We wanted to show you just how much this product truly represents the concept of slow by highlighting some of its impeccable details.
A WATCH TO BE SLOW
The watch has a Swiss Made Ronda Caliber 505.24H GMT movement that originally has 4 hands plus the date. We only use the one hand that shows the 24 hour time in order to create a true slow watch that is reduced to only one necessary component. But we think it’s pretty cool to know that there actually is quite a complex movement happening inside of your watch.
The great thing is that the 24 hour dial allows you to see the entire day in one view. This fundamentally changes the way you look at your watch and it will give you a much better consciousness about the progression of your day. You will realize that the dial does not show a logo as we believe a great product does not need to show any visible branding to be recognized. A unique design language should do the job. The slow logo only appears hidden on the back of the case.
This beautiful object -made of durable 316L stainless steel- is certainly the highlight of this amazing product.
It took our designers and engineers a heck of a lot of work to bring this pure shape alive. The result is an object that, seen from all angles, is perfectly symmetrical.
For example, look at the case from the side and you will realize that the edges on the upper and lower parts have exactly the same proportions.
To give the watch its distinct vintage look we used a raised, extra hardened (K1) mineral glass with antireflective coating. It gives you a crystal clear view on the dial and is extra resistant to scratches.
In order to achieve a fully integrated case back, our engineers created a top loader construction. The result is this perfectly smooth back which is fixed with 8 screws to the case to ensure 100 meter water resistance. This is the only place where you can find the slow logo – precisely laser etched into the steel.
The slow watches are manufactured in Switzerland - the country where the art of watch making was invented. It is where true quality, artisan precision and attention to detail is achieved by doing things in a slow and thorough way. Therefore, we think Switzerland and slow watches are a great match! And it will ensure that you guys get the best possible product and are happy with it for a very long time.
The metal bands are made of solid stainless steel with separate links that create this stunning vintage bracelet look. As we use a slightly thinner band than common the timepiece is not too heavy and very comfortable to wear, but still durable. It’s just right! The solid butterfly buckle opens by applying a bit of pressure so we don’t need an additional closure and can keep the back super clean. By the way: You can easily adjust the length of the band in every watch shop.
The leather straps are manufactured in Italy and made of the finest calf leather. Unlike normal straps that have a lining and filling and other stuff, we simply use 2 pieces of this beautiful leather on top of each other which creates a much more raw and soft touch. You will love the feel on your wrist. To ensure you have the right expectation on the strap PLEASE CLICK HERE to watch a short video clip.
The canvas strap version certainly has the most used and rugged look. The bleached surface and rough structure gives the watch a neat beach and outdoor feel. Like all slow watches, it comes with a special tool that makes it easy to change the band and comes with the unique slow octagon buckle.
The nylon straps make the watch appear sporty and vintage at the same time; and they add a great army flavor to the watch. The strap passes through under the case and utilizes special pins that make the Nylon go in easily. The 3 metal loops are used to hold the end tip and to make this construction look incredible!
DIRECT TO YOU
When you look at the amazing slow product and benchmark it with other watches in the market you will probably think that there must be something wrong. How can the guys from slow offer such a premium product at such a low price? Well, that is the result of our focus on a direct-to-you approach. We ship the watch to you directly from the factory in Switzerland (via our logistic partner). That means we cut out the middleman. Other brands sell to a distributor or subsidiary (and double the price) and this party sells to retailers (who double the price again). And the retailer finally sells to you. So by cutting out all these steps and mainly selling directly over the internet we can offer a much better price value ratio.
We hope you appreciate the difference and tell your friends about it !
Make love to your watch!

As a side bonus, you can use our box as a table clock…
HOW TO ADJUST THE METAL BANDS
First you should put the watch around your wrist, leave the buckle open and pretend to close the watch by pressing both ends of the metal band against each other. If you don’t have arms like a wood chopper, there should be some links left over at the end. Count them, so you know how many you have to take out to make the watch fit perfectly. You will find a nice little screw driver in the slow box. Use it to open the screws on both sides of the first link that you want to remove. Take out the links and fix the last end-pieces again.
