The Draftsmen 01-Scale watches are the first in a series of timepieces by Nendo that replicate graphic elements from ruler increments.

Thin lines of various lengths surround the face, with hour markers extending to meet numbers that sit above them like inch or centimetre indicators. These marks are printed directly onto the crystal rather than the face.

"We hoped our design would function like a tool to help wearers measure time as they would measure length," said the studio.

Two sizes designed for men's and women's wrists both have calf-leather straps that pass through deep 9.5-millimetre brushed stainless steel cases.

Dezeen Watch Store is unable to take orders from Asia due to an agreement with the manufacturer.

    Did I read it correct? Dezeen Watch Store is unable to take orders from Asia due to “an agreement with the manufacturer”.

    And Dezeen Watchstore is supporting such brands and manufactures. WOW (not).

      I live in Asia, what’s wrong with such agreements?

    Hmm what is wrong with the symmetry in the second render/image? The 12 O’clock is tilted to the right! Is it how it’s supposed to be?
