NEW at Twisted Time is the Polygon watch from design house Chi and Chi. Brothers Stephen Chiu and Leo Chiu launched Chi & Chi in 2013, as a design studio based in Taiwan; a place where they live, work and create. The Polygon watch is the first to come from the design duo and it certainly doesn't disappoint as a modern and unique timepiece with special geometric features. The elements on the watch are designed with simple geometrical forms consistently and unlike the usual round contours of regular watches, the 24-cut case and dial present the time in a distinctive aesthetic way which enriches the sense of touch as well as the sense of sight.
