Copy Watch

by Ilwhan Ahn

A new watch every day.

Copy Watch is a clay wrist watch to capture the unique patterns that surround us. A Corian watch face that holds a lump of clay can be detached from the Velcro wrist strap and used to take impressions of any available surface. This imprint can then be worn as a fashion accessory, a short-term physical memory, or a prop for show-and-tell.

Corian, Velcro One-Wrap, clay
watch face: 1.7”x1.7”x.5”
