These prototypes were developed after 8 months of research and development. The
objective of the project was to design a wristwatch made entirely of aluminum (not
including movement and crystal). Aluminum wristwatches have long been considered
inadaquit as durable timepieces for a number of reasons. I have tackled many of these
issues of concern and provided some unique solutions with this pair of prototypes.
Currently there are very few watch manufacturers that offer aluminum case
timepieces. Although Swatch have one in their line of products, most watches made of
this soft material retail in the range of $10.00-$80.00. With a high-end Swiss made
movement and a design that invokes integrity and a no-nonsense theme, these wristwatches
would typically compete commercially with brands such as Omega, Rado and Longines.
