Since the dawn of time, mankind has endeavored to encase it as intelligently and elegantly as possible, of course eventually leading us to the divide we’re currently faced with: smart and mechanical.
If like us you're still numbing your backside on the fence, fear not, for a new startup firm dubbed Kairos may have the answer thanks to its upcoming mechanical-digital hybrid models the MSW and SWW.
Melding the self-winding movements associated with high-end craftsmanship with new tech capabilities – push notifications from Facebook and Whatsapp, calorie counter, remote control for your smartphone or tablet – each has both a transparent color OLED display which can disappear to reveal a fully ticking clock.
Like what you see? You can pre-order the Kairos, starting at $499 (£296) for the MSW, and gold SWW a bit costlier at $1,199 (£712), ahead of a a slated December 2014 release.
Until then, we'll be back on the fence if you need us.
