Will Alsop Alessi Daytimer Watch - Polygonize Your Wrist!
Will Alsop has been designing buildings and public spaces in chic European locales for decades - Hamburg, Marseilles and London to name a few. Recently he has begun lending his designing eye to Alessi, an Italian design firm responsible for a wide range of products too high-end and/or cerebral for me to understand much less afford.

If you are looking for something cool and ergonomic that reminds you a bit of the 80’s yet don’t want to wave your nerd-flag too high with calculator watch then this is the timepiece for you. At $118.48 (83 Euro) it is a small price to pay for a modernized piece of your childhood… if you were a child in the 80’s. Wow, having to preface that makes me feel old.
