AL8017 "Luna" battery-operated wristwatch designed by Alessandro Mendini for Alessi.
This brand new watch, with its original label and box, still has its crystal protective plastic.
Alessandro Mendini said of this watch: "I like the fact that this watch is named after the moon and expresses its calm roundness and quiet mystery.
Clocks are usually entirely rational instruments, designed almost exclusively to bring precision to our days. But this moon clock, with its image of serene roundness, inspires a peaceful, astral reading and a quiet progression of time, days, nights and seasons. As is sometimes the case with the moon, this watch also seems timeless."
Case finish bright orange dial
Orange genuine leather strap
Case diameter: 36 mm

Since Alessi has discontinued all of these watches, in addition to being beautifully designed and precisely manufactured, they are considered collectables as well as practical timepieces.
Alessandro Mendini (Milan, 1931–2019), the ‘creator of dreams’, was one of the great masters of postmodern design.
He worked for all the major brands of design and luxury items and gained the highest distinctions, and his work is currently exhibited in the most important museums. It has been a fruitful life of dazzling legacy. Without a doubt, he was much more than an architect, designer and thinker.
Alessi is the kitchen appliance manufacturer that created some of the most significant objects in our everyday lives. Established in 1921, Alessi has always stood out for the high quality of its products and its modern minimalism, which add a contemporary touch to any space. Alessi has remained at the cutting edge of design and innovation and continues to work with the most important modern designers, which is why it is currently considered ‘the’ Italian design factory.
