- the story
Time ticks by in a wave of color with the Chroma Watch that features a kaleidoscope dial modeled after the Munsell* color measurement. While Chroma's numerals change colors every second, the colors of the hour hand merge from one palette to another, gradually creating beautiful hues of the color spectrum. Designed by Laurinda Spear. Made in China.
Stainless steel mesh adjustable band. Water resistant to 150 feet. Battery included.
*The Munsell Measurement is the standard measure of the three dimensions of color: tone, value and color purity.

- the maker
In addition to her many buildings and interior design projects, Laurinda Spear designs products for everyday living. Her inspiration for Free Time draws from the work of Arquitectonica by translating architectural elements into everyday applications.
Laurinda, FAIA has practiced architecture since 1977 with her husband Bernado Fort- Brescia, in their firm, Arquitectonica. Together, they have pursued an unconventional modernism that is both abstract and romantic, playful as well as dramatic, and forceful. First recognized for its flamboyant contributions to Miami's skyline in buildings such as the Atlantis, "the building with a hole in the middle," Arquitectonica has earned a reputation that has spread throughout the world. Today, Arquitectonica has representative work in the United States, Europe, South America and Asia.
Laurinda's architecture and design projects, widely covered in the international press, have received a number of awards. Among them, AIA Honor Awards, Awards for Excellence in Architecture and Progressive Architecture Design Awards. collection
