Philly Artist’s Wooden Watch a Hit on Kickstarter

Lorenzo Buffa captures imaginations, using old-school materials for an old-school invention.

This looks cool, eh?

CBS Philly explains Lorenzo Buffa’s project:

The recent University of the Arts grad creates the all-wood, minimalist time-tellers from teak and bamboo, silverheart and maple, and makore and red sanders.

“[They’re] something that people can be proud of, a piece that people can wear and engage with others over,” Buffa says.

Buffa and his Analog Watch Co. put the project on Kickstarter hoping for $10,000, and so far earning around $60,000.

The first watches will be delivered in January.
