There are a handful of options available for those who have the desire to own something of their own; a customized, one of a kind timepiece has a certain allure that draws many a buyer. Such a task can be accomplished by modding an existing watch with dial and hands of your choice, or using an online service to create something more personalized.
High-quality, ultra thin, versatile, fashionable and affordable. Does that describe a watch you would like? If so, Rossling & Co. has something to show you. Rossling & Co. is a new watch company started by a pair of brothers who are using Kickstarter to help get their new watch off the ground and in your hands. *Update: the project got funded in just over 1 day!
Crowd sourcing… seems like everyone’s doing it these days. And, why not? It’s probably the best way ever to realize your dream project. And as we’ve seen a few times over (Pebble, Anstead, Sioux City Watches), it seems to work out well for watch brands. Today, we’re going to take a look at 2 new crowd sourced projects, one for a dramatically inexpensive quartz watch, and the other for a lust-grade mechanical.
We don’t often talk about wooden watches on worn&wound… in fact, I believe this is a first time. While the use of interesting materials in watches is something we are very excited by, and wood certainly is an interesting material, rarely do the watches themselves come together to really win us over.
Back in September, we introduced you to the Anstead Oceanis, a Kickstarter watch project that managed to stick out from the crowd for being, well, traditional. Unlike nearly every other Kickstarter watch that has gained considerable attention, the Oceanis was developed with traditional watch enthusiasts in mind.
It goes without saying if you read worn&wound, then you enjoy reading about watches. And if you like reading articles on the internet, you likely also have an affection for well produced books, with good photography and interesting copy.
