The Story of this Watch
In September 2013, I saw on a French Watch forum this picture (see on the right).
This was a joke from one of the forum’s regular member, but I was struck !
I had no idea such small Hard-Disk Drives existed, and the off-center disc would be a perfect dial for a watch. I decided that this would be my new watch project.
Fast forward to one year later, when I launch a Crowdfunding campaign for this watch on Indiegogo. After a slow start, the campaign ends with €40,561, more than 1,000 times the initial goal of €3,500.
Since then, I sold about 800 HDDWatches.
