The P on P “sexagenary cycle” wrist watch series is designed by the P on P artist Samantha Li. Featured with the Chinese letters indicating time in ancient China – ten celestial stems and twelve earthly branches – on both the dial and the self-winding rotor, it is also equipped with advanced and precise mechanical movement, giving an impression of merging tradition and modern technology in a perfect way.
The concept of Samantha’s design started when she was creating a new P on P art piece relating to the Chinese “Picture of SpringOx” (also known as “Chunniu Tu”), which is used in traditional Chinese calendar, to show people the long-lasting yet never-fading charm of the Chinese lunar calendar. The sexagenary cycle is used for reckoning time in ancient China. The combination of the two factors as the background, a small part of the art work is mechanized to rotate, creating an effect of misplacement visually.
Inspired by this art piece, Samantha is trying to point out the depravity or distortion of sense of time in modern society, even with technologies fundamentally changing our lifestyles. She hopes that there is an object which can remind people of seizing the time and introspecting their sense of time. The P on P “sexagenary cycle” wrist watch series is, therefore, created.
