The deconstruction of an old pocket watch that was once worn by every respectable gentlemen and today is seldom seen, into a statement unisex bracelet was chosen as a symbol of it’s time, and of mans changing needs, fashions and of technological advancements. Starting out as an object owned solely by the elite [Queen Elizabeth I was one such person - circa 1571] as hand-crafted piece, the Industrial Revolution made it possible to manufacture in mass-scale, with new process and material making improvements to the design, construction and finish. As a result, this luxurious plaything of only the few became to be owned by the middle, and then, the lower classes [e.g it was an essential item for those working on the railroads where accurate timekeeping was critical]. Here, there is an interesting parallel to Rapid Manufacture and the new opportunities that it offers us.
