The CIGA Design Z Series Titanium Edition watch that won the German Design Award 2020 has made its debut on crowd funding platform Indiegogo. The Watch emphasizes on its unique, rugged design and metallic aesthetics.
Z Series Titanium Edition is a geometrical fully hollowed design watch that reveals every part of the mechanics. One of the watch’s notable features is the curvy sapphire crystal watch glass. Its durability allows users to wear the watch even in rainy conditions. Another feature that the watch has is its silicone and skin-friendly strap that assures ultimate comfort.
In contrary to most watches that use stainless steel, Z Series Titanium Edition uses Grade 2 Titanium for its case. It is 40% stronger and 30% lighter than a stainless steel watch, making watch wearing a pleasant experience.
The watch is powered by custom-made Seagull AAA mechanical movement and it is able to deliver 40 hours of power reserve.
