Dzmitry Samal has made a collection of watches called 'Watches' made out of concrete. Yes, I said concrete! Of all the possible materials you would consider to make a watch out of, in my mind, concrete would not be at the top of the list. In all fairness though, what do I really know about making watches?? I have to admit, they do look rather unique, worth the $1650(US) price range, I don't have that cash laying around, so I'm not one to say. Leave your comments
The Fourth installments of the 'Watches' collection is what I would like to refer to as the BL*EEN edition.
Here is what Dzmitry Samal has to say about his watches collection...
"Watchmaking, as I see is more than just a time measuring mechanism. It is the main male jewellery and should reflect the personality and strenght of its owner. I chose concrete, a noble, modern, honest and robust material, the stuff our megapolis are made of. My watches tell the story of an alliance of French creativity and Swiss technical performance, innovating in a field that has never been explored in watchmaking before.My designs are sophisticated in their simplicity and plainly contemporary..." - Dzmitry SamalSpecifications:
