Welcome to the forty-first instalment of our weekly series: The Kings of Kickstarter. From indie short films to throwback typefaces, our last Kings brought some serious design to the Roundtable. As per usual, NUBI has procured 5 Kings (and of course one jester) and presented them below. Ranked in descending order, only one can claim the title of Supreme Overlord.
#5. CERES – Ceres Team
“The C01 is single-handed: its long hour-hand glides around the face of the watch twice per day.”
They say you can tell a lot about a person by their watch and for some people it can be a make or break accessory. Whether it’s a fashion statement or cramming a phone’s worth of tech into your time piece, the watch market is burgeoning with choice.
Ceres in all their design glory are keeping things simple, so simple in fact that the C01 only has a single hand. Broken down into 5 minute, 15 minute, and hour segments, it may take some getting use to telling the time in this fashion but the minimalistic nature of the watch is effortlessly cool. Timekeeping is no longer about anxiously watching the seconds and minutes of your day tick away.
