( Design )
This is where we explain why a 21 Watch is such a great watch. We explain why we have taken a long time to get it right and why its worth the wait . We call it the "recipe" and this is ours
The Concept - but How ?
What is a watch ? What does it need to do ? What do you want from it ? How much do you want to pay ? What should it look like ? How does it do its job ?
This is the recipe of our project ..... Form - Function - Cost - but How ?
How is time is kept ?
The watch had to be automatic , there was no option but a mechanical watch
A watch tells time for you day in day out, batteries screw up the planet and die when you need it least . Who needs 100 % perfect time of a quartz watch ? WHO ? Maybe NASA do , but not you .
We can all live with a few seconds a day and if we cant, why not ?
Our Brand Name ?
Now there is a thing , we could have called it close to any known brand to try and fool people, but that's not who we are. Lets call if after a fish , nope ..that's not going to work ..I know what lets call it a number "21" close to our heart "Twenty One", the age you are free, the age you can make your own choices the age we all see as adult . That's the name "21" .
TWENTY ONE ...Your are Free to choose
The 21 Watch ?
It had to be a sea watch, one that anyone can wear in the sea or swimming. It must have the look of a classic watch, and the durability for today's watch wearer . It had to be 210 Meters or more water resistant .We know what we had to have, all we had to do was make it and that had to be out of the only material a watch can be.
316 Stainless STEEL.
The Mechanical Movement
It had to be reliable, it had to be accurate, it had to be serviceable by anyone that could service a watch , [ we are not into paying for service and waiting for months at an authorized service center] and it had to be cost effective, it had to have many years of proven history
We were left with one clear choice and we took it.
The classic reliable SEIKO 4R35 / NH35
The glass in front of the face and hands had to be sapphire ( Sapphire can only be scratched by a diamond ) it has a perfect white pure look, and has a durability that no other lens can offer, it had to look good longer than you will. It does not need keeping in the safe. The glass is right on the top and it and the ceramic bezel must be unscratchable..21 watches are .... Now wheres the Watch ? >>
