The Balance Watch bases itself off the duality of Yin and Yang

The Balance Watch bases itself off the duality of Yin and Yang

Visually split into two distinct parts, the Balance watch says all it needs to with its name, and the watch face design. Taking inspiration from the Yin-Yang, the Balance watch is all about showcasing a duality. A duality between colors, themes, and even technology, because aside from being half black and half white, the Balance Watch is also half-analog, half digital.

Looking like a normal mechanical watch, the Balance’s watch face is actually half-parts a dynamic e-ink display. The black surface serves as a display unit, through which the hands appear, and on top of which lies the white half-dial piece, adding contrast and drama to the watch face.

The hands come with their own interpretation of duality, with black and white hands (and dot indicators at the end of them) and tell the time against the watch’s dual-colored surface. The white part of the watch surface comes with a subdial, and to complement it, the e-ink display has a ‘subdial’ too that displays the date and time. The e-ink display even works in tandem with your phone when connected, giving you notifications when you’re getting a call or a message, and if you really want to spice the two-tone layout, you can even get the display to show off black and white patterns, giving you the duality of visual drama vs plain-ness!

Meet the Nowa Superbe, a smartwatch that never needs charging

You’d never guess that the Superbe was a hybrid smartwatch. With its incredibly fashion-forward aesthetic, the Superbe is a gorgeous looking wristwatch with a unique dial and a simple yet classy design that’s fitting of its Parisian roots… but the Superbe is more than just a gorgeous looking wristwatch. It’s a hybrid smartwatch too, with a world-clock, activity tracker, sleep tracker, Bluetooth controls, and probably its biggest feature, its ability to work without needing to be charged. This eclectic combination of a great aesthetic, along with remarkable tech-features is what makes the Nowa Superbe the best of both worlds.

At the heart of Superbe’s beautiful unisex design, is its square watch face. Ditching the straight lines, Superbe’s watch face is housed inside a bulbous square outline, giving it a bold character that looks great on male as well as female wrists. Backed with a Swiss Parts Quartz Ronda movement, the Superbe comes with a wide slew of smart features that sit under its innocuously mechanical exterior. The Superbe packs activity tracking, sleep tracking, a smart-trigger for your phone camera, Google Fit and Apple Health compatibility, a find-my-phone feature, automatic time zone adjustment, and by far my favorite feature… a battery life that can last as long as 2 years.

The haute smartwatch that never needs charging, the Superbe is powered by a CR2025 battery that lasts 8 months in ‘Smart Mode’, and 2 years if used as a regular timepiece. The watch comes with 3ATM of water resistance too, allowing it to be worn at the gym or in the rain, just like any good wristwatch. At less than 10mm thick, the Superbe is thinner than most smartwatches too, and comes with a mineral glass with sapphire coating. The Superbe comes in 6 color variants, between black and white faces that sport matte and metallic accents. With a style that’s definitely a contemporary classic, the Superbe also comes with the ability to sport an Italian leather band, or a Milanese metal mesh band. Designed to reflect a Parisian sense of style on the outside, and cutting-edge technology on the inside, the Superbe is a watch meant for both the style-savvy and the tech-savvy… and the fact that it doesn’t need to be charged is just music to everyone’s ears!

Dango watches quick-release lugs & straps means you sport a unique watch everyday!

A lot of care and curation goes into the outfit you wear everyday. From your shirt, all the way to your shoes, everything is picked compliment one another in order to look great as a whole. The Dango Modular Watch takes on a similar approach.

Split a watch into three key details, the face, the lugs, and the band, Dango’s watch comes with interchangeable parts, allowing you to easily build a watch the way you build an outfit…with care, consideration, and a sense of style. The Dango Watch’s dial comes in three different design variants. A minimal-yet-solid Trek variant for people who want a watch face that’s bold but not overdone; a more chunky, diver-friendly variant titled the Dive, that’s armed with luminescent dials and a water resistance of up to 200 ATM; and lastly, a variant for the serious wristwatch aficionado, the Chrono, with its three subdials, also including a stopwatch.

