Paris-based designer Dzmitry Samal's latest watches use a very concrete design. The timepieces are limited edition uniting the power of French creativity with the technical performance of Swiss skill. Each of the handmade watches in the series uses frames made of concrete.
And, as Samal states on his website that he sees watchmaking, "as more than just a time measuring mechanism. It is the main male jewellery and should reflect the personality and strenght of its owner." Hence, Samal's use of concrete; a material that is synonymous with the skyscraper structures of urban metropolises. Concrete is a considered a noble and robust material; these timepieces reflect this in their classic designs. The highest end of Dzmitry Samal's series of watches will set back purchasers approximately $1,500 US.
