Artist and designer Matthew Waldman returns to Karmaloop with the latest drop of Nooka watches.
Founded in 2005 as somewhat of a side project, Waldman started Nooka as an opportunity to incorporate his graphic design skills in manufacturing a personal favorite watch that Seiko had since discontinued. Thus, the Zoo model was born (similar to the model pictured above left), and with the encouragement of fellow designers and his first client, the Museum of Modern Art, Waldman pursued Nooka designs as a full-time venture and we could not be happier he chose to do so.
Premiering at Karmaloop just weeks ago with the Zoo, Zot and Zehn pieces, the latest Nooka release features new looks, fresh colors and more of the oh-so-clean designs Nooka is known for. Karmaloop staff favorite, The Aluminum Zot Watch in Black (above, right), presents a time-telling design that has heads spinning in place of the boring ol' minute and second hands. The two left columns display hours one through six and the two right columns show hours seven through 12, while the stripe at the bottom tracks the minutes and seconds, also displayed in the box at the bottom right. Idiot-proof. Additional features, such as chronograph capability, an alarm and water resistance make this piece a surefire keeper.