The three visual styles broadly cater to three different personas (although it’s highly likely that you could like more than one, just like me), but boast of the same ability to switch up bands and lugs. They’re built to be inter-compatible (so that bands and lugs can be used between too), and you can even ditch the lug by attaching the band directly to the watch’s body. While visually different, the watches come with the same attention to detail and level of construction we’ve come to know and love with all of Dango’s EDC products. Each watch is powered by a Swiss Ronda Movement encased in a 316L stainless steel casing and viewed through a sapphire crystal. While a RONDA Cal. # 515-2 powers the Dive and the Trek, giving both variants a battery life of 45 months, the Chrono comes with a RONDA Cal. # 3540.D, packed with a larger battery that powers it for 54 months. All three watch styles pack a date window too, for extra measure.

At the very heart of the Dango watch is its ability to be modular. The interchangeable lugs and bands instantly allow the watch faces to take on different avatars, allowing some to go well with casual apparel, some to complement a leather jacket, and others to look great with a suit and a tie. With a choice between NATO, Stainless Steel, Silicone, and Horween leather straps, you can simply and easily change the way the watch looks on your wrist (even choosing to use or ditch the lugs to create unique styles), allowing it to be crafted with the care and diligence you’d take to choose your outfit… and it its strong, robust, long-lasting build, the Dango will see you through all your style-updates and changes through the years!

The Gemic Watch Tells Time Through Undulating 3D Surfaces


Staring at the Gemic tell time is almost like looking into a kaleidoscope. it’s an ever-changing landscape of undulating surfaces and forms that enchants, and also tells the time.

“Time is not just a number but also a story of the life”, says designer Xundi Li, who has, through the Gemic, attempted at giving time a shape. Ultimately each moment in your day is different from the last, and the Gemic watch tries to reflect that, by looking different with each passing minute. The watch consists of two different 3D layers that sit atop each other, rotating to tell the time. Ridges on the layers indicate what time it is, and the layers themselves come with amoeba-shaped cutouts that rotate as the layers do, creating a visualization in the center of the watch’s face… right in the middle of which sits Gemic’s branding. Pretty neat!

Nordgreen’s watches are all about Scandinavian simplicity, symmetry, and social responsibility

I remember first getting a glimpse of Nordgreen’s watches when I saw Sam Gwilt (our buddy, Sam Does Design) wearing them. Designed in Copenhagen, Denmark, Nordgreen’s watches spoke of true Nordic minimalism, with design details that omitted everything complex, retaining just the elements that were necessary. A clean dial, three hands, and a date window. Together, these three elements were all that were needed to build a beautiful watch that’s outwardly simple, sophisticated, and minimal to the extent that it looks serene.

Nordgreen’s Philosopher watch perfectly channels this minimalism, with its pure white watch face (that even ditches numerics for stick markings), and the slightly asymmetric seconds hand that looks like it’s slicing through time. The watch body comes with a slightly outwardly drafted design that is just angular enough to feel different and look different. The crown at the 3 o’clock position has a minimal yet unique style too. The Philosopher comes with a body made from 316L stainless steel, commonly found in the best watches, and houses within it a Japanese Quartz Movement on the inside.

Designed to embody Scandinavian simplicity and symmetry, Nordgreen’s watch body comes in classic colors too, ranging from silver, to rose gold, to even a bronze-ish gun metal. Paired with interchangeable tanned Italian leather straps, designer Jakob Wagner ensures that the watches adhere to the highest standards of quality, craftsmanship, and style. Coming from an incredibly design-forward background, Wagner has worked with companies including Bang & Olufsen, Muuto, and B&B Italia. Guided by traditional Scandinavian design, a background in mechanical engineering, and an innate love for watches, Wagner partnered with Nordgreen to help build watches that embody an authentic Scandinavian ethos, and aesthetic.

