Please note this is a Crowdfunding Hunt. While Grouphunt does not guarantee the promises as advertised by the creator, what we promise is to redistribute the goods to you as soon as we receive them, similar to if you placed the pledge on your own.

Introducing Hidden Time

In 2014 we released our first watch, the concentric disc Series 000, and were funded within 72 hours. In 2016, we launched the space-obsessed Series K452, and were funded within 24 hours.

Now, we’re back on Kickstarter to introduce our first international project, The Trio of Time, and release our third watch, Hidden Time.

The Trio of Time 

The Trio of Time (TTT) is our very first experimental world tour to explore how international creativity reinterprets the perception of time. 

We will collaborate with a local designer in three different cities around the world to create a timepiece together, which will be released here on Kickstarter. 

Each watch will feature a unique design that represents the designer’s view on passing time. And with each watch we will share our experience with the Kickstarter community; in fact, backers of each campaign will be able to vote on our next destination.

The first TTT collaboration: Hong Kong to Seoul

Our TTT journey begins in Seoul, Korea.

Seoul is a prominent design city in Asia. With a rich history and rapid growth rate, the city features abundant resources for art and design. Many talented designers have launched studios in the city, contributing to both the local industry and the world at large.

We met with industrial designer Jiwoong Jung, an artist as fascinated by time as we are. Jung’s product design work has been featured in the 2012 and 2014 Maison & Objet Paris exhibition, among others, and in international design publications.

Hidden Time, the vanishing timepiece

Hidden Time's watch face features a beautiful gradient display under a crystal covering where numbers are firmly printed. As hours pass, the hour gradient disc rotates and “hidden time” is revealed.

The watch helps you focus on time in the moment, using a modern interpretation of the camouflage effect to hide the passing hours.

“My research on how to naturally pass time began with how hiding occurs in nature, which led me to one of the best known examples––the chameleon’s protective color. Their defense mechanism is a kind of optical illusion, but a simple and effective way to have two things together naturally when superimposed.” ––Jiwoong Jung

  • Hi Grouphunt, may I ask if we are able to change the battery once the battery life is up after 45 months?
