Keep time in style with the all-black steel Tube Watch D42, a collaboration between leading designer Piet Hein Eek and innovative design house LEFF Amsterdam.
In a world saturated with smartphones, we are constantly surrounded by the time. When presented with LEFF Amsterdam’s tagline, “Nobody really needs a clock”, Piet Hein Eek’s response was to create a timepiece so simple and refined that he was amazed it had not been done before.
The matte black dial of the minimalist Tube Watch is surrounded by a serrated ring with cog-like indentations and protrusions that indicate the hours, working to incorporate the time increments in to the body of the watch unlike any other model.
The precisely cut ring and the matte materials give this watch its refined yet industrial aesthetic, while the black lwatch strap is crafted from premium leather that will age beautifully over time.
Eindhoven-based Piet Hein Eek is a multi-disciplinary designer who continually evolves his practice. His combination of using unusual materials and uncommon but simple methods of working has become his signature style.
