In the future, every new currency will need a modest entry-level luxury wristwatch to help spread its gospel or at-least to milk its disciples of their hard-earned “insert currency here”.
At least, that’s what Cryptomatic hopes so with its Bitcoin mascot wristwatch that you can only buy with bitcoins and has a large bitcoin symbol on its face. The watch isn’t pretty and I am unsure about what to feel about it. Should I be impressed by the novelty positioning? Should I beat myself over for not having thought of it first? Or should I just close my tab and be amused.
The watch is mechanical, hand-winding, japanese movement. It will set you back CHF 888 and is limited edition.
