CERES: A Revolutionary single-handed watch

 ABOUT THE WATCH: 

Our goal with the C01 was to create a clean, minimalist, attention-grabbing watch.  Watches are one of the few accessories worn universally, and we think they ought to be conversation-starters. The C01 is single-handed.  Its long hour-hand glides around the face of the watch twice per day. 

The single-hand forces the wearer to read the time in a new way: rather than concentrate on the seconds and minutes, as one does when reading a digital clock, the C01 wearer focuses on the hours, the watch’s single hand, and its position between the hours. This way, reading the time is more natural; It stands in contrast to digital displays where the user anxiously watches the minutes and seconds slip away.  Instructions for use are posted below under "how to use a single handed watch".  

 

 

 MATERIALS USED: 

The watch features a mirror-finish stainless steel case, domed mineral-glass crystal and is fitted with a thick, top-grain leather strap. 

 

FIT: 

The C01 sits well on most wrists. The watch has a 42 mm diameter and 48 mm lug-to-lug measurement. We intentionally designed a watch where the diameter and lug-to-lug width were close; doing so allows the watch to fill the wrist without extending past it.

 

 

 

  WHO WE ARE: 

Ceres is a small Canadian upstart watch-maker based out of Winnipeg, Canada. We are a design-focused team and believe that good design ought to be accessible to all. We are rigorously committed to quality and customer satisfaction.  Finally, we are watch enthusiasts! Our goal was to create a watch that we would be proud to wear.

WHAT WE NEED:

We need your help! We have worked tirelessly with our manufacturer and have undergone countless revisions to get the watch to where it is today. We just need a little push to get going! The $20,000 will allow us to place an order with our manufacturers, package the watches, and then ship them to you. We greatly appreciate your support and will work hard to ensure that your watch is shipped on time, in perfect condition, and to your complete satisfaction.
