SOLGAARD Design Unveils the HEX Collection

HEX Watch

“‘Beautiful and better’ is our mandate” said founder, Adrian Solgaard. “Everything we create needs to have a benefit over traditional options. In this case, we spent two years designing and prototyping a watch that allows you to tell the time faster.”

SOLGAARD Design, known for its smart technology in travel and accessories has just unleashed their world-first hexagon shaped watch design.

HEX by SOLGAARD, a six piece collection, is aimed at individuals looking for a watch that stands out.

“‘Beautiful and better’ is our mandate” said founder, Adrian Solgaard. “Everything we create needs to have a benefit over traditional options. In this case, we spent two years designing and prototyping a watch that allows you to tell the time faster.”

“Sitting the hexagon flat side down was crucial – this simple detail is what makes all of the difference. Our brains can more easily distinguish the orientation of the watch is because of this – we call it gravitational logic. In addition, there are six flat sides to a hexagon, and six corners. 6+6 = 12 – one for each hour of the day. This makes it faster for our brain to associate the time with a certain corner of the watch.”

This feature is called glimpse-tech, making it possible to check the time without needing to raise ones wrist. This can help avoid the awkward social moment of checking time when in a meeting or even on a date.

“Rather than making an exclusive watch that costs thousands of dollars, we wanted to bring an exclusive watch to market at a reasonable price point.”

There are six different watches: three for men and three for women. Each watch comes with a story of its own; how it was inspired. The watches, all made from high-end stainless steel, come with genuine leather straps. A vegan friendly women’s option is also available with a metal mesh strap. Prices start at $199.
