After launching just last week, the Botanist Watch was already 50 percent funded in just a few hours that its Kickstarter went live. The watch is a “timepiece that utilizes real flowers and moss.” Incredible, no? And the plants are encased in hand poured resin. Check out some of the photos below to get a better idea of how you’ll be sylin’ if you decide to support this one of kind project.
We are a small studio founded because of Kickstarter backers like you, who believe in our goal to inspire and who believe in us!
What started as an art school design project, and a thirst to share creative expression with as many people as possible, has now become a very small team of dreamers and doers who value the art of creativity, as much as the technical elements necessary for entrepreneurship.
Our pieces have been called sculptures for the wrist, likely because we aim to add a deeper meaning to an object which is typically just functional. We try to strip away the distractions and elevate the natural materials we use. Our work is sold to major museum gift stores all over the world – The Guggenheim, The Getty, The Smithsonian, The National Gallery of Art – just to name a few!
To our previous backers, thank you so much for your continued support over the years. It’s been such a journey, and quite honestly, the most stressful fun we’ve ever had!
You can still back this project and you can make a pledge without expecting a reward. In case you do, pledging $70 or more will get you one random watch and strap from the assortment shown and save $80 off future retail!
If you’re feeling really generous, pledging $100 will get you one watch plus all three band colors. This perk is limited and so far there are 317 left of 50.
