Competition: five Extra Normal Grande
watches to be won



Dezeen has teamed up with designer Ross McBride of Normal Timepieces to give away five Extra Normal Grande watches. watches-2.jpg

Launched at Tokyo Designers Week last year (see our previous story), the hour hands of Normal Timepieces are represented by a rotating disk with a slit removed, revealing the numbers on the watch face beneath.


This new version with a 38mm diametre will be launched at 100% Design Tokyo on October 30th.


This competition is now closed.

The five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter.


The following is from Normal Timepieces:


Ever since the Normal Timepieces brand was launched in 2006 with the release of the original Extra Normal series of watches, there have been calls for a version with a larger case.

The Extra Normal Grande features a new Ø38 mm case, with a slightly convex crystal, and screw-on case back. Like all watches and wall clocks in the Extra Normal series, the hour "hand" is actually a disk with the hand silhouette reversed out, exposing the passing numbers on the face beneath.

Movement: Miyota 2034 Japanese movement
Accuracy: -10 / +20 second / month
Water-resistance: 3ATM (to 100 ft / 30 m)
One year guarantee