Nordgreen’s sensibilities don’t stop at just minimalism… they extend to charity too, a core value that Danes uphold with tenacity. As a part of their Giving Back Programme, With each purchase, Nordgreen allows users to select one out of three charities that Nordgreen will support on their behalf. Flip your watch over and Nordgreen even etches a tracking number on the back, letting you track the progress and impact your act of charity has had on the society.

Nordgreen’s minimalist approach also results in their watches having universal appeal. Available in three variants, the Philosopher, Native, and Infinity, Nordgreen’s designs possess the ability to look great on any wrist, paired with any outfit, and even across genders (all of Nordgreen’s watch models have unisex designs).

The crown is at the 3 o’clock position and the body made from 316L stainless steel, commonly found in the best watches, and the watch houses a Japanese Quartz Movement.

The Native Watch

The Native watches are about balance. Chief designer, Jakob Wagner, wanted to bring the Native back to the founding routes of a watch with a brilliantly classic look which has been redefined for the modern being.

The elevated design is a result of the rounded case. The clean dial, subtle, light grey minute mark, and rounded lugs define the watches classic intentions.

The Infinity Watch

The Infinity watch is inspired by the evolution of nature, removing the complexities that modern civilizations have brought to Earth. Pure simplicity has been arrived at by leaving just the essentials, represented by the removal of the lugs, the date, and the fine detail of the hourly marks. While the deep curvature of the dial reminds us of infinite time and space, affirmed by the extended hourly marks that glide up to the edge of the dial.

Ziiiro’s Horizon tells time using artistic compositions

Yanko Design has, since the very beginning, been a fan of Ziiiro’s watches. Back in 2011, Ziiiro made waves with their watches that flipped classical watch design on its head. Deviating from the hands, numerals, subdials, and just the boring notion that watches needed to have the aforementioned elements, Ziiiro founded the movement that fused time-telling with abstract art, because watch faces and hands are just elements of form and space. They could literally be interpreted in any other way… and Ziiiro’s watches as a result of that creative spark, have looked like time-telling album-art.

The Horizon watch uses a gradient and line to create new compositions that tell time. Keeping the watch’s face circular, and its straps in a solid color, the watch’s body forms a perfect canvas to the face that tells time but tells art too. Without any perceivably functional element on the watch face, numerals either, the watch does a pretty neat job of creating compositions with meaning. The gradient dial tells the hour while the white hand gives you an indication of the minutes. Their orientations form new compositions with every passing minute (although I can’t begin to think how wonderful a second-hand would look too!), forming a watch that’s as abstract as time itself!

The PowerWatch 2 runs entirely on its wearer’s body heat and solar energy

A future where you never have to charge your devices is closer than you’d think. Matrix’s PowerWatch 2 doesn’t come with a charging dock like most traditional smartwatches… that’s only because you, the wearer, are the charging dock! PowerWatch 2 relies on Matrix’s state-of-the-art thermoelectricity harvesting technology that captures body heat (a form of wasted energy) and uses that very heat to power the watch. Since every human’s body produces different amounts of heat based on genetic makeup, physical activeness, and location, the PowerWatch 2 packs a solar panel underneath its display too, allowing it to power itself entirely on energy that’s present around us, but isn’t tapped into. This literally means the PowerWatch doesn’t need a battery or a charger, and can run forever as long as it’s on your wrist.

Debuted at CES this year, the company aims to showcase the potential of using body heat (a form of energy that’s usually lost) as a means to power consumer technology. However, while the technology is incredibly ground-breaking, it’s equally nascent… I mean, there’s only so much thermal energy a watch that’s sitting on your wrist can harvest, right? The PowerWatch doesn’t come choc-a-block with features, but rather models itself on a smartwatch/fitness-tracker hybrid. The watch comes with a color LCD display that displays a very Apple Watch-esque aggregation of data like the time, date, the number of steps you’ve walked, calories you’ve burnt, and even the amount of energy it’s harvested from you. It also comes with four button controls, packs an onboard GPS as well as active heart rate monitoring and basic sleep tracking, and is compatible with Apple HealthKit and Google Fit platforms. Oh, and the PowerWatch 2 is also water-resistant to 200 meters.

