The World’s Thinnest Only 0.80 Millimeters Thick

By: | January 25th, 2013

A 0.80mm thin flexible wristwatch with an E Ink display housed in a single piece of stainless steel.

The CST-01 is assembled by laminating thin, flexible components into a 0.5mm pocket etched into a single piece of flexible stainless steel. In order to make the watch as thin and minimal as possible, there are no buttons or knobs on the watch itself. Charging and setting the time is done on the included base station, and for those outside the US who prefer a 24 hour time format, this is also user selectable from the base station.

The CST-01 weighs less than 5 pennies at 12 grams. Because of the comfort, weight and thinness, if we didn’t want to keep looking at it, we would forget we were wearing it.

Everything about the design and engineering was thoroughly considered for its functional and aesthetic benefits. The CST-01 is the most minimal expression of a timepiece, It’s ‘time’ embedded in a band.
