The luxury trademark Cryptomatic, owned by Bitwatch Limited, presented the first luxury mechanical watches that will be available for purchase in digital currency.
There are four models of the timepiece available: monochrome red gold, monochrome silver, silver/red gold and black edition. Each model is exclusively designed and features a case of surgical grade stainless steel with anti-scratch and anti-feflex sapphire crystals on both sides and a self-winding skeleton mechanical movement.
The case is 42mm diameter and has a height of 12mm. The other features include: caliber 8N24, frequency 21600 vibrations an hour, power reserve of 52 hours and 21 jewels.
Instead of decimal dial used in traditional watches, the Cryptomat timepiece has a binary dial, which shows the time and seconds hand reflecting the symbol of bitcoin.
The watches are designed for bitcoin users and can be acquired only with the digital currency. The unique design and a combination of features are expected to appeal to the cryptocurrency users from all over the world. Besides, the availablity in multiple colours will have something for everybody with different sense of style and taste.
Created by designers Luis Rosende and Daniel Bolullo, the Cryptomat is a luxury hand-crafted timepiece of limited edition. The design was inspired by the traditional bitcoin representation (the Casascious coin) and cryptographic bitcoin protocol. The designers wanted to create long-lasting watches that, according to mechanical timepiece tradition, could be worn by a number of generations.
The collection could be purchased at Cryptomatic’s web site, cryptomatic.io. In fiat currency equivalent, the timepiece is estimated at 888 Swiss Francs, USD $918 or EUR 738.
