True British eccentricity and ingenuity is alive and well and currently on display at the MB&F M.A.D. Gallery in Geneva. The Gallery is showcasing the smile-inducing kinetic work of the British creative partnership Laikingland. Laikingland was co-founded in 2008 by two lifelong friends from the north of England, artist Martin Smith and engineer Nick Regan. Together, Smith and Regan work closely with invited international artists and designers to help transform their ideas into beautifully-crafted, limited-edition kinetic art pieces.
You are looking at a pre-release or sneak preview exclusive to Watchuseek from ultra cool Californian designed and Swiss made brand Xetum.

“It was fine, but I was so anxious I found it hard to focus on my work! I bet you were the same…” she jests with a wink and a smile.

“What do you mean relax?” she says in an incredibly stern voice. He can see she isn’t smiling any longer.
“Um, well, I was just thinking a long shower and watching that episode of Glee on the DVR sounded nice, why are you scowling?” He stands there, beginning to sweat as he searches his mind for what could be going on.
“Just like last year, Frank, just like last year.” She stands there tapping her foot and waiting for the light bulb to go on in Frank’s head. Just then she sees his face shift. Ding, there it is, she can see his understanding turn to horror at the thought of it. “What day is it Frank?”
“Son of a mongoose, it’s the 17th. Should I just sleep on the couch tonight?”
As another Monday dawns watch lovers need a stunning watch with which to console themselves, especially for those in the Northern hemisphere with autumn slowly yielding to the chill of winter.
