Swiss movement watches inspired by camera design

After 200 years of popularity, the wrist watch is slowly dying out because of smartphone technology. However, just because their being used less, doesn’t mean that there aren’t still some beautiful designs out there. If you’re a photographer, then you might enjoy these watches that combine the design elements of classic film and modern digital cameras.

The Foto Nouveau watch collection was designed with photography enthusiasts in mind. The results of these combinations have created stylish, high-quality time pieces that feature Swiss made movements and striking cases. Both of which are topped by domed sapphire crystal.


The collection is launching with two designs: the Viewfinder and the Objective, and the team behind Foto Nouveau has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund marketing expenses for the watches’ public release. Pledges for the campaign start from $225US for a watch, which is $100US off the retail price.
