In honour of November’s Binary Day (yeah, I didn’t know either), The Candence Watch Company have released the ultimate in Geek Chic, a collection of watches where the roman numerals have been replaced with binary. There’s even a competition to win one too!
The fall line-up of 4-Bit Watches consist of the 4-Bit Retrograde, 4-Bit UTC Chrono and the 4-Bit Chrono. Each watch is subtle, classy and geek chic, replacing the usual roman numerals with the system of 1’s and 0’s that all computers rely on.
Kicking off the line-up is the new 4-Bit Retrograde watch, not only displaying the local time in 4-bit binary this watch also displays dual time or Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) so you’ll always know the time on the mother ship. Available with a black or white face this watch has a striking 43mm stainless steel case with stylish leather wristband.
Also utilizing the functionality of UTC, the 4-Bit UTC Chrono is a classy timepiece that features a chronograph. It has a stylish appearance with a 43mm stainless steel case and the luminescent hands set against a primarily black face and genuine black leather strap.
Last but certainly not least, for techies who want the functionality of the chronograph but have no need for UTC, Cadence has designed the 4-Bit Chrono, boasting a 43mm stainless steel case and leather wristband.
Each watch utilizes a Japanese Miyota movement with an extremely reliable time keeper that never requires winding and sapphire coated quartz glass to help prevent the watch face from scratching.
