It’s rare that I ever cover a Kickstarter item on here but this one’s really cool for several reasons I felt compelled to share it with you dudes. First and foremost, this watch is gorgeous. It’s in that perfect zone where you can wear it with a variety of outfits from casual to formal and it will look great. Secondly, this watch is made using Humanium Metal which is the destructed metal from illegal firearms taken off the streets in conflict regions around the world.
Not only does each watch made from Humanium Metal mean that illegal guns are taken off the streets (making them safer), but a portion of the funds from each sale is circled back into the region where these illegal firearms were removed from the streets and melted down, and that money goes toward supporting the victims of armed violence.
— Available in two sizes, 39mm and 34mm, and two different dial styles – a dark grey vertically brushed dial and a vertically brushed steel dial
— Features premium scratch-resistant sapphire glass and the case is contrasted by the fiery red second hand, date and crown
— Powered by a Japanese Citizen Miyota movement, each watch is 10 ATM water resistant and exclusively engraved on the backplate with the number in which it was produced
— Strap options include Swedish Tärnsjö organically tanned leather strap or a military green canvas strap made from recycled PET bottles
