The Chroma was originally designed with the Munsell system in mind, but modified by parameters of the functional elements of a watch — twelve hours with indicators for hours, minutes, and seconds. The Munsell system was an excellent armature as it provided a method for us to use color to represent time. The field of hues tick clockwise to represent seconds passing, while the hour indicator is activated using value and chroma. In concert, this produced a kaleidoscopic effect and the watch face became a colorful depiction of mood and ambiance for different times of day. The biggest challenge was tailoring the ten hues of the Munsell system into the twelve hours of the day. Ultimately, we decided upon allowing the hues to exist as-is and having moments where two hues can visually intersect at one number.

Time pieces designed by Laurinda Spear for Projects Watches include the Chroma Kaleidoscope in Time, Free Time and Arquitectonica Ellipse. Design themes for the watches use architecture as inspiration. The Chroma Kaleidoscope in Time features numerals that change color every second using the Munsell Color System, the hour hand colors merge from one color palette to another more gradually creating beautiful hues of the color spectrum. The Free Time face is made up of three concentric circles rotating clockwise with each gap in the circle communicating the precise time. The hour, minute and seconds are defined by the outer, middle and inner rings respectively. The Arquitectonica Ellipse features a retro-futuristic design, nostalgic for the early 1960’s when the world was a more future-loving place.
