The hour is told by the large blue shape. The minute, the smaller red shape with a hole in it to help point more accurately. The silver shape is the second hand, constantly spinning.
The crystal features a yellow object at the 12 o’clock mark. The face’s black object marks 6 o’clock. Together, these add depth that adds to the “mobile” feeling.
By suspending forms that move with the flow of air, Calder revolutionized sculpture. Marcel Duchamp dubbed these works mobiles. Rather than a solid object of mass and weight, they continually redefine the space around them as they move. Calder’s subtle balance of form and color resulted in works that suggest an animated version of paintings by friends such as Joan Miró. It is this suspended movement and motion that The Xela Watch seeks to duplicate.
Xela Watch has a 40mm (1.57″) diameter case and complemented with a 20mm wide fabric Nato Band. The minute hand is depicted by a red mobile and the hour hand by the blue. The black and yellow mobile are on the dial and lens respectively lending depth and a 3 dimensional feel to the watch.
