Jacob Jensen’s Beowatch


Jacob Jensen, one of the top designers of Bang & Olufsen's hi-fi components since the late sixties, created the Beowatch (a combination wristwatch and remote control) for the Beocenter stereo system that he designed for B&O in 1986. The Beowatch's angular curvexing reminds me of the Sinclair Radio Watch. Incredibly scarce today, the Beowatch appears to have only been produced for a very short period of time.
