Central Standard Timing (CST) wants to build the ‘world’s thinnest’ wrist watch. So, CST has partnered with Electrophoretic Ink Corporation (well-known as E-ink) to create the ‘world’s thinnest’ wrist watch named CST-01 and determined to deliver it to users this year. A prototype of this world’s thinnest wrist watch has been shown at CES 2013.
The CST-01 weighs just 12 gram and its thickness is 0.80 millimeter. It has a single, razor-thin cuff and two different time displays – 12 and 24 hour formats. This world’s thinnest wrist watch is created by laminating flexible components together into a single piece of flexible stainless steel. The watch will use an embedded micro-energy cell that will allow it to charge in 10 minutes from an external dock. The wrist watch will last for 15 years.
CST has mentioned the watch will be “assembled in the USA.” At present, CST is asking for $200,000 as funding for the project on Kickstarter. Here is a video of cST-01.
Pre-order of this watch is running right now for $129 each. First 500 backers will be able to own it for $99 (if available). Already 584 backers (as of writing) have pledged more than $69,000. The device is expected to ship in the second quarter of this year.
