Japanese studio Nendo designed a wristwatch series inspired by the drafting instruments draftsmen use to prepare precise plans and drawings. The first watch, scale, borrows the layout of a calibrated ruler. The scale marks are printed directly on the crystal rather than on the face to emphasise the link to gradations.


Draftsman 01. scale will be sold at Seibu department stores in Japan exclusively from June 25 at a starting price of USD 160.
