DWISS Wandering Hours Watch

Some people like their watches minimalistic and understated but for those who want to make a bit more of a style statement with their choice of timepieces, it’s great that watchmakers like DWISS exist because they deliver unbelievably eye-catching offerings like these Wandering Hours Watches which are funding over on Kickstarter as we speak. Any watch can tell time but DWISS like to tell it differently.

The DWISS Wandering Hours Watches are well and truly taking Kickstarter by storm (with good reason) and they’re rapidly closing in on £250k in funding – something which goes to show that an awful lot of men out there want to get their hands on such an attractive and bold looking timepiece. Available for the bargain price of just £745 during the campaign (which is some 50% off the final retail price) now is the time to move if you want to make sure you don’t want to miss out on this timepiece steal.

Ancient Design Principles

The Wandering Hours concept was first devised in the XII century by the Campanus brothers for Pope Alexander XII. It consists in of an arm with discs at the ends which will rotate and show the current hour whilst pointing to the minutes along the arc-shaped track. In more recent times, some of the most prestigious watchmakers on the planet have used this concept to deliver impeccable timepieces, such as Audemars Piguet with the Star Wheel, Vacheron Constantin and Arnold & Son. This offering from DWISS is right up there with the best of them and is available for under £800 during the Kickstarter campaign which is nothing short of remarkable.

Stunning to look at with a mesmerising movement, the DWISS Wandering Hours Watch on Kickstarter (from £745) is proving mighty popular amongst timepiece aficionados and it has certainly turned our head here at Coolector HQ as well. This is the first time that DWISS have utilised the wandering hours feature on one of their watches but they differ from other brands by having a two- arms module with discs at the end, one disc one for the odd hours and the other for the even hours. These discs show the correct hour and point to the correct minute on the upper part of the dial.

With the Wandering Hours Watch from DWISS the rotating satellite display shows the hours and points to the correct minutes around the dial in a highly attractive and eye-catching display of horology. This majestic looking timepiece uses a Swiss made automatic movement caliber ETA 2824-2, elabore grade which is four times more precise than a Japanese Miyota movement and more precise than a Chinese Tourbillon movement.

Top Quality Timepiece

DWISS have already garnered an impressive heritage and legion of followers based on the quality of the watches they produce and this Wandering Hours Watch on Kickstarter is only going to add to their credentials still further. It has a water resistance of 20ATM which is more than enough for all your underwater adventures and an impressive 42 hour power reserve.

The DWISS Wandering Hours Watch is one of Kickstarter’s most popular watch campaigns to date which should tell you everything you need to know about this glorious looking timepiece. The strap is made from hi-tech Italian fabric and leather with an exclusive DWISS buckle. The movement is self-winding so it generates power as you move your wrist and it is finished off with sapphire double domed glass with anti-reflective coating and a Super-Luminova BG-W9 dial that will illuminate in low-light conditions. Don’t miss out on this Kickstarter bargain.
