Imaginary Industrial Watches Brought to Life by Yuuki Fujita

0003-1478x877

Metalsmith Yuuki Fujita creates metallic objects inspired from imaginary worlds you might see in animated films (I’m thinking Howl’s Moving Castle). “I enjoy making art objects but I wanted to create something functional that you could use everyday,” said Fujita, unveiling her new watch collection. Each piece, an industrial hodge-podge of chimney-stacks, ladders and buttons, is a unique original. “I hope that my watches inspire the user to go out on an adventure, like the protagonist of a story,” Fujita wrote.

Fujita sells her watches for 30,000 yen (about $300) a pop.
