Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has created Dressed, his first watch collection for Italian design brand Alessi.
Wanders designed each watch in the Dressed collection to have two sides to it: one visible and one concealed. The outward watch face has an understated design with a detailed flourish on the hour hand, typical of Wanders’ style. The reverse side of the watch features a concealed decorative surface, a hidden detail known only to the wearer.
“I wanted to design a simple watch with an interesting surprise.” “We made these very simple, beautiful watches with an interesting surprise,” Wanders explains. “The design of the watch is pretty straightforward: the band makes a really simple connection to the core of the watch and we kept the dial very simple.”
The elegant bracelet watch collection by Marcel Wanders for Alessi has eight different references in different combinations of straps and finishes. To highlight the exception in black (metal wristwatch, black and stainless steel).
Each watch comes with a leather strap and a 40mm case that is equally popular as a men’s or women’s watch.
