Ferro Single Hand Watch Is Inspired by Rev Counters

Currently under development, the Ferro watch is a minimalist single hand timepiece inspired by sportscars tachometers. Designed with a Swiss Quartz and Japan Automatic movement with Sapphire crystal, its modern look is smoothly completed by a classic touch.

Its creator, a great fan of sports cars and luxury watches, claims the design is the result of months of brain storming and sketching. Making the prototypes involved several processes such as molding, machining, brushing and assembling. The single arm with just numbers and mark lines might look a bit strange, but could as well make you feel unique. A red hand on this black watch pushes it further out of the ordinary, while still maintaining its elegance.

The other color is the vintage inspired combination of brown and white, nuances that offer a sense of classic taste. The smallest lines represent 5 minute increments, while the medium stand for the 15 minute ones. The large lines will indicate the 30 minute marks, while the extra large lines represent the exact hour of the day. The red arm revolves around the watch every 12 hours, twice a day.

Sure, it could take a bit of time to get used to, but it could just as well make you feel you’re never late. Or is that always late?

The catch is simple: if you like what the fellow has created and wish one for yourself, you simply pledge for one on Kickstarter. You can opt for the Swiss Ronda Quartz movement model, which will cost you about $150, or you can go for the more expensive issues that come with a Japan Miyota Automatic 8215 movement.

In fact, you might as well dislike it, since the Ferro watches will hit the market anyway. The crowd funding project was that popular it exceeded its goal by about $36,000. Point is, we’d sure get one once it's available.
