The PXR-5 was orig­i­nally launched in 2005 as one of Bri­tish de­signer Michael Young’s first projects af­ter re­lo­cat­ing his stu­dio to Asia. Its fu­tur­is­tic stain­less steel case fea­tures a dig­i­tal LCD dis­play and is akin to a belt buckle that is at­tached to the wrist by a util­i­tar­ian, wo­ven ny­lon strap.

In 2015, a decade af­ter its in­tro­duc­tion, the PXR-5 is in­cluded in the per­ma­nent col­lec­tion of VOID Watches, an in­de­pen­dent Scan­di­na­vian wrist­watch brand launched by Swedish de­signer David Eric­s­son. The legacy of this icon­o­clas­tic de­sign time­piece lives on through an in­cred­i­ble new col­lab­o­ra­tion.
