There are those who consider the urban environment to rival in beauty that of nature itself. The concrete jungle, with towers rising high above ground and complex angular lines crisscrossing one another in an amalgam of chaos and serenity dazzles even the casual onlooker, often in wonderment. It is perhaps with this background in mind that Dzmitry Samal created the above line of watches. They’re partly made of the essential bone, the fundamental atom and primal foundation of any metropolis: concrete. In this case, a special mix which is resistant to submersion up to 5 ATM (50 meters). The hands themselves are shaped like skyscrapers and on some models rotate on a background of atypical geometry that can evoke the image of a city. The glass is anti-reflective sapphire and the mechanism Swiss made.
As you can imagine, they’re not cheap. The eight models, named “One to Eight Dzimitry Samal” (as in One Dzimitry Samal, Two Dzimitry…), will be made in limited runs of 100 to 150 per model. And they’ll set you back a cool $1,200.
