Reintroducing the M&Co PIE Brass Watch from Projects Watches

As should be no surprise to readers of our site, Projects Watches creates watches that are driven first and foremost by design. These are not the watches you’ll see in the local mall that many will dismiss as “fashion” watches. No, these are watches that pull designers in from other industries and give things an interesting look. Until recently, I was not aware that they started collaborating with M&Co – a design shop of some reknown – back in 2005. Drawing on that relationship, Projects Watches is reintroducing the M&Co PIE Brass Watch.

Lionstone SuperSlim 01

Lionstone SuperSlim and Ceramic Watches, Persistence Pays off

Crowd funding a project can be hit or miss. There are a lot of watch projects out there, and it is tough (even for us folks who look at a lot of projects) to predict which ones will make it, and which ones won’t. I know of a few watches that I thought were sure fire hits that never made it, and others that I thought were just average that blew up (no names in the latter), and then even more that either deserve their success or obscurity. Lionstone has tried to launch a couple of times, and never quite hit the mark, in spite of what I think is a pretty intersting campaign. They are at it for one final go, with the Lionstone SuperSlim and Ceramic Watches, currently on Indiegogo.

Spending Time with the Dietrich OT-3 Organic Time

It does not seem like it was all that long ago that spring was just, well, springing, and I was writing about the Dietrich Organic Time. Since that initial writeup – which I suppose we can treat as an preview – we were sent over a sample to spend some time with and get some first-hand impressions of the watch. Does it hold up to my assumptions in the earlier article? Well, read on for our review of the Dietrich OT-3.

Benarus Megalodon 05

Benarus Megalodon, Back from the Deep

The Megalodon was a prehistoric shark, the biggest and (presumably) baddest shark to live on Earth. Not too long ago, I saw an article which asked if any of these cold still be alive in the deep ocean (no), but one is definitely back. The Benarus Megalodon dive watch is now available for pre-order, and it is still the beast it has always been.

Projects Watches Suprematism, Art History Degree Not Required

Project Watches is a company that is constantly looking for new ways to use elements of design and art in the way a watch tells time. There are times I think they are a little obtuse, and there are times that the designs work, and there times where the inspiration is a little obtuse, but the design still works. This is the case with the Projects Watches Suprematism. I will get into the basis for the design in a moment, but for me, the design works.