The PowerWatch’2 most selling feature remains the fact that it never (literally never) needs charging, and that it runs as long as you do. Powered entirely on a combination of body heat and solar energy, the watch may not be as feature-laden as the Apple Watch, or the Samsung Gear (only because they’re so processor-intensive and require so much battery power), but it certainly packs enough to quite literally make heads turn. Hey, you’re reading this article after that incredibly inviting title, aren’t you? The most interesting step would be for Matrix to patent and lend this technology to other companies. Imagine having a smartwatch like an Apple Watch that boasts of 2-3 extra hours of battery life thanks to thermal heat, or a smartphone that charges when it’s in your pocket, gathering thermal energy from your leg. I’d certainly enjoy living in that future…

The Deux watch uses a camera-style aperture to go from bold to minimal

Watches and cameras both showcase beauty in complexity. In fact, it’s no surprise that there’s usually an overlap when it comes to hobbyists who collect and refurbish old watches/clocks and cameras. The mechanical elements in both are incredibly intricate, and an art-form in themselves. The Deux watch combines elements from both, creating a timepiece that is a remarkable blend of aesthetics, intricate detail, and by design, has two watch faces that you can swap between.

The Deux watch is styled as an Automatic Chronograph with two subdials and a date window, but hidden within the watch’s rim is a camera aperture-esque mechanism. Twist the dial and the aperture closes in on the watch face, blocking out all the elements except for the hands, turning a feature-laden timepiece into a watch that champions minimalism by just showcasing its hands. The aperture-style design detail, rather than just being an aesthetic feature in its own regard, allows the watch to embody two contrasting styles. When the aperture closes over the watch face, it gives the Deux a minimal, sleek, almost-zen-like appeal, and when opened, makes the watch take on a sporty, feature-laden avatar. This switch between contrasting themes makes the Deux quite uniquely appealing to a larger variety of people, not to mention mechanism-hobbyists who simply love the appeal of watching a highly precise and delicate aperture system open and close. (I’d consider myself to be the latter)

The Deux comes in three variants, sporting the same functionality, but with different movements on the inside. The Deux Chimera comes with an automatic Japanese-made Miyota 9122 movement, while its successor, the Janus is powered by the brand-new 34-jewel Seiko NE86 movement with a power reserve of 45 hours. The Janus Elite, the most premium of the three, packs a Swiss-made Sellita SW500 which allows the chronograph to sport three subdials as well as a date and day window. All three watches come with a 316L steel casing with a scratchproof Sapphire glass on both the front as well as the exhibition back, and boast of water resistance up to 5 ATM.

The Deux watches come with a choice between Italian leather straps and two metal strap variants; and sport three body colors (gold, silver, and metallic black) that complement the watch’s black face and aperture. After all, the Deux is all about showcasing duality, making it a great watch for both minimalists as well as feature-lovers, and especially for people who love the beauty in mechanical intricacies.

Sony’s smart-band adds smartwatch functionality to your analog timepiece

sony_wena_1

When Apple first debuted the Watch, kicking off the wearable/smartwatch trend, people (including the Swiss) thought it would spell doom for the analog timepiece industry, but they couldn’t have been more wrong. What’s worth noting is that the smartwatch could never replace the finely crafted analog timepiece, because their target audiences were completely different. A person who marvels in and pioneers the finely-tuned, hand-crafted intricate analog timepiece would never want to replace that with a hunk of pixels.

Sony’s Wena, however, allows those true-blue analog timepiece lovers to accept technology without surrendering their favorite timepieces. The Wena is a tech-filled band that can fit on any timepiece that sports an OLED screen of its own that can show you notifications straight from your smartphone. The beauty of the band is the fact that it doesn’t replace analog artistry with state-of-the-art tech, but allows them to coexist. The Wena comes with a screen that pulls notifications from your smartphone, along with the ability to make contactless payments. The band can easily fit on any pre-existing analog watch you have, allowing you to hold onto your precious timepiece but still have the future and its perks right under your sleeve.
