The Anoma A1

If you think the Hamilton Ventura didn't quite get there, or the Cartier Pebble had one too many sides, the Anoma A1 might float your boat.

From Hoodwinkee
Anoma was founded by Matteo Violet Vianello, who previously spent four years at A Collected Man. While Matteo says his most direct inspiration came from Perriand's table designed in the 1950s, he's playing with some design elements familiar to watches.

Here's that Perriand table for comparison:

I guess the high cost of this watch is due to casting and machining costs of that case. And it's very shiny, lots of polished metal there. Chunky, too. More jewelry than watch, in my opinion.
