A new wrist worn timepiece has been created and constructive using zero prefabricated parts. The unique movement within the JW-EX mechanical designer watch offers an innovative design enclosed in 316L stainless steel. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the unique watch which has this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the required funds it needs to make the jump into production.
With still 28 days remaining on its campaign 90 backers have blasted the watch past its required funds halfway mark. Its designer explains more about the features and inspiration behind the JW-EX mechanical watch.
“JW-EX is a new beginning; marks a new direction for JW. My first impression of this electronic world is dull; as if we’re missing the mechanics. We who love mechanical watches adore the sensation of metal; the sound of machines running; the excitement of wheels clashing with each other. And so, I thought of Steampunk. Yet you would ask: is this watch really representing steampunk? The answer is no; it is a representation of Future Steampunk.
It may look ridiculous after infusing German’s simple steampunk into the watch, but please look at the result: Such a unique design! The straight lines bring steampunk a sense of futurism, a sense that breaks through the frame of the current generation of watches. It would feel like you’re wearing a robot from the future when you wear JW-EX on your wrist.”
