The Overlap Watch from design duo Alvaro Alvarez and Maria Lopez is about perception and precision. The minute disc revolves and intersects with the hour disc every hour as the four-pointed center secondary disc re-aligns every 15 seconds creating a visual similar to that of early computer game design. Discreet, simple and clean—this minimalist clock concept is more complex than it seems.
