Now for something COMPLETELY different! (Visitor)

Every once in a while a NEW company comes along and with it comes a breath of fresh air. This is such a company. Introducing Visitor Watch:

Here is a snippet from their very well produced website:

"We strive for the unexpected at Visitor. That’s why our wristwatches blend idiosyncratic design with classic, mechanical power. Why, in a digital world, would we choose to make mechanical watches? Because they provoke a certain wonder not found in a battery. Because even though they are not the most accurate, or the most feature-laden, they are the most beautiful timekeepers. On your cell phone clock, the time is a data point; on a mechanical watch, it is a performance piece. This is why, after decades of functional obsolescence, the mechanical watch has survived. Because it’s as much about knowing the time as it is about experiencing the artist’s genius: the assemblage of beautiful metal bits that, impossibly, make time possible."
