SO
ICONIC

A dot and a line. PICTO takes the seriousness out of timekeeping,  showing time in the most minimalistic way.  Its decades-long history and defiant design have made it an icon amongst watches. And yet,  it is a  symbol of time in the most peculiar fashion. Taking the pressure away from timekeeping while celebrating the art of it at the same time. A staple like PICTO craves the attention of someone who defies the norm, who commands a double-take, and shakes things up. Maybe someone like you? PICTO is an inspiration to those who set their own agenda – to be less bound by the expectations and demands of time. To become an icon, you must first dare to stand out. Why not start with PICTO?

 


What time
is it?

PICTO challenges the idea of a classic watch having two watch hands and a numbered dial. Here, the hour is indicated by a dot on the rotating dial, while the minutes are indicated by a conventional hand. It is the technical design and art of minimalism that makes it unique. To this day, still.

Bankers

In 1961, Arne Jacobsen won the competition to design the new National Bank of Denmark and the building was completed in 1978 – 7 years after his death. The Bankers clock is designed in 1971 and hangs proudly displayed on the original bank hall wall.
The bank hall contains peartree panels, contrasting the entry hall in Norwegian marble, which stretches like a cathedral almost 20 meters up throughout the six stories.

The Danish National Bank is widely considered one of Arne Jacobsen's masterpieces.

Roman

In 1942 the City Hall of Århus in Denmark was unveiled. Arne Jacobsen designed the building together with Erik Møller, and the original design was without a tower.
A tower has no functionality and therefore does not fit into the design philosophy of Arne Jacobsen. But after multiple protests, the two architects saw no other option but to add a 60-meter tall tower.

Fortunately, it was because of this tower that we got the beautiful clock, Roman.

Station

In the middle of the 30s, a young Arne Jacobsen designed a house for H. J. Hansen which was the director of Lauritz Knudsen (a large well-known company in the electrical industry). The director spotted the talent in Arne Jacobsen and asked him to design a clock for his new home. Arne Jacobsen accepted the challenge and drew an alarm clock, which was his first industrial product design.

The clock was presented at the spring fair in Charlottenborg, Copenhagen 1939, and is the first industrial product design of Arne Jacobsen. Early in his career, simplicity and design lines were the characterizations of Arne Jacobsen's design.
