Time Dimension clock
However, Donner talked a lot about a creation of his one: "Time Dimension", a watch different from any other - a watch with discs instead of pointers. It's not that I loved it (it's too "high tech" for me) but, as I'm currently reading a book that talks about the impact of beauty and design on our relation with objects, I found it interesting because, as the author claims, this watch give us a softer and more peaceful perception about time, there's no tic-tac or agressive pointers, only a super natural design, making time pass by as smoothly as the earth spins, in a game of shadows that reminds of sunset and dawn.
Wouldn't be interesting if the color scheme could change according to the time of the day? I'd like to see a sunset on my fist, everyday!
