The Analog Watch Co has recently begun a Kickstarter program to subsidize the dispatch of their most up to date watch. The Philadelphia-based watch company has just made a name with the Carpenter’s Watch, which is the world’s just wooden watch with an adaptable wood band, and it’s a blockbuster in the MoMA Design Stores. Presently they’re coming with another “nature-inspired” watch, altogether made of marble, and called the Mason Watch.
Analog Watch Co says that the Mason Watch is “the world’s first stone watch with a strong body and face made of genuine marble” and that could well be so. Anyway we might want to treat you to a short history exercise: in 1985 the Swiss brand Tissot originally presented a watch made in stone; it was made from a strong piece of Alpine rock. Tissot really has some more ‘firsts’, like the IDEA 2001 (the world’s first plastic watch, presented in 1971), the Pearl Watch (the world’s solitary watch made in mother of pearl, in 1987) and the Wood Watch (in 1998). Possibly the sort of rock is extraordinary (stone versus marble), anyway the nuts and bolts are equivalent to you can find in the photograph underneath that shows a collection of Tissot Rock Watches.
Although the thought is the equivalent, we like Analog Watch Co’s new watch, the Mason Watch. It absolutely isn’t a world’s first, anyway it’s fun to see another company, with recharged motivation to pick this thought and make a watch from
stone marble. As far as plan the Mason Watch has some more variety (two shapes), anyway as far as shadings (normal material) the decision is among dark and white.
The Mason Watch comes in one or the other dark or white marble, machined from one piece. Each watch comes with an exceptional top grain cowhide lash, hand-created by Amish leathersmiths in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA. Inside ticks something that we for the most part (consistently?) get some distance from, anyway we do comprehend that with a Swiss quartz development the cost of the Mason Watch can be very accessible.
Case in point is, that during the Kickstarter time frame you can pre-request one of these marble watches, for just $ 165 USD (typical retail cost will be $ 399 USD). The Mason Watch is a cool piece of horology that helps to remember the strong experience that Tissot once started.
