A timepiece that “tells time twice.”

Hong Kong-based watchmaker and design studio Anicorn has teamed up with New York graphic designer Ji Lee to create a “Redundant Watch” exclusively for the MoMA Design Store. The timepiece is a visual pun on time-telling, as the hands point to smaller clock hands that represent the hours by their positions. As the name implies, the watch “tells time twice.”

The Redundant Watch is inspired by Lee’s 1993 clock which “introduced a layer of friction to the otherwise simple act of telling time — it forces you to stop and appreciate the moment.” Anicorn transformed the initial clock design into a minimalist timepiece, complete with a 38mm stainless steel case and sleek leather band. The hour and minute hands come in blue and yellow, while the crown arrives in bright red — a subtle take on a primary colorway.

Take a closer look at the timepiece above. Retailing for $190 USD, the Redundant Watch is available to purchase now on MoMA Design Store’s website.
