The RAW Ornament is the successor and industrial counterpart of Ornament 1.
Holthinrichs Watches is a pioneer in 3D printed watches, and the RAW Ornament shows the industrial characteristics of this technique. Where the entire watchcase of the Ornament 1 is fully polished by hand, to give the watch a classic and timeless appearance, the stylistically contrasting RAW Ornament is designed by such that only selective details are polished to a high gloss finish. By showing the intrinsic aesthetics of the production process, Holthinrichs Watches aims to give the watch a contemporary look. The design of the RAW Ornament is inspired by the work of early modern architects, such as Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer and Eero Saarinen. Holthinrichs takes their distinctive expressive use of materials and structural clearness. RAW Ornament is completely designed and developed in-house.
The movement is visible through the caseback and completely hand finished in the Holthinrichs Watches Atelier to match the style of the watch’ case. The hands and dial have a satin finish and is produced manually in-house.
