Fortis Unisex Limited Edition Frisson Art Watch by Rolf Sachs
Feeling a chill all the time? Better stay away from this amazing new watch from Fortis. The Limited Art Edition “Frisson” by Rolf Sachs was inspired by the condensation of an iced vodka glass just out of the freezer. Cool!
Breathtaking New Interpretation of “Cool”
“Frisson” is in fact french for chill or shiver and perfectly describes the icy look of this timepiece with its frosted mineral crystal, luminous blue hands and transparent silicon strap. Softly breath upon the glass and it will clear up to expose time. On the dial, you will realise another unusual element in the design of Rolf Sachs. He used handwritten numerals instead of the typically bold graphics.
Fortis has a long tradition of collaboration with well-known artists to create special, limited edition “art watches” that are based on proven Fortis mechanisms.
Already, well known artists such as Michael Mattern, Andora and Rolf Sachs have created memorable designs that capture the imagination. Now, the well known German architect and industrialist Rolf Sachs has created the Frisson, a spectacular new “art watch” for Fortis that surpasses the innovative and humorous “IQ” Watch, which he introduced with Fortis in 2008.
Chill or Shiver in French
The watch has a special finish on the mineral glass crystal that resembles an iced vodka glass just out of the freezer. Sachs wants to encourage the wearer to physically interact with the watch by wiping a wet finger over the dial or breathing on it to get a clearer view through the frosted glass. This breathtaking design literally changes in appearance every time you touch it. The moisture of your breath brings clarity to the dial for just a moment, before it returns to being semi hidden by a veil of icy frost.
