Vertigo Hippocampus; Italiensk designur

Vertigo Watches baseret i Rom, Italien, og de har nu afsløret deres seneste ur i form af Hippocampus, som er inspireret og skabt som en hyldest til havets charme, søhesten. Drevet af et Miyota 9039 værk og afsluttet med en buet safir og anti-refleksglas.

 Vertigo Hippocampus uret nærmer sig nu slutningen af sin Kickstarter-kampagne og har med succes rejst de nødvendige midler til at tage springet fra koncept til produktion. Vertigo urene fås med en række forskellige farvede urskiver inklusive blå, grøn og orange afhængigt af dine præferencer.

Italiensk designerur

Specielt prissatte early bird pledges er nu tilgængelige for det unikke Hippocampus ur fra omkring $417 eller £309 (afhængigt af de aktuelle valutakurser), hvilket giver en betydelig rabat på cirka 40% rabat på den endelige udsalgspris, mens Kickstarter crowdfunding er undervejs.

“The Seahorse has been known and told in mythology since time immemorial and has always been very popular, it is a symbol of fidelity. In fact it was customary to carry an image of him as a powerful amulet, and there are paintings on the external walls of many houses in Pompeii to ward off bad luck. The hippocampus has always attracted the imagination and consideration of men, perhaps for its particular aspect that tastes of magic, a little fish and a little horse … in fact, for the Greek poets the seahorses became mythical creatures half horses, which the gods used to cross seas and abysses.”

Med den antagelse, at Vertigo crowdfunding kampagnen med succes når sit pledges, og at projektets afslutning skrider frem efter planen, forventes verdensomspændende forsendelse at finde sted engang omkring juli 2022.
