TIME AND SPACE ARE SO MANY THINGS. EVENTS AND MEMORIES. PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE. WHEN IT COMES TO THE ART AND SCIENCE OF TIMEKEEPING THERE ARE BASICALLY THREE FUNDAMENTAL CYCLES WE HAVE COUNTED ON SINCE THE DAWN OF EXISTENCE.
- First. The daily spinning of the earth. Day and night, 24 hours.
- Second. The lunar cycle. 29.53 days from each full moon to the next.
- Third. The solar year, 365.24 days before it starts again.
Now YES is launching their new, technically sophisticated WorldWatch on Kickstarter. The YES WorldWatch embodies the soul of the sun and the moon, with a magnitude of data available straight from your wrist.
The La Jolla hills located company has devised a time-tool watch which they dub Nature’s Time Keeper. As well as telling the time, users will have access to the natural cycles and exact timing of the sun and the moon at any given time. The WorldWatch V7 is an evolution of its predecessor, the Equilibrium. New developments include:
- ARC LED dial with clear day/ night indication
- Custom-built contact plug set into the backplate to ensure a consistent and reliable power supply
- Buttons featuring a shock absorbing collar
YES have also worked hard at refining the programming, which has resulted in tighter calculations of twilight with greater accuracy.
If you want to be able to catch the golden hour or the perfect time for stargazing, the WorldWatch by YES makes it all possible. It’s a tool watch which tracks the sun’s and moon’s movements wherever you are in the world. The WorldWatch is suited to people from all walks of life, whether you’re a photographer, pilot, astronomer, military personnel or maybe a traveler who enjoys the outdoors.
It’s no easy feat to incorporate the lunar cycle and solar year within a 24-hour time mechanism. But thanks to chip technology, all three timekeeping cycles have been integrated into WorldWatch in perfect harmony. It’s basically an electronic sundial you can wear on your wrist.
The dial indicates sunrise and sunset, evening twilight and morning twilight, moonrise and moonset, as well as the lunar high moon and lunar midnight. The lunar phase display positioned bottom-center gives an exact rendering of the moon in the sky. Moon data is literally at your fingertips, available at the push of a button.
YES has artfully blended ancient timekeeping wisdom with modern technology. The WorldWatch has been pre-programmed for 650 cities worldwide, but it can also be set by latitude, longitude, TZ, and DST. What’s more, this sophisticated tool watch has been fitted with an electromagnetic compass, with degrees and NSEW display.
The WorldWatch case is made from titanium and measures 46mm, fitted with a rotating bezel. Scratch-proof sapphire crystal sits atop, protecting the watch. The watch has a 24-hour dial, with 12 o’clock positioned at the top and midnight located at the bottom. The arrow hand is powered by a super reliable 24-hour Swiss Ronda movement. The time is presented digitally in the top half of the dial, in either an AM/PM or 24:00 format. In the dark, tritium tubes glow steadily and users can activate Electro-luminescent backlight for an accurate read of the watch face.
It comes with a rechargeable battery which will last for three months after a full night of charging. The recharging device is equipped with a USB, easily connectable for recharging. The WorldWatch also includes a two-year warranty.
Backers have a choice of silvertone or black color cases and bracelets, with satin or polished case finish, sky blue or orange ARC LCD. Additionally, there are four different bezel designs in various color options and nine different soft straps in NATO, silicon, and leather.
YES’ four prototypes are fully operational and ready for production. The goal is to produce 1000 pieces, and with your help, you could get yourself a slice of the action come autumn of this year, with delivery set for October.
