How can a modernist reconcile temporal unreality with the need to show up to the 10:30 Marketing meeting "on time"? By wearing our Modernist Movement watch. Inspired by the revolutionary kinetic art of Alexander Calder, it suspends time while simultaneously revealing it. Stationary yellow and black shapes point to 12 and 6 o'clock, and the blue, red, and silver shapes tell the hour, minute, and second. The sturdy black NATO band and water-resistant stainless steel case beautifully handle our consensual hallucination of matter, but we're not going to get into that right now. Made in China.
