Plug & Feather: Stone Face Watches at a Reasonable Price

by Stirling Matheson

Making watches out of unusual materials is quickly becoming a trend. The wood face watch is very much a thing, and I’ve seen a number of all wood watches. I like a number of the ones with wood faces, and I’ve even liked one or two of the all-wood designs, despite the general clunkiness of most of them. This is something new, however. This is a watch with a stone face from a new company named “Plug & Feather.” At first, the name sounds baffling and nonsensical, but a quick Google search reveals that it’s a classic stone masonry technique.

The new watch, which can be had for a very reasonable $99 or $129 with two straps, features a brand new stoneworking technique in which a disk of stone is bonded to a disk of metal to increase impact resistance from all angles.

There are five faces available: sodalite, cloud jasper, charoite, snowflake obsidian, and carnelian. On the inside, the watch uses a Miyota 203A quartz movement and built in to a 44mm 316L steel case. Me likey.
