Truth be told, there’s nothing about the Bre & Co. Origami Watch that suggests anything about the Japanese art of paper folding. With its uniquely-shaped case and multi-faceted bezel, however, the darn thing still makes for one of the most intriguing timepieces in the market today.
Sporting an octagon-shaped case, the timepiece makes a powerful presence on anyone’s wrist, all while looking equal parts nefarious and futuristic. Seriously, it’s the kind of watch that will look equally good on a supervillain wearing an exoskeleton, a galactic pilot, or a regular schmuck working out of a cubicle downtown, making for one seriously badass accessory.
The Bre & Co. Origami Watch has a stainless steel case measuring 48 x 54 mm (width x height), with a burly 15mm thick build. It pairs the unusual case with a rather conventional analog dial, with large indicators, three hands, and date function at the three o’clock position. Under the hood ticks Eterna’s caliber 3909A, a self-winding mechanical movement with a 65-hour power reserve. A half-ounce American Eagle gold coin is embedded at the case’s back plate, serving as a tactile reminder constantly touching your skin.
Features include a sapphire crystal lens, a machined crown, and a nitrile PVC rubber strap. It comes with a display case cut in oak wood.
Available now, the Bre & Co. Origami Watch is priced at $5,800.
