Formex and Worn & Wound have joined forces to create a timepiece that transcends the boundaries of conventional design. The Formex x Worn & Wound Essence Sector 39 Chronometer is not just a watch; it’s a journey into an alternate universe inspired by sci-fi classics like Gattaca and Blade Runner.
This limited edition collaboration features the familiar Formex Essence 39 in steel, but with a twist. The dials and handsets take a bold departure from Formex’s modern aesthetic, embracing mid-century sector dial designs. The result is a strikingly anachronistic yet captivating timepiece that pays homage to a different timeline of technological evolution.
Despite the retro-inspired appearance, the Essence Sector 39 Chronometer retains its technical prowess. With a 39mm diameter, 100m water resistance rating, and the signature suspended case for added comfort, it offers the same performance as the regular model. Powered by an automatic, chronometer-grade Sellita SW200-1 movement, this watch ensures precision and reliability.
The essence of this collaboration lies in the subtle details. Choose between white, blue, or gray dials, each adorned with contrasting accent colors and unique design elements. Limited to just 150 pieces, with 50 in each color variant, these watches are a true collector’s item.
Available now for $1,590, the Formex x Worn & Wound Essence Sector 39 Chronometer invites you to experience timekeeping in a whole new dimension.
