The Riki Steel Clock is a bold design based on the contrast of black and white that's suitable for all interiors. 

One of two styles, featuring a numerical index with high visibility using twelve figures which are slightly bigger and needles which have splendid harmony with the length and thickness of the numbers. This piece is produced with fine details such as the subtle matte painting of the frame body, and the second hand is the same colour as the clock board.

Riki Watanabe (1911 - 2013) 

Considered one of the pioneers of post-war Japanese design, after graduating from the Woodcraft Department at Tokyo Higher School of Arts and Design (currently Chiba University),

Riki Watanabe joined architect Bruno Taut's office in Gunma in 1936. In 1949, he established his own design studio, and

quickly won recognition for his low-cost String Chair in 1952. His Torii Stool and Circular Center Table won

the Gold Medal at the Triennale di Milano in 1957. In addition to interior and furniture design Watanabe also designed clocks and watches.

His 1972 design for the Hibiya Dai-Ichi Life Insurance Company's pole clock is recognised as one of Watanabe's major works.
