  • The timeless form of the Vespa motorino blends both masculine and feminine elements as well as modern form with vintage utility.  The story of how a humble utilitarian WW2 scooter became a fashionable design icon served as the inspiration for this unique timepiece. 
  • The project began with a lifestyle study which lead to a story about women and urban travel.  The Vespa was the perfect touch point for a story about women, travel and iconic beauty.
  • Meanwhile another story was developed around flea market finds and vintage pocket watches.  Both projects went to sampling but ultimately the Chelsey story lead to a more interesting result.
  • These renderings show a sketch presentation of the Chelsey (Cafe Racer) and Vintage Victoria concepts.
  • Initial renderings for Chelsey as a Chronograph with a 7link bracelet.
  • After several seasons and many rounds of sampling, Chelsey emerged (name changed due to legal reasons) with a multifunction day / date and 24 hr clock movement and a concave ring of Swarovksi crystals.
