The Kickstarter campaign is over, but you can still pre-order a CST-01 on our site: centralstandardtiming.com The CST-01 is assembled by laminating thin, flexible components into a 0.5mm pocket etched into a single piece of flexible stainless steel. In order to make the watch as thin and minimal as possible, there are no buttons or knobs on the watch itself.

The CST-01 weighs less than 5 pennies at 12 grams.
