Templates, 2017

Michael Young for CIGA design

IF Gold Award 2017

Templates is a watch designed to integrate the movement and face into one piece. This enables it to be dropped inside the casing and be fixed as a whole. Traditionally a rear movement sits beneath the numeric front face, however, by redesigning the traditional concept and turning the front side of the movement into the watch dial itself Templates offers a unique entry point into the precision watch market.

“This watch takes a holistic approach to design, signifying a new interpretation of a classic masterpiece. Appealing sensory details such as a visible movement and a tactile crown winder will delight the user, while the curved face lends a softness to the appearance. Michael Young has succeeded in imparting this watch with a unique experience.” iF Jury statement.
