1:Face watch Review

When I came across this watch, I immediately fell in love with it.

This is the

1:Face watch


There is an interesting concept lying behind the 1:Face watches: there are 9 different colours whereof each one supports a good cause.

So how does it support that certain good cause? Well, a part of the sum you paid for the watch gets donated to the specific charity you chose.

I went with the white one and despite the long waiting-time (international shipping from the US to Belgium), mine finally arrived.

The packaging exists of a plastic boxwith 2 enclosing cardboard parts that,

when put together, it mimics the simple shape of the watch.

Here it is.

I really like the minimalistic approach they took, the front of the watch has a mirror-like effect when you look at it from above and turns darker or lighter when you turn it away.

The bottom is a metal plate with a coarse finish, adding character to its entity.

To get back to the screen, they've done a great job blending the part of the screen

where the digits appear in the rest of the screen.

You may have noticed that on the packaging there was a big catchphrase saying "This is not a watch"

with further explanation on the side saying how they would be lying if something that feeds a child, quenches a thirst or provides a cure can be labeled as just watch.

I think it's a good way of helping to get the message across to the customer.

The clean 1:Face logo on the front complements the fresh design, though I think it would be better if it was a little bit smaller and was in the middle at the bottom,

creating a harmonious symmetry when you look at it.

Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with the watch and I'd really recommend it to everybody.

It's clean, it's beautiful and you support a good cause by purchasing one for $40.
