Japan has always been revered for its avant-garde designs, clean, yet structural aesthetics, and daring interpretations of Western culture. From award-winning designer Yohji Yamamoto’s collection of signature angular jackets and relaxed pants to Matohu’s symmetric Kimono’s and Junya Watanabe’s beloved copious tweeds, there are mounds of Japanese creations worth delving into. It is also common knowledge that quite a few designs of Japan, create apparel which reveal architectural influences, such as Yoshikazu Yamagata’s bold knitted creations. With that being said, a new line of watches is taking over the Japanese scene and seeping through the American market – Quest and Quality’s (Q&Q) Time for Everyone, is bringing ‘time’ to fashion in a bold new way.
To enhance manageability, Q&Q’s line has a distinct classic look, which gives you the option to match watches drenched in solid colors with almost anything. From yellow and blue, to checkered patterns to match that of tweed apparel, to bright red and white selections, the possibilities are endless. Anchored in sleek metal and with Quest and Quality’s insignia, it’s no wonder it attracts men and women -alike.
What makes this product different from any other you may ask? Well, unlike many of its counterparts, Q&Q has brings an affordable, solar-powered watch to the forefront. When you think solar-powered, the terms “bulky” and “coarse” come to mind, as over-sized solar panels are the first things people think of. But Q&Q has developed a time machine that runs off of the sun for 3.5 months after one charge. For all of the eco-friendly fashion lovers, all pieces are crafted from virgin and recycled materials.
Aside from the fact that you will be paying pretty reasonable price at $40 per watch, you can also rest easy knowing that a portion of the proceeds from you purchase will go to a respectable charity. Q&Q has partnered with Table for Two, to ensure that proceeds will go to this non-profit which delivers meals to children in Africa and Asia.
As Q&Q has recently launched its e-commerce for United States consumers, you now have the opportunity to try them out for yourself.
