CIGA Design, joining hands with Paul Cohen, one of Australia's most-awarded industrial designers, launches the world's first watch with black hole design concept to enlighten people with the universe and the black hole.
Concept of time in the BLACK HOLE
As early as the end of the 18th century, British scientist John Michel proposed for the first time the existence of "black stars" with very strong gravity. In 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope released the first photo of black hole in human history. Mankind has never stopped exploring the universe.
This watch, designed in August 2019 as a tribute to people for their unrelenting scientific research efforts in the discovery of the black hole, incorporates the obscure principles of black hole in its unique design that highlights interstellar mechanics aesthetic.
