WHAT MAKES THE TELEMARK X-RAY SO ‘X-RAY’?

Telemark X-Ray Design

Recently a radiographer got in touch and asked us what made the Telemark X-Ray so ‘X-Ray’? This question is a great way to approach this upcoming release. There are certain aspects of the watch which are obviously modelled on the X-Ray theme, the zigzagging second hand is a good place to start. It is an attempt to mimic the passage of electromagnetic radiation through space as both a particle and a wave. Also, it looks pretty damn cool! That the colours of this watch centre around the pale blue end of the spectrum of visible light is a reference to X-Rays in popular culture but also towards the fact that they have relatively short wavelengths and high frequencies, meaning that if we could see them they would have a blueish colour. Let’s not forget that X-Ray today also implies reversed out and that is exactly what this watch is, a reversed colour variant of the white dialled Telemark. You are seeing the render again because we have not built the actual thing but this is happening very soon and you will be the first to know. Pre-orders are now being taken.
