Tanto x Cambiare (Time for Change) by designer Franco Sargiani is a new Alessi watch that features an unique display. The short hand marks the passage of 24 hours while the long hand shows minutes. Such separate hour and minute displays can be seen on old European monastery clocks. Separate hour and minute displays were inspired by the old clocks seen on ancient churches in Europe. The display is unique: While the one long hand marks the minutes, the short hour hand in its own dial checks off the full 24 hours. Sargiani was born in Modena in 1940 and graduated from the Faculty of Architecture at Milan Polytechnic. His work ranges from civil architecture to industrial and interior architecture, from industrial design to corporate image organization.

"Grasping time as movement and expressing it as play through dynamic combinations of components. Roman numerals, the meridian, standard clocks, dots, lines, texture, colors, ways of formulation and graphic codes all express time . . . time for change." -Franco Sargiani
