The awkward-to-pronounce name aside, what we have here is an interesting watch. What makes it unusual is, well, almost everything. M2 is the third model made by DWISS, and they’ve funded their kickstarter to the tune of $376,668 USD at this time.


From the pictures I’ve seen, there are potentially many different colorways, from the straps, the stainless steel case in steel or DLC black, and color choices for the hour disc and bits of dial that define the windows.ae6e527b687c07f75147869d708a7691_original

The watch itself is a 43mm diameter case, water resistant to 100M, and equipped with a Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement. There’s a lovely engraved rotor, and display caseback as well. Both the back and crystal are sapphire, as they should be, and the crystal is coated on both sides with anti-reflective coating.


09c0196fe5a7cc6e63b72bc39da39b3e_originalDesigned by Brazilian designer and watchmaker Rafael Simoes Miranda, this watch is a real value. You get a unique dial and handset, a comfortable rubber strap, a display back, sapphire with dual AR, and a Swiss ETA movement at a reasonable price for what you’re getting. Pre-order pricing starts at $715 USD, and models will be limited to 199 per color way.  Kickstarter

Watch Overview

  • Brand & Model: DWISS M2
  • Price: Earlybird pricing starts at $715
  • Who we think it might be for: You’re an adventurous sort looking for a unique watch.
  • Would I buy one for myself based on what I’ve seen?: Yes. And I’d like some of the other straps so I can play with colors.
  • If I could make one design suggestion, it would be: Increase water resistance. A 43mm makes me think of it more as a sport watch, and 100M is not really sporting.
  • What spoke to me the most about this watch: The promise of modularity, and the unique hour presentation.
