Details

This is Handsome Co's first independent watch design.  The Taxi Watch was designed as a minimal utilitarian object with clean lines and an understated aesthetic.

 

Taxis the world over are symbols and tools of culture and society. The upholstery that Handsome Co. utilizes from Hong Kong taxis still bears the wear and tear that occurs over time giving it a sense of cultural awareness. The material that is used has a story, a story that has been engrained in the design of each and every watch.

 

Many of the craftspeople that Handsome Co. employs to manufacture these watches tend to be women who have lost employment opportunities due to factory outsourcing to mainland China. Handsome Co. gives these people an opportunity to utilize their skills in a fair work environment.

 

Our signature use of discarded vinyl upholstery from Hong Kong taxis has been taken further since the first taxi watch and now makes up the entire watch strap while the red, green and blue colour schemes are a nod to the colours of the taxis themselves.
