Having a premium watch might be a dream for many people, but the fact that one piece of a watch could be at the staggeringly expensive price is turning many people down. This luxurious section can only be enjoyed by a handful of people on earth and it looks like will stay that way for a while.
Well, this gap is expected to be trimmed by Bow & Stern when four years ago the Australian-originated brand was first established. With the mission in mind, the Sydney-based startup company chose Kickstarter to introduce their watch, which was dubbed The Abyss.
The Abyss is a premium watch with quality materials. Each part of this timepiece is handmade to maintain its level of precision. Apart from that, as their promise, the watchmaker also offers a lifetime guarantee.
Just like other premium watches, The Abyss also has water resistance to a depth of 200 meters and keeping up the style by using glass made of sapphire crystal with 2mm thick and resistant to abrasions. In addition to that, the Super-LumiNova is also used to enhance the visuals of this watch in the dark.
316L Stainless Steel is chosen to be the back cover of the clock which is expected to withstand all scratches and anti-rust. Exclusivity is another attraction of the Abyss which only produced 1,200 units per model.
Bow & Stern as the watchmaker also has a very special mission where for the selling of each unit of their watch, they promise to plant one tree in Australia. The $ 255 dollar price tag is embedded in The Abyss that has three options such as black matte, brushed gold and brushed silver.
