The hands literally go out of the picture and harmoniously blend in with the dial. The pearly white color somewhat acts as the universal color that makes them disappear in the background and let you examine each of the stone face’s unique story. At 44 mm case excluding the crown, my doubt has been answered, they did manage to fit each of the stone in a tiny form factor watch. The sapphire crystal lens provides not just support but a strong window for each of the stone faces to be secured in place and tell their amazing story.
The collection lists the following stone faces: Sodalite (royal blue stone found in Greenland with high sodium content), Cloud Jasper (milky white marble silica from China), Charoite (fibrous translucent lavender stone from Siberia), Snowflake Obsidian (extremely hard and brittle mottled white cooled volcanic lava crystals from New Zealand) and Carnelian (cherry colored stone from Siberia).
I don’t know if you will agree with me but this collection is just fascinating. I like nature and the finish of the stone faces are just stunning. You may think that carbon fibre is still better but these watches are created to bring nature close to the heart so in my opinion, the company managed to stay true to their vision.
Going to the innards of the watches, what powers them is the well tested Miyota 203A quartz movement. You will be frustrated though if you want to have a glimpse of its movement as the caseback is closed and you will find the same stamped logo that you will see at the twelve o’clock on the dial. The case is made of 316L Stainless steel case. The crown is nothing fancy since it is just a Screw-thread crown. These watches are also 5 ATM water resistant. The bracelet is made of 316L Stainless steel solid link band. These watches are solidly built and they all come with one year limited warranty.
The company is following a very similar route compared to other new watch brands as they are trying to raise money to produce their first line of watches via Kickstarter. If you are interested in supporting this company and getting one of these innovative watches, check out the link below and pledge $99 to get one of their first watches. I have been informed that the watches will retail for $299 normally so the Kickstarter is a very good deal if you are interested in the watch.
