British design firm Optik Instruments is gearing up to launch its new Horizon wristwatch that could shake-up the way we tell time. It makes a whole lot of sense. We think you\u2019ll agree. Horizon is bold. It disregards seconds and minutes to tell time in a more general, arguably rational way.\r\n\r\nHorizon\u2019s primary waypoints are at 15-minute intervals at quarter past, half-past and quarter-to the hour. We already use this terminology to convey the time to others. Think about it. How often do you say things like \u201cit\u2019s just gone half-past\u201d or \u201cit\u2019s quarter to four\u201d instead of using the exact time?\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe central disc of Horizon\u2019s watch face also rotates once in 24 hours with a red line as the reference point. After some use, you will be able to tell the time at a glance, just by looking at the angle of the horizon. You can use all the reference markings together to gauge the current time with precision.\r\n\r\nHorizon may appear counter-intuitive at first. However, once you\u2019ve seen the watch in action, you will immediately understand that this approach is simple and engaging.\r\n\r\nHorizon has a striking appearance. It\u2019s designed to be immediately recognisable as an Optik instrument. The disc watch face is designed and tested thoroughly for weight, balance and shock protection, with the Swiss movement tested for accuracy, deviation and longevity. The Optik team spent over a year refining their design to perfection.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHorizon is equal parts function and form with stacks of personalisation options, things you don\u2019t typically find in anything other than a smartwatch.\r\n\r\nHorizon can be worn on the wrist with the crown facing towards or away from the body. You can use either colour of the disc as day or night and, if you prefer, use the time-zone lines as your time reference. You can even use the red reference line at the bottom or top of the disc. It's all entirely up to you.\r\n\r\nEach Horizon watch is engraved with a unique serial number and presented in a specially designed case that\u2019s paired with a celebration booklet. Optik Instruments offers a five-year warranty for peace of mind.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nOptik Instruments is taking Horizon to Kickstarter on the 27th February 2018. The innovative wristwatch will be offered in a limited quantity at \u00a3199 (Approx. AUD $353). Horizon comes in four distinct versions: Flagship, Billet, Navigator and Tech.\r\nVisit their Kickstarter here\r\nSign up to be notified when the watches are available\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
