interchangeability

snap

Waiting for the development process part B 😉 (sorry, we have much work to do at the moment), I wanted to show you how the interchangeable concept works. Therefore, i simply post some parts of the booklet, which show how to take out the clock body, set the time, and put it back in. I don’t want to get too detailed about how excectly the mechanism works.. First, we had something like a turn & snap mechanism, where you would have to insert the clock body, and then turn clockwise to lock it. Later, we decided to use a simpler method, where you just have to push it in to lock it.

One more thing 🙂 There are other watches using similar mechanisms. But with most of them, it’s really obvious that they are interchangeable, because you can see the gap between the clock and the case, the whole mechanism is exposed. We didn’t want to have that, because apart from looking cheap, there also would have been other disadvantages, such as dust getting in. We wanted to make it look like the whole watch is one part, and found a solution to achieve this. If you look closely, you can see that there’s a bent metal frame around our clock body (arrow in the picture), which fits into the silicone very accurate. This way, we don’t have any gaps or areas that can collect dirt, everything is bullet proof.

In the next post, i’ll provide some wallpaper artworks, stay tuned.

    Again looking great. I was a bit skeptical with the interchangeability, but it looks like you’ve got it worked out perfectly. I’m a bit curious how finding out what size of a strap you need is accomplished, and how accurate it is.

    As always, I’ll probably be one of your first customers. Eagerly awaiting the product launch.

    Glyn: Each watch will be sold in its standard clock and strap color. Straps can be purchased as an add-on accessory to mix and match colors. However, clocks will not be sold independently.

    Hi, this looks great and I like how you wanted it to not be visible, I wanted that too. But what I really want to know is if there are going to be full straps sold for it, not just the bracelets because I know I would like that and I know my friends that I have shown this have asked me that. Maybe that could be one of the options on initial purchase, or at least be purchasable as an add-on strap.

    All in all great job can’t wait to see the final product and if I like it, buy it.
