Being an automatic mechanical watch the timepiece requires no batteries and will automatically wind itself using the movement of your wrist. Watch the promotional video after the jump to learn more about this unique timepiece which has been designed by Waves Design Studio based in Los Angeles California.
The TESORO watch project is currently over on Kickstarter looking to raise $40,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain their inspiration behind designing the new watch.
TESORO is a high quality luxury watch. Typically a watch of this quality retails for over $1000. With TESORO our goal is to create a great looking modern mechanical watch that’s affordable.
We believe a wrist watch is an individual expression, an extension of one’s personality. It’s a piece of art put together in the form of miniature machinery that’s carried by an individual on one’s wrist.
Beauty that a conventional mechanical watch brings can never be replaced by a smart watch. A good mechanical watch has a real potential to become heirlooms and be handed down almost forever. Hence, our ambitious project to create a mechanical watch that’s not only unique in styling but also ultra modern in design. TESORO means treasure. Have a look and you’ll know why we feel it really is a treasure:
– 3D multi layered, multi-textured dial with and an open heart to showcase the movement along with a star shaped rotating seconds hand
– Exhibition sapphire crystal case-back showcasing the movement
– Unique and modern case design
– Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed. Ever.
