[GB] Fox Lab - Time 80 Reforged

(1/123) > >>


About Time 80 Reforged

Time 80 was the second design of Fox Lab back in 2017.
It has also become an iconic keyboard design of Fox Lab.
Time80RE kept most of the original weight design.
The clock has become thinner now and has a tempered glass cover.
The front height of the keyboard has greatly reduced for optimizing for comfort.
The ratio between the top and bottom cases has been adjusted for a cleaner side view.
