It doesn’t look great but at least they’re trying.
Better than the next sub copy or Daniel Wellington style “dress watch”

That could be a cool design with a little refinement. It still looks like a concept mock-up.

Yeah. Concept is interesting. Needs a more customized movement to really make it work. The thickness of the movement combined with the crudeness of the winding stem really detract from the idea.

Neat concept, but having such a plain Movement really takes away from this and just makes it looked unrefined and cheap.

You know you have a design problem when you have to ask a friend what time it is after looking at your watch.

He is close to 500 backers and over $200k, so he is halfway there.

Would be more interesting as a wall clock with the rotor removed and enlarged massively.
