Intended to raise funds for medical research, independent watchmaker Ressence has just announced Time to Draw, a wristwatch design contest.
The contest calls for participants to design the dial of the Ressence Type 1 Slim wristwatch, and the winner will turned into an actual, one-off wristwatch – with the designer’s name engraved on the case – that will then be sold at Sotheby’s.
Proceeds will go to KU Leuven in Belgium, specifically to support the university’s COVID-19 coronavirus research programme that is working on a vaccine and advanced detection of the virus.
Taking part in the contest is easy:
- Download the Type 1 Slim templates from Ressence.com
- Get to work with any type of design tool – physical or electronic (there are no restrictions on design tools)
- Specify the exact colour of every component, including typography and luminous paint
- Submit the design by email before the closing deadline – 2:00 pm GMT on May 12, 2020
