The Slow Jo watch has a Swiss Made Ronda Caliber 505.24H GMT movement that originally has 4 hands plus the date. Slow Watches 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 Slow Watches believes 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.
Evolve the way you think about time.
Slow watches were created to shift the way people read time. So rather than focusing on the second or the minute they have produced an instrument that measures the moment.
Slow does not describe a speed…. It’s a mindset that most of us somehow lost. As a result of our busy lifestyles, we often forget that we actually have a choice of how to live. The slow watch is a subtle reminder that time is the most precious thing we have so we should enjoy everything we do and stop chasing every minute.
In order to be a true symbol of this idea, the slow watch has only one hand that rotates once every 24 hours. It actually moves at half the speed of a normal watch, but allows you to see the progress of your entire day at a glance. This slow way of showing the time is made possible by using a Swiss precision GMT movement that actually has 4 hands and a date (the Ronda 505.24 Swiss Made), but to keep you focused slow watches simply left out the other 3 hands.
Get out of the hamster wheel!
Focus your time on what you really love to do – go for a surf, hang out with friends and family, explore the world, work on something you’re passionate about.…all these simple pleasures that can be easy to forget. Of course, we realize most of us live in a world where it's unfortunately not always possible to do those things we love, but the slow mindset is here to help you to have fun in whatever you are doing. So no matter where you are slow Jo is made to be your long lasting companion on your journey in hectic modern times.
Check out the detailed photos and we’ll let the integrity of the case design speak for itself. slow Jo’s innovative construction allows perfect symmetry on all axes and the raised extra hard glass creates a sweet vintage feel – simply an object of sophistication. That's why it only uses the highest quality materials and is manufactured in Switzerland by the guys who do slow.
Have a great time and be slow...
