What you will notice about the contemporary Sometimes watch is not only the simple shape, colour and face, but the function of the hands, particularly the second hand. These elongated white hands are juxtaposed against the black dial. The second hand aligns with the minute and hour for only a moment, moving independently and appearing as if out of sync with time itself. Perhaps making this its most interesting feature.
Sometimes it’s better to stop thinking about the time, whatever happens, it will not stop. Hours, minutes and seconds continue to play together.
I can really appreciate the minimalist approach to this design and although I have never been particularly fond of round faced watches, I do like it. But what do you think?

You might call a lot of graffiti artist out there street artists, but when I see the work of a guy like Escif, he’s my definition of a street artist. His work reminds me a bit of Marcel Dzama, with his minimal color palette and potentially deep meanings to his pieces. I love that he chooses a different number of subjects, mundane things that most people can understand. It’s also so interesting that he chooses to do his paintings on public spaces, that they’re meant to be momentary, that at any time they could easily be painted over.
I’d suggest checking out this interview he did with Unurth which gives some insight on Escif and what he’s about.
