VOORT ONE

VOORT, the Singapore based industrial design studio established by Kevin Chiam Yong Sheng & Lim Yong Kang, presents ONE, a crownless timepiece that introduces an innovative way to set the time.

Instead of a regular protruding crown, the ONE wristwatch integrates the time setting control to the back, resulting in a perfect circular symmetry. Now, you can simply set the time with a single push even with the strap on.
Secondly, with a clean watch face and case, ONE flaunts a neat, minimalistic and symmetrical design. When it comes to fit for various occasions ranging from casual to formal, the lug less design enables the wearer to quick change the straps including splash resistant NATO straps.
ONE’s watch body is machined from high grade surgical steel which is extremely tough, durable and corrosion resistant. Case measures 42mm diameter and 10mm thickness. Watch hands and dial rings are crafted from precise CNC (Computer Numeric Control) laser cutting. ONE’s watch hands are specially treated with a luminous such that it emits a soft, warm glow in the dark.
  “One” draws inspiration from sundials which use shadows casted from the Sun to tell the time. It incorporates shadow play via angular slits on the dial ring which appear more prominently under various angles. The watch hands embrace the concept of brightness and contrast and interprets light and darkness as tangible elements.  One is equipped with a Swiss made quartz movement.
VOORT launched a Kickstarter Campaign on 15 Dec 2016 to fund a pledge amount of 25,000 Singapore dollars and it has achieved more than 100% of the amount within 4 days of project launch. The campaign will be online till 14 Jan 2017 and interested customers can pre-order his or her timepiece by backing this project. Kickstarter price starts from 138 Singapore dollars (Appx US $ 96).
