Carbon Auto is a Kickstarter watch with a mission: to strap carbon fiber to every part of your body, starting with your wrist. The pieces are pretty cool-looking. They come in standard and “semi-skeletonized” and each model includes multiple straps. The crowdfunding effort has already hit $19,000 so they’re sure to ship and this is the second watch from the team.
Early bird models cost a mere $138 and come with two straps, a leather and a nylon. The watches are lumed and come in multiple colors as long as you’re OK with some permutation of black and silver.
These sorts of Kickstarters are actually really exciting. While a three-handed auto doesn’t always float my boat it’s amazing to me to see that hundreds of small manufacturers can create and sell cool watches on their own terms. This is a massively important change in the industry and one that I think will buoy the entire market.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
