mmminimal reader Zach Raven, recently put up his watch design concepts on the mighty Kickstarter asking for a modest $2k for production and landed up getting double the amount.

Today they are made using rapid prototyping manufacturing and ready for ordering. We totally love this one… the minimalesque design is beautiful, and talk about stunning packaging too!
