London, UK Tuesday 13 December 2022 – Legendary designer Frank Stephenson has officially launched COSMOS, his first watch collection with quality watchmakers Time Concepts.
Stephenson, responsible for the design of some of the most exotic and iconic cars including Ferraris, Maseratis, McLarens, MINI and Fiat 500 models, has developed a design portfolio encompassing bold industrial design, new mobility projects such as eVTOL and outer space.
Creating COSMOS beautifully blends this expertise in futuristic new-age mobility with a passion for design excellence.
The initial series is named after the glittering metropolis of stars, with a purposeful design, accomplished with stunning and individually unique sparkling granite dials that conjure up views of the cosmic regions of space. All three hands appear to float unattached around the dial’s centrally located black hole.
The Frank Stephenson collection, part of the Szanto ICON watch series, features styling cues reflecting the designer’s monumental work within the automotive industry and his more recent contributions to new mobility design, with his logo featuring prominently on the dial and his signature on the back of the watch case.
The FS COSMOS is crafted with a stainless-steel case and case back with a highly scratch resistant domed K1 crystal. The dial features an original stylized font for the numbers at the four corners (0, 3, 6 and 9) that are printed with thick Superluminova lume for night glow. The watch has a soft, supple and ergonomically shaped silicone rubber strap with a bespoke designed buckle. A Japanese quartz movement from Miyota powers the watch and ensures years of highly dependable wear with zero reliability issues.
The watch is the first in a trilogy of designs inspired by Air, Sea and Land.
Frank Stephenson said: “It’s the age-old adage ‘car people are watch people’, so it was a natural step for me to get creative with timepieces too. It was very enjoyable designing COSMOS and I’m proud to debut it to all enthusiasts.
“The collection showcases the love I have for exceptional and emotionally charged design, just like what is required in designing world class cars. We hope that car enthusiasts and those that appreciate unique and compelling design will gravitate to my new watch collection and enjoy wearing them through all of life’s exciting adventures.”
