t be seen again by anybody living there until February 15, 2018.

The Svalbard Company’s watches are inspired by the beautiful, extreme and challenging landscapes of Svalbard and are valued more for their elaborate artistry, aesthetic appeal and fashionable design than for simple timekeeping. The Svalbard company has released new models for 2018:

One of the models is the “Nigra Turo”:

No watch klatovy

This is a copy of the 24-hour dial on the lower clock on the Nigra Turo or Černa věž (the Black Tower) located in Klatovy city in the Czech Republic; “black” because it’s been burnt several times since it was built in 1557. Details are scarce, but some sources suggest that one of the clocks was designed by famous Czech inventor and engineer Josef Božek (1782-1835) during the early 19th century. The current dial bears the date 1924: this may be a new or repaired clock, or perhaps just the dial was renovated.

Here are some more watches from No-Watch:

Todd & Marlon watch on Kickstarter

With 11 days to go, there’s still time to fund this Kickstarter project and get a limited edition 24 hour watch:

#YOURTIME Swiss Made Luxury Watch

From the blurb:

… #YOURTIME is a 24-hour watch. The dial shows the anti-meridian (am) hours on the left hand side and the post-meridian (pm) hours on the right hand side. The zenith for the sun is reached at 12:00 and is at the top of the dial as indicated by the applied silver sun icon. Most of the commercially available 24-hour wristwatches are based on a 0-23 or 1-24 numbering system and do not show all numbers (they mix numbers and marks). On the other hand Todd & Marlon watches are based on the Double-XII system and all hours are clearly indicated – remarkably this is the only readily available double-XII watch in the market.

Thanks to this design Todd & Marlon have combined the best of two worlds. #YOURTIME watches offer all the benefits of a 24-hour watch and at the same time they still have a close reference to the way people talk about timing while clearly indicating the time. Most people still refer to time on a 12 hour scale making reference to a.m. vs p.m. or morning vs evening. In other words #YOURTIME watches talk the language of the bulk of people while offering them the benefit of a 24 hour watch. On top, the clearly indicated hours and minutes/seconds can facilitate the move from a 12 hour based system to the 24 hour system.
