Designed in the heart of Switzerland by famed designer Emmanual Gueit, Ikepod watches is an iconic watch brand that began in the 1990s and has now reemerged to help redefine what luxury watches are able to look like in the modern age. As their name suggests, the watches feature a pod-style design that makes them smooth, rounded and ready to be worn to any formal event. To keep prices low on these famous watches, Ikepod sells directly to the backer, making them more affordable than they’ve ever been.
With the Ikepod watch, you are being treated to the iconic rounded shape of classic Ikepod watches but with a modern twist laid upon them. Each one is made with a 316L stainless steel case that has a smooth, rounded design, matching the bulbous nature of the glass lens. The 42-millimeter Duopod watch is first in their collection and is a two-hand watch with a quartz Miyota movement. The other watch is the Chronopod that measures 44 millimeters in diameter and uses a reliable Miyota JS25 movement to keep the time. There are a variety of dials to choose from, ranging from smooth to textured and available in black, blue, silver and white.
Currently, you can find the Ikepod watches being crowdfunded on Kickstarter. At the time of writing, Ikepod watches have reached $335,168 pledged out of their $81,318 goal with 15 days left to go in the campaign. Bring home one of your own Ikepod watches when you make a minimum pledge of around $365 or more.
