Designer Piet Hein Eek's Tube Watch D42
Designer Piet Hein Eek's starting point for the Tube Watch was a tube and an extrusion ring. Extrusion moulding is a technique involving forcing aluminium, or paste, through a mould, and the extrusion profile gives the material its shape. Piet devised a ring like this for the design of the watch face.
The precisely cut ring, met with high quality metals and simple brown leather band, gives the Tube Watch its refined, yet tough and industrial character.
