As an artist - with a keen eye on detail and finish, I cannot but be in awe. The weight and feel, the organic movement, the elegancy, design originality, the everything. I simply love my Kato watch!
The dial 🕛 Oh wow! Attempted stillpoint mediation with the dial as a focus point, for about 5 minutes. Incredibly hypnotic! Having studied hypnosis, I can tell - for induction of a trance state this is very potent. The patterns flow in an extremely intricate way. You dont simply "figure it out". The more you study it, the more beauty you notice. Im amazed💘 Soothing. I can imagine many who could benefit from detaching their attention in this manner.
To be fair, before arrival, I was a tad worried it would be too "flashy", seeing as how I work as a psychologist (modesty is key). Albeit, in all its extraordinary presence, it is also surprisingly elegant and subtle. It lures your attention - it doesnt scream at you for it. Its intelligent, and nuanced. Its beautiful but modest.
This clockwork is art - an expression. Even more so, its fine art - imaginative, aesthetic and intelligent. For anyone who was ever in doubt, dont be. This watch is the very antithesis of dissapointment. Its better than what I imagined, and truly in a class of its own.
I'm really enjoying wearing this watch, it is quite hypnotic. I have a lot of watches, all of them bought for quirkiness, intriguing design or just pure aesthetic appeal, and this one meets those requirements. It won't be worn all the time - I have too many others I enjoy wearing to stick to one on a permanent basis, but it will get its fair share of time on my wrist. It is very well made and the automatic movement is a bonus for the price. My only issue was the extra import tax I had to pay, which means that I will have to think twice about buying another one in the near future.
Thank You Humism for this absolutely wonderful watch. I will buy from You more watches in the future. Great product and i am happy ! 🙂👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
My original purchase of the Kato was not received, understandably I was quite frustrated with this, but all it took was an email to the customer services, and a new watch was dispatched.
The product itself is beautiful, unbelievely high quality for the price point.
10/10 customer service
10/10 product quality
Very pleased with the design and quality!
This watch is so much more fun in person. I gave it to my husband for anniversary and he gets comments from coworkers and strangers every time he goes out. It is a beautiful piece and supports a good cause as well. Five stars all the way.
I had this watch for 3 years now, this watch is amazing no problems ever, through rain snow and hail! This watch has been through a lot and it’s still ticking! I don’t know if it’s meant for all of that but it’s still working. It’s truly amazing that this watch has lasted me this long. Wore it through all of my jobs, great conversation starter! Truly one of a kind! Nothing like this on the market! I’m always in Aw when I look at it along with other people! Bout to coo another! Keep up the good work man!
Sorry for the late review..
My husband is not a watch collector and doesn’t wear much jewelry but he does like art and conversation pieces and unique items. This watch succeeded in surprising and delighting him on his birthday and both of us continue to be in awe at this beautiful work of art! High quality materials and mesmerizing mechanics. Incredibly happy with this purchase! I would give it an extra star if I could 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Daesin, watching time as petals unfold... Pure elegance
Peace Mr. Sze
Beautiful, lovely to catch eyes. Slightly heavier than I expected. Worth it for kinetic
My wife showed me these watches one day because they fascinated her, so I decided to get one for her without her knowing. After looking at all of the designs a lot, I settled on the Rhizome. I chose it because I really liked that the face showed this complex design most of the time, but there is that one moment every so often when the design seems to line up harmoniously before splitting apart again. I thought that was really zen.
The service was absolutely amazing throughout the shipping process, helping to make sure the watch arrived at the right place so that it could be placed in my wife's hands. She absolutely adores it. Thank you so much for everything!
I am a novice watch enthusiast on a limited budget. I purchased the Kato model and this has been one of my most expensive purchases to date. As a point of reference, I have several inexpensive quartz watches. In the realm of automatics, I have a Seiko 5 SRPD61 and an Orient Helios. I enjoy all these watches, but the Kato is the only one that has a sapphire crystal. Combined with a flat surface, it provides a beautiful window to view the workings below. I wind each watch each day and I have noticed that the Kato keeps the most accurate time throughout the week. The Seiko and the Orient run fast, gaining five minutes in a week or two. The Kato is almost spot-on! As a vegetarian, I would have appreciated a non-leather option for the band. However, the black band is comfortable and complements the watch dial perfectly. I have only worn this watch a few times, but I am very happy with it! It is meant to be a wearable piece of art as much as it is meant for telling time. As such, the time-telling aspect is sharing the billing with the kinetic art. It is not difficult to read, but sometimes I need more that a quick glance to determine the time. I do find myself thinking about the day ahead and if I have appointments and keeping a schedule is key, I may choose a watch that is a bit easier to read at a glance. On the other hand, it so enjoyable to look upon that it is perfectly suited for lifting the spirits or creating conversation at a social gathering.
Thank you David!
PS Have you considered a clock-version of these pieces of art?
Really great watch to just sit there and look at all day.
