Pier HERCULES

As the name suggests, HERCULES by Pier Watches is a massive and robust timepiece designed for the lovers of oversized wristwatches. Dressed in a 50mm solid stainless steel case, the design of HERCULES is influenced by one of the largest airships to ever fly – Howard Hughes’s H4 Hercules.
Founded by Singapore based entrepreneurs Edwin and Michael, Pier watches brand dedicates its first collection to people with big wrists who have problems finding big yet simple watches to wear. Despite its massive size, the HERCULES watch was designed keeping in mind to offer comfortable wear and simplicity.
HERCULES design philosophy employs minimalism - where more with less. Hence the clean white dials of the watch. To increase the legibility during dark conditions, the whole white portion of the dial is covered in luminous material. So when it the dark, the dial glows to a beautiful blue.
HERCULES watch case may be big but it’s not made to be uncomfortable. Its caseback is designed to be flat but the curvature at its end and built to be a bit higher than a normal case. The case maintains a normal height of 13mm with a slight space in-between the edge of the case and your skin. The space is just big enough to not allow it to dig into your skin and just small enough to make it unnoticeable.
The watch is carefully paired with selected textile watch strap which is soft enough to wear for long periods of time yet hard enough to withstand daily abuse. The brand has also specifically matched the buckle of the watch to the colour of the watch case.

The young watch brand has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the mass production of HERCULES with special discounted prices starting from USD129. Please visit the following link to support the campaign:-
