Central Standard Timing, in partnership with E-ink, have launched CST-01, the world’s thinnest watch at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.
According to Central Standard Timing, CST-01, with a 0.8 mm thickness, is assembled by laminating flexible and very thin components into a 0.5mm pocket engraved into a flexible stainless steel band.
The watch is powered by a Thinergy Micro-Energy Cell battery that can be charged in just 10 minutes from an external source. The operation can be repeated 100,000 times, and has a lifetime of 15 years.
The goal of the Central Standard Timing was to raise $ 200.000 on Kickstarter to start production. Until now they have raised over $400 000, and still have time till Feb 22 to increase the amount.
Preorders start at $129 and deliveries are expected for the second quarter of this year.
