Tom Dixon introducing the Block Watch

Block Watch is available now.

Block is the first watch by London designer Tom Dixon featuring a distinctive square case stamped from a piece of stainless steel or brass and a circular face with etched numerals and markers.

The watch's hour, minute and second hands are powered by a high-quality Swiss movement.

The timepiece is available in either stainless steel or rose gold (plated) with matching mesh straps, or in brass with a chunky brown leather strap.

"I'm trying to produce something with an expressive neutrality," says Dixon in the movie we filmed at his studio in London. "I tend to try and work out what I can strip out without losing character."

He continues: "I wanted to make sure that you can tell the time. With all too many contemporary watches you really can't tell what time it is."
Dixon goes on to explain that the mesh strap featured on two of the watches refers to his childhood. "It's got this chain link bracelet, which I guess is a reference to when I was growing up - Kojak, maybe."
"It's just the minimal elements that you need to make a watch, all reduced to their bare essentials," he concludes.
