Alfex wins Good Design Award

September 2005

After 2001 and 2003, the Swiss ALFEX brand has now gained the prestigious award for the third time: another bangle watch by Alfex Switzerland has won the Good Design Award of The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, the world’s oldest and most prestigious design prize.

The Two Time Bango is an advanced version of the spectacular Bango-Time from the house of Alfex Switzerland which breaks entirely new ground with its combination of design and function. Still further proof of the Swiss ALFEX brand’s spirit of innovation and design expertise!


Two-Time Bango

A typical feature of this model is the pop art arm band - unconventional, trendy yet at the same time understated and highly expressive, embodying an exceptional choice of material and formal language. Set softly in a super-elastic fine rubber bracelet the two dials show the time in Zürich and New York, Tokyo or Rio. The ergonomically shaped open bangle fits the wrist with a supple and feather-light touch and is a sure eye-catcher with its double watch effect. From the Swiss precision watch movement with fine-brushed dials to the two part elliptical shape of the stainless steel case, the TWO TIME BANGO is an innovative embodiment of the two time watch design. Its relaxed elegance is ideal for trendsetters with a weakness for design surprises.

International awards have become a tradition at Alfex. Alfex design repeatedly reveals a unique formal language and choice of materials. Behind every Alfex watch stands an intensive styling process: a long road must be travelled from the first drawing via hand-made prototypes to the detailed implementation. That is the distinctive feature of Alfex design quality and the work done by the design team is repeatedly rewarded by prestigious awards – including this year’s Good Design Award.
