QLOCKTWO by Biegert & Funk
The time in words on your wrist
For the first time, Biegert & Funk is exhibiting a completely new kind of wristwatch, it does not show the time with hands or digits. Time is indicated on this purist watch as readable text, turning it into a statement: “It is half past nine”. The square watch face has a uniform grid of 110 letters. When the stainless steel button is pressed, words light up in unexpected places which describe the time. The initially random order of the characters lends this wristwatch a mysterious aesthetic. “QLOCKTWO makes you aware of the moment. Showing the time becomes an interesting experience for the owner,” explains Andreas Funk from the design duo Biegert & Funk.
The design is minimalist and precision crafted, its form reduced to the essentials. The high quality brushed square stainless steel casing measures 35 x 35 mm.
Together with the time, it also displays the calendar day or seconds. “It is operated by a single push button and could not be more simple: one push to display the time, two for the calendar day and three for the seconds,” says designer Marco Biegert.
In a square there is a grid of 110 letters. When the stainless steel button is pressed, words that describe the time light up in unexpected places. Whenever you look at your QLOCKTWO W watch it is a new experience.
ABOUT BIEGERT & FUNK
The Biegert & Funk design agency was founded by Marco Biegert and Andreas Funk and develops products, campaigns and applications. The designer duo has always been fascinated by time. While only teenagers they already had the idea of a clock that shows the time like people talk to each other. Besides their design agency, they pursued several product ideas that eventually led to developing QLOCKTWO®. When they set up clock production in a former jewellery factory they fulfilled their dream of making a product of their own which has turned into such a success story that it has surprised even themselves.
Biegert & Funk has already won many well known design awards, including the Red Dot Award, iF Product Design Award, Focus Open Award, Good Design Award Chicago, Interior Innovation Award as well as several nominations for the Designpreis Deutschland. They also won one of the coveted awards from the Type Directors Club New York. In addition, Biegert & Funk was awarded the coveted Gold Award of the Art Directors Club Europe.

I have been buying watches from Watches.com for several years...always excellent, from customer service, to delivery...easy returns, if needed.
Outstanding Customer Service.

I had an unfortunate thing happen with the links for two of the watches I ordered (the issue was with Nixon, not with watches.com just to be absolutely clear) and after being left stranded by Nixon I contacted Angela with watches.com who fixed the problem and was friendly and courteous the entire time. I would have 100% been busying the rest of my watches from them due to her efforts alone but on top of their customer service being outstanding, the products arrived on time and looked absolutely gorgeous when unpacked. 5 stars doesn't do them justice.

Great selection of watches, really good prices. Fast shipping is just as important to me when buying from someone. Watches.com has fast shipping, and good communications on that shipping. I would highly recommend watches.com to anyone who has a watch fetish. Thanks.
Great quailty and excellent price

The price was so good that I was worried it would be something different than it appeared, but the watch was exactly what I had seen elsewhere for much more money. Great quality and excellent price. It was here lightening quick! I will definitely use watches.com again.
