The English language is as poetic as it is utilitarian. We often find that words and phrases have more than one meaning. And oftentimes the convergence of phrases can lend itself to a unique and wonderful experience. The ice watch exemplifies the balance between descriptive and poetic phrasing. When one hears the term ice watch they’ll instantly think of ice.
The idea of a watch made of ice will almost certainly be laughed off fairly quickly. And instead one will think about coolness. And that’s where we see a convergence of two ideas. Because the watch obviously isn’t made of ice. But it is one of the coolest watches you’ll ever see. And just as importantly, it’s one of the coolest watches which anyone who knows you will ever see.
Because like many works of art it’s a conversation piece. It’s simply that the watch serves as both conversation piece and timepiece. People can rest assured that it provides the correct time. But it also provides that idea of coolness. But much like we’ve discussed, the concept of coolness is itself somewhat vague. What’s amazingly cool to one person might just be interesting to another. And that’s one of the reasons why there’s so much divergence in design among various iterations of the ice watch.
The ice watch really doesn’t have a single form factor that’s shared among every version. Instead there’s a multitude of different takes on the general concept. Some have a hefty and angular presence. Others go for a more flowing and liquid ideal.
And within the form factors one can find a great deal of variety in terms of color and aesthetics.The ice watch is obviously something that people will love for its reliability. But what will keep people coming back is the sheer ideal of coolness which it so exemplifies.
