PANAMA take five Automatic Watch Earns Highest Distinction with Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016
One of this year’s outstanding products, the PANAMA take five timepiece by Spessart-based watch company Rainer Brand has been recognized by the Red Dot jury with its coveted Red Dot: Best of the Best award. In 2016 this highest single distinction will go to a mere 1.5% of all entries within the international competition. Manufacturers and designers from 57 countries nominated some 5,200 products for recognition. The PANAMA take five model and its unsurpassed quality of design made a compelling impression on the jury and give new assurance to Rainer Brand’s position among the global leaders in product design.
The Red Dot Award’s independent panel of experts – consisting of 41 respected designers, professors of design and industry journalists – acts as the jury and judges each individual entry according to such criteria as degree of innovation, formal quality, functionality and environmental compatibility. The jury confers its highest single distinction – Red Dot: Best of the Best – for design that is genuinely trailblazing. Only the best within a given category receive this honor.
