At Humism, the watch is an art canvas with an unique possibility: movement.
Inspired by the Kinetic Art movement of the 1950s, our kinetic sculptures use the movement of time to reimagine the watch's purpose.
Instead of a keeper of routine, our watches turn time into spellbinding art, revealing the beauty of the flowing present.
Unlike most watches which are powered by batteries, automatic watches are powered by human motion. Your arm's movement propels hundreds of precisely assembled gears and springs — a feat of engineering artistry.
In an increasingly chaotic world, it is important that we all play our part. To this end, we give 5% of our web-store sales to charity. One watch provides a month of food for a child impacted by natural disaster.
We currently partner with Mercy Relief, a relief agency responding to disasters around Asia. Read more about their work here.
