The ‘World’s Thinnest Watch’?
By John Yong, 09 Jan 2013
Chicago-based design company Central Standard Timing has claimed to have produced the ‘world’s thinnest watch’ that is as thin as a credit card.
Called the ‘CST-01’, this futuristic-looking timepiece is made with various flexible components laminated into a 0.5mm pocket and etched into a single piece of flexible stainless steel.
The time is displayed on an e-ink screen and there are no buttons or knobs on the watch itself—time setting has to be done through an external base station, which also serves as a charger.
The watch charges in ten minutes and each charge lasts for an entire month thanks to its ‘THINERGY Micro-Energy Cell’ (MEC) that will keep the watch ticking for 15 years.
Currently, the company is seeking funding on Kickstarter.
