Worlds thinnest watch: CST-01 E ink watch just 0.8mm thin.

Worlds Thinnest Wristwatch

At just 0.8mm thick (or in this case thin may be more apt) the CST-01 makes the bold and quite believable claim to the crown of world’s thinnest watch.

This e-ink watch is powered by a Micro Energy Cell (MEC)  which can be recharged 10,000 times and lasts for 15 years. Each charge lasts about a month and the watch is recharged in 10 minutes by mounting it on its recharging base station (pictured below).

The CST-01 achieves its extremely low profile by fitting its display, battery and Seiko Epson Microcontroller into a 0.5mm section in the single piece stainless steel band. Weighing a featherlight 12g  it comes in either black or white.

Also in order to achieve its incredible thinness it doesn’t feature any buttons- setting the time is done via the base station.

 

 

The CST-01 is a Kickstarter project for which you can place a  $129 pre-order for the watch. The campaign has already reached its $200k goal which means that in theory delivery of these watches will start in September 2013.
