"How can we live in the moment if it changes every second?

The Present is an attempt to answer that question.

I started making these timepieces in 2011 because seeing the moment within the broader cycles of life makes being present more accessible. I'm grateful to have found something so many people enjoy. The Present helps you discover a more meaningful way to experience time.
