A new watch brand called Contempus is offering a uniquely-styled watch for those who love concave surfaces. The piece runs a quartz Miyota movement and has a curved face that dips in with cleverly-designed hands that dip deeply into the bowl as if for sustenance.

The company, unfortunately, didn’t proofread their Kickstarter page but let’s work with what we have:

The main concept of our design is a neat, contemporary outlook striped [sic] of the unnecessary visual garbage. Our project is an ode to the masters of past, present and future: those, who move the industry of aesthetical objective beauty [sic] to new heights.

I, personally, love being moved to new heights and I love paying a mere $88 for an early bird edition. The crowdfunding closes in 52 days and the watches should ship in April 2018.
