Timepieces is an art itself that is not immediately visible and hence, not quite being appreciated. However, with the Humism Kinetic Art Wrist Watches, that art becomes very literal. Like, in-your-face kind of literal. It literally brings the art to the forefront because, its has a freaking kinetic art sculpture slapped right on the face of the wrist watch. Seriously, lets take a moment for that sink it. A kinetic art on right on your wrist. I’d say you will probably be mesmerized when you read the time. Every. Single. Time.
Also, with kinetic sculpture incorporated into it, the Humism Kinetic Art Wrist Watches may have just make every other watches in the market look absolutely boring. Key highlights include a 39 mm 316L surgical-grade steel case with diamond-like carbon coating, anti-reflection coated sapphire crystal, Seiko NH35A automatic movement, exhibition case back with sapphire crystal, lasered customized rotor, vegetable-tanned full-grain Italian leather straps with quick release, and 5 ATM (50 meters or 165 feet) water resistance.
In case you want to get technical about the Seiko movement, it is of 24 jewels, 21,600 bph vibrations/h, has an accurate of -20/+40 seconds per day and it also boasts hacking, hand-winding and a customized oscillator. For those who don’t already know, this is the second launch from Singapore-based watchmaker, Humism. For this 2019 lineup, it comprises of two main models: Philosophies (II) and Helios. The former include two kinetic patterns, namely, Kato and Rhizome, while the latter is available in a choice of two kinetic patterns: Dasein and Eudaimonia.
For serious collectors, you will want to check out the Helios as it sports a limited edition colorways of yellow against black as opposed to the usual Humism’s monochrome style. Now, usually, watches of such nature will cost a fortune, but in the case of Humism Kinetic Art Wrist Watches, they are actually pretty affordable. Well, at least they are if you secure a unit from its on-going Kickstarter campaign. Prices start at S$365 (about US$268) for the Philosophies (II) and S$392 (US$288) for the Helios range.
