Pocket watches are a timeless and come packed with tons of old man style cred (the good kind) to anyone who can pull it off. ZIIIRO is making "pulling it off" easier with their new stylized timeteller. The ZIIIRO Titan is a nod to the classic shape we know and love with all of the bells and whistles of modern times. Not only is it ultralight (and coincidentally can be worn around the neck, if you're into that look) thanks to an aluminum casting, it comes in five different colors—azure, chrome, purple, black and cherry.
It might look like a space-age tool, but reading it is surprisingly easy. There is an outer ring made up of 12 segments and an inner ring of 60 seconds. Watch time tick by as the borders darken as it gets later in the day.
A backlight is included in the design, making it easier to be less of a jerk at movie theaters when you need a quick glance at the time.
We're not surprised that they've come out with such a well-designed twist on an old-time favorite. This new release comes from a strong line of designs. The Titan is now available on ZIIIRO's online store. Check out our coverage of previous watch releases from ZIIIRO below.
