First Look! Philippe Starck Minimalist Watch Collection Unveiled

New Never Before Seen Philippe Starck Watches

Watchismo is proud to be the first store on the planet offering the new Minimalist Analog Philippe Starck design watches. A streamline case with black or mirror dials as the background for an elegant new hand display. Both hours, minutes and seconds 'churn' off balance giving a windmill or other power generating effect. Very simple, very Starck!
