Unveiling the Susan Kare Limited Edition

1 like

Hi Everyone. We've been narrowing down options for my limited edition watch and have arrived at the final design. I am also pleased to announce that you will have a choice between two watch colors. Here is the result.

Each watch has a variant of my classic spray paint icon. The spray can is caught in the act of leaving a gradient stripe across the watch, adding an additional dimension to the strap. These designs will be signed and numbered on the back.

I am pleased with the results. It is not 100% done, but it is most of the way there and enough to show you the progress. There is still tweaking to be done on the watch as well as special edition watch faces and other elements.

I am very excited to be working with the MetaWatch team. They are so creative and meticulous about details.

Thank you for your patience!

Susan D. Kare

      When & where do we decide the colour? I most definitely want a white one but I don't remember if an option was presented during the pledge process.

      @199 I would also switch to Susan Kare edition!

      if the price is around $199, i would switch from optic green to the white susan kare edition. the white looks really sweet.

      What about the bezel color on the black? Is it Silver/Gunmetal color, or black like Stealth? Or maybe not decided yet?

      will look like a signature? You can count?

      Poor college kids can't afford to pay so much for a watch :(

      Kevin,

      This watch is the same share and uses the same tooling.

      Also, is the actual watch shape different? I notice the bezel is flush with the rubber strap in these pictures, although it appears to be a render.

      I like the design and look but I hate the price.

    11. Joseph Agreda on August 14, 2012

      I will say I was hoping for clarus the dogcow somewhere, although that doesn't make much sense either :)

      I agree w/ Stan & agree w/ Chris regarding the price issue.

    15. Stan Sokol on August 14, 2012

      Am I the only person finding it difficult to see the thematic connection of spray-can and the smart-watch?

    16. Chris E. on August 14, 2012

      this looks really sweet. but the price is too high for me.

      as always, your designs are tasteful AND cool

    18. Caleb Wong on August 14, 2012

      Would the bezel on the white one be white better than silver? Silver just doesnt seems right.
      I am def going for the white for now.

    19. Jaik S. on August 14, 2012

      Q: Will the black one have the Ion plated steel, like the stealth?

      I hope the watch face doesn't change too much...I just went from Stealth to Susan Kare Edition. Great Design!

      Looks cool. Is the bezel on the black one silver?

    21. Jonathan DeMuria on August 14, 2012

      sadly I cant afford it though : (
