Award-Winning Watch That Displays Time In An Hourglass Is Your Next Arm-Candy
By Izza Sofia, 17 Sep 2018
Brooklyn-based studio Anton & Irene’s ‘NU:RO’ watch is finally available to purchase.
This first analog addition to its portfolio was made by Anton Repponen and Irene Pereyra, both of who are specialized in digital experiences and have worked with top brands such as Balenciaga and Spotify.
The watch, previously called ‘OZO’, was developed eight years ago and its prototype won a Red Dot award for ‘Best Concept’. The watch features two dials—the hours are placed at the top while minutes are featured below—and a cool hourglass icon in the middle.
The time is displayed in the hourglass when the dials rotate. There will only be a limited 500 watches released to the public so that “owning one would feel more special,” according to Repponen.
Those interested can purchase ‘NU:RO’ on Kickstarter where they will be available for sale until 10 October. You can choose between white or black leather and stainless steel mesh straps. Backers who pledge US$100 or more will also received a ‘NU:RO’ poster.
