Hip Hop Watches Challenge
Binda group and Desall invite you to design the new watch Hip Hop Hero 4.0, a customisable product with a minimal and distinctive design, suitable for every moment of your daily life.
Established in 1985, Hip Hop introduced the first single-piece watch with the case integrated in the strap, made of scented rubber, which became a symbol of the 80s. Now, at 10 years since its last restyling, Hip Hop invites the international community to design the new iconic watch Hip Hop Hero 4.0, able to represent the distinctive traits and the unmistakable character of the brand, through a unisex product with interchangeable strap and case.
