Concrete is Turned into Elegance on This Watch by Dzmitry Samal

These simplistic and sophisticated-looking watches are made of material that isn't exactly so sophisticated -- concrete. This watch by Dzmitry Samal, roughly priced at $1,600 US, is tailored for the man who is looking for rugged elegance. There are only 100 limited-edition pieces worldwide.

The watch's face is made of concrete, a material described by the designer as "noble, modern, honest and robust." The concrete, though it may seem heavy, is actually very lightweight.

"Watchmaking, as I see is more than just a time measuring mechanism. It is the main male jewelry and should reflect the personality and strength of its owner," says the designer.

By incorporating an unconventional material and refining it with elements like sapphire crystal glass, concrete is immaculately transformed into a fashionable accessory. Due to the texture of the concrete, the watch's appeal is more urban and contemporary.
