Dezeen Watch Store: this chronograph version of Record by Achille Castiglioni features a stopwatch and a date function and comes with two removable leather straps: one in yellow and one in purple.

The three chronograph dials count the seconds, minutes and hours when the stopwatch function is activated using the buttons on the side of the watch case. This men's watch has a 243mm long strap and a 40mm diameter case.

Castiglioni designed the Record watch in 2000 for Italian design brand Alessi, making it one of the last products he worked on. Record was originally designed with a white face, black markings and a red or black strap. See the full collection here.
