In a nutshell: Why is the slow watch truly slow?
We know you all totally get the slow concept, but there are so many different aspects of how we translated the idea of slow to a watch that you might not have thought of all of them yet. Here are 10 good reasons why Jo, Mo and O are simply the best reminder to help you guys to be slow!

 

1. THE CORE IS THE UNIQUE SLOW 24 HOUR ONE-HAND CONCEPT.

2. AS THE HAND TURNS ONLY ONCE EVERY 24 HOURS INSTEAD OF EVERY 12 HOURS IT MOVES AT HALF THE SPEED OF A NORMAL WATCH.

 

3. AS THERE IS NO MINUTE HAND THE WATCH ENSURES THAT YOU ARE NOT STRESSING OUT BY CHASING THE MINUTES.

4. EVEN IF YOU CAN READ THE TIME +- 1-2 MINUTES PRECISELY, IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU AN UNNECESSARILY PRECISE INDICATION OF TIME WHICH IS CERTAINLY RELAXING.

5. THE HAND FOLLOWS THE MOVEMENT OF THE SUN: IT RAISES “ON THE LEFT” AT AROUND 6:00, REACHES IT ZENITH AT 12:00 AND SETS “ON THE RIGHT” AT AROUND 18:00.

6. SHOWING THE TIME WITH ONLY ONE HAND AND ALL 24 HOURS IS A MUCH MORE NATURAL WAY OF READING THE TIME. IT IS TOTALLY INTUITIVEAND YOU DON’T HAVE TO CALCULATE HOURS AND MINUTES.

7. ACTUALLY, IT IS THE ORIGINAL WAY OF SHOWING THE TIME. IF YOU LOOK AT SOME REALLY OLD TOWER CLOCKS YOU CAN STILL SEE THAT THEY ALSO HAVE ONLY ONE HAND AND 24 HOURS.

8. 24 HOURS IS THE RHYTHM OF NATURE DEFINED BY THE SUN. THERE IS NOTHING NATURAL IN LIFE THAT HAS 12 HOURS OR 60 MINUTES. THE ONLY NATURAL CYCLE -APART FROM THE MONTH AND YEAR- IS ONE FULL DAY.

9. THE 24 HOUR ONE-HAND CONCEPT ALSO HELPS YOU TO RECONNECT WITH THE YOUR SENSE AND CONSCIOUSNESS FOR TIME.

10. AS READING THE TIME IS DIFFERENT TO A USUAL WATCH, IT HELPS YOUR BRAIN TO BE FLEXIBLE AND CHANGE BEHAVIOUR PATTERNS. IF YOU ARE FEELING UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE SLOW WATCH, YOUR BRAIN MAYBE IS JUST A LITTLE BIT RUSTY 😉
