Argon Spaceone Watch
Watchmaker Theo Auffret and entrepreneur Guillaume Laidet partner on a new watch brand. Named after the noble gas, Argon pays homage to '60s space exploration, and its inspiration is evident in its inaugural timepiece. The Spaceone Watch comes in stainless steel, titanium, or forged carbon and features a futuristic, rocketship-like case that spans 42mm. Time is displayed on a jumping wheel through a sapphire cockpit and is powered by a Swiss-made P024 SOPROD automatic movement with a 38-hour reserve, which can be viewed through the transparent case back, while a black or orange rubber strap secures it in place. The watch went live on Kickstarter less than a month ago and met its goal within three hours. Pre-orders end on June 10, 2023.
