86400 / Wrist watch

86400
86400

86400, the watch designed with pure, simple and elegant qualities, is named by the idea of the sum of time per day that we actually share everyday. A common saying that “Time is money”, it's a symbol of wealth that is fair and equal to everyone. Hence a metaphor of “Time bank” that sees 1 second as 1 dollar is manipulated in this project. The philosophy behind is to design beyond form and function, covert the concept into our most familiar time-related object – watch, and provide not only the idea of time we knew, but a reminder that uses a different perspective to remind people of taking advantage of the wealth of godsend, time.
