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