Celebrating 40 Years Of Advancing Watch Culture

Since setting up our first boutique in 1979, we’ve dedicated ourselves towards one thing: sharing our passion for watches. And whilst it’s our 40th, we’re more excited for what’s yet to come.

In celebrating the passage of four decades of ‘time’, The Hour Glass has sought to challenge our relationship with the past, the present and the future by commissioning a series of objet D’arts from world-renowned contemporary artists and designers and presenting you a collection of commemorative watches from our esteemed partner brands.

Time is universal, yet entirely subjective.

The Hour Glass invited some of the leading figures in the fields of contemporary art and design to explore and engage with differing perceptions of time. Then Now Beyond presents these findings with a series of commissioned objets d’art that seek to challenge our relationship with the past, the present and the future.

The exhibition is presented on the occasion of The Hour Glass’ 40th Anniversary. For more details on the exhibition, please click here.

The Hour Glass Commemorative Art Objects

NOMOS Red Dot 2019 Commemorative Edition

In 2017 and 2018, we released our first two The Hour Glass Edition NOMOS Glashütte watches: the NOMOS Zurich and NOMOS Tangente The Hour Glass Edition. To celebrate our 40th, we've partnered up once again with the famed German watchmaker to release four new variants of a much-loved watch, the Tangente neomatik 39. Available with either Oracle bone-script or Hindu-Arabic hour markers.
