INSPIRED BY NEW YORK CITY
THE NYC by 2(X)IST
Created for the confident, modern man, the NYC features a three-hand movement that floats freely between two watch crystals.
The effect? A multi-tiered timepiece that’s stunningly architectural.
Strap it on and the wearer senses that 2(X)IST is taking time to a 3-Dimensional level.

I have always been inspired by the rule-breakers; the pioneers… I grew up in New York and saw this rebel spirit all around me in the form of crazy architecture or the graffiti artists on the subway… New York is 3-dimensional, not only in form, but in spirit as well. So, for this watch I wanted to create a product that truly represented the spirit of New York City. Not a watch, but a sculpture that captures the DNA of NYC and the amazing people that make their statement there. I wanted to take high-design, usually reserved for expensive luxury watches, and make it available to everyone.Jason Wilbur, Designer
