Paris based industrial designer Matthieu Keller presents Project O – Concept Watch O1, an innovative mechanical timepiece that boasts a perfect balance between an avant-garde design and timekeeping nostalgia.O1 is a wristwatch providing a supplement of mysterious fashion, minimalist and with studied simplicity.
Presented under the “Project O” trademark, created for this purpose, this concept derives from the chemical symbol for oxygen, which perfectly represents the form and spirit of our company that wishes to offer its singular design vision while respecting trade practices.
A skeletal automatic movement visible to the eye, a heartbeat that will be watched with never ending fascination. A 36-point stainless steel winding mechanism crown with elegant aesthetics. Hands, hours and minutes with a blue satin finish and open centre, swept by a black second hand with an extended counterweight. Its black crocodile band will provide the modern design of this watch with elegance when worn on the wrist, as it leads into the very interior of the case, such as to maintain the roundness of the case, which is easily interchangeable.
The case and its transparent polymer crystal are formed from a single piece (case / crystal), thereby offering a highly resistant yet ultra-light case, with a perfectly smooth structure, and with no edges of any kind, a first for a watch in this category.
Matthieu Keller has launched an online crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter for the promotion of Project O - Concept Watch « O1». Backers of this project can pre-order this unique mechanical watch with a price starting from 289 Euros.
