Jean-Michel Folon’s three watches for Swatch, Le Temps (GZ108), Voir (GZ109) and Perspective (GZ106) possess the graphic, bold simplicity of his popular designs. Their blue plastic straps lead the eye to the dials, printed with scenes that walk a fine line between abstract and figurative forms, shaded with coloured-pencil blues, greens, yellows and occasional reds. Absent all numerals, the dials feature slender hour and minute hands in strong red, yellow and blue. Masterfully balanced in terms of formal composition, these three works are an open invitation to explore the artist’s illustrated, animated and creative perspective on contemporary urban life.
