Concrete Watch

Post by TemerityB » August 25th 2017, 4:49pm

I ... I just will let this speak for itself. I would have thought it was the next innovation by Master Wing that you could use that mini-catapult to attack with BBs.

A watch made out of concrete may sound like a strange concept, but not the designers of a weightless new wristwatch that claims to be durable, fashionable and timeless. Will it however, stand the test of time?
The watch, called The Masonic, is a device that re-imagines concrete through meticulous design and advanced engineering — or so say its designers.

The Masonic has been actively promoted on Kickstarter, a company that helps artists, musicians, filmmakers and designers get their project funded as it sources the support they need to turn their ideas into reality.

I have seen two other concrete watch designs.

One, https://www.watches.com/22-design-4th-d ... ete-watch/ and another that was actually far more expensive.

Their truly is no limit to the stupidity of watch buyers out there.

Didn't you just buy an Aggregate Terra?


I did and it dubbells as an Artifishul Testicles.

The one in your link is a weird design, but interesting and one in which a concrete dial makes sense artistically.
The one in the OP is just a run-of-the-mill fashion watch. There's no real point in using concrete rather than any other material.

Also we should probably be writing "concrete", since this material is not like a sidewalk or foundation. I think it's rather like any number of patching/leveling compounds.

I always assumed it was indeed the material used for paving streets. It's not? I mean street cement is a rather cheap material to get

It's certainly cheaper than surgical grade stainless steel!!*

There are many types of concrete. A sidewalk might typically be a standard 3000psi mix, with #57 stone as aggregate. A few months ago we poured a foundation for a tower crane with a mix design for 9000psi concrete. The next morning it was hot...perhaps 120 degrees...as it cured. Different types of cement with various chemicals yield different properties.
Patching compounds are thin, plastic cement products that go on smooth, more like a grout. They range from the stuff you buy at Home Depot to patch a crack to specialty 3 part epoxy mixes that can be quite costly.

I just got off the phone with Avi Viera, and she confirmed that Reynoddo was coming back, and, as a direct response to this vast tidal wave of cement watches looms like a tsunami over the world of horological high fashion, they have sought and been granted a patent on the world's first ever Swiss RUBBER Watch! :roll:
