Concrete Watches Look Heavier Than They Are

by

Concrete is an interesting material, but I’ve never thought about using it to make watches. Paris-based designer Dzmitry Samal has launched a series of watches, with frames made out of the durable material.

All of the watches in this series are made partly out of concrete, using a patented technology. Each timepiece is made by hand in Switzerland, in limited editions of 100 to 150 pieces. He decided to use concrete since most cities use this material extensively, and reflects a similar urban sensibility in his dials.

The watches sell directly from his online shop for €980 to €1,240 (~$1,202 to $1,520 USD). That’s not too expensive as designer watches go – I expected these to cost a lot more, due to the uniqueness of the design and the limited edition run.
