Gravity Alpha GT-124 Watch Watch Releases Sponsored Post written for aBlogtoWatch by advertiser.

The Gravity Alpha GT-124 Watch is designed with the cosmos as an inspiration, using two moving disc plates placed over each other and balanced to create a moving kaleidoscopic effect. We love watches and watchmaking, and as young entrepreneurs from Hong Kong energized and passionate about watchmaking, we are very much thrilled for our first project to be realized. We proudly introduce our first model, the Gravity Alpha GT-124. This model is available in three different color combinations and with four different straps, and we hope you take a look at our Kickstarter campaign. Let's take a closer look.

Each Gravity Alpha watch features an unconventional design with moving disc plates. In its design, two brass and aluminum disc plates are placed in layers upon each other. As we previously mentioned, the design of the disc plates is partly inspired by the art of a kaleidoscope. The two disc plates function as the second and minute counters. The space between the two disc plates shows us the invisible, yet very much real, presence of gravity. The weight of the disc plates is of great importance. Both disc plates needs to be balanced, so the design of the disc plates are also taken into account to balance the gravity.

The watch is made of 316L stainless steel and is 42mm wide, a size we believe is exactly right, as we don't want it to be too small to get the full visual impact or too big as to be unwearable by a large group of people. The watch is also 13.7mm thick, so there are no worries about feeling like you are wearing something too obstructive for a sleeve over it.

The weight of the disc plates differentiates the minute and second. This unique design requires the newest movement technology that is developed in Japan, it is called the Rotating Disc-Mechanism. The Rotating Disc-Mechanism is fully powered by the Japanese Miyota 8215 automatic movement. The combination of these two technical components is unique in every Gravity Alpha watch. This movement operates at 21,600vph and also provides the watch with over 40 hours of power reserve.

The distance of the minute disc and the second disc needs to be carefully calculated in every individual watch, the height between two plates must be under 0.4 mm. The weight of the minute disc and the second disc are respectively 320gm and 200gm - that is extremely light. The material of the disc plates is made of a synthesis of aluminum and brass. This material has a very heavy, firm and robust appearance but is in fact a very lightweight material. A Japanese company developed this amazing lightweight material, and it took them three years to do so.

We are amazed and thankful for the enthusiasm and support so far, and were so happy to find out that within one day we had half of our goal reached. It's our dream come true to realize a watch brand that is completely inspired by our passions. We have worked hard to reach this stage and we invite you to learn more about Alpha Gravity at our Kickstarter now! Right now, we are offering a GT-124 along with two straps for US $219 as a preorder price, which will have a future retail price of $399. gravitytimepiece.com

    Looks like this Tatoohublot. Not my cup of tea.
    BREAKING NEWS: Aldo Magada leaves Zenith. JCB replaces him.

    Not a bad look, actually. I dislike the absence of a seconds hand, but admittedly don’t see how one could be implemented without looking awkward or tacked on.

    No reason for the display back on this case, the miyota is a fine movement but is nothing to look at.

    • I use spinning seconds disks on more of my watches, so I fail to see what is revolutionary (pun intended) here.

    Dreamcatcher on your wrist.

    New Year Resolution (starts after this comment) for me:

    NO MORE commenting on “sponsored posts”.

    Take care, everyone…

    • Bill W

      I wish you would come back, Chaz, but you’re saving your bullets for Bremont and I respect that. 🙂

    • “No more killin folks. After this one who needs killin…” – famous last words, ha ha.

  • WINKS

    The first sponsored post of 2017… only took less than 72hrs into the new year.

    • Spangles

      A blog to watch is the leading sponsored post aggregator!

  • Yojimbo

    display window why exactly?

    I’ll just go with a Swatch Sistem51 in any event

  • Raymond Wilkie

    I for one enjoy looking at sponsored posts, if they don’t interest me i am adult enough just to just skip it and move on and not moan like a beeeach about it. You want subscription or what ?
    In this instance am afraid its an epic fail, i don’t like it at all ,……sorry, but best wishes.

  • S-kruga

    Borel watches?

  • DanW94

    Not a big fan of the geometric like pattern of the disc. It looks like it was designed with one of those spirograph sets you had when you were a kid. Good luck with your venture.

  • Svetoslav Popov

    Nope

  • BNABOD

    yikes hum no…pass

  • Berndt Norten

    Ok everyone. I’m a glutton for punishment. Hit me with your best shots. Fire away. I love this watch.

    • DanW94

      It’s 2017 – There’s a thousand points of light for the sponsored man, we’ve got a kinder, gentler machine gun hand…..

      • Berndt Norten

        Read my lips: no new critical posts.

        • DanW94

          Like most New Year’s resolutions, forgotten by mid January : )

  • ??????

    Why make a display back?

  • Bill W

    Just the name of this watch makes me want to listen to some Vangelis.

  • The Reclusive Boogur T. Wang

    Hell. At least this guy is trying.
    He’s “in the game” as it were.

  • Geo

    Surely the writer meant to say 320 and 200 micro grams.
    “…..minute disc and the second disc are respectively 320gm and 200gm – that is extremely light..”
    Don’t think so. That makes 1/2 a kilo on your wrist. Perhaps they can claim to have invested heavily in R&D.

    • Dénes Albert

      Not micro, but milligrams. 320 micro grams would be one third of a milligram.

  • Omegaboy

    It reminds me of someone trying to come up with a cool design . . .
