    Never before so many 24h watches were in production. Especially trendy are 24h single hand watches. See also Jacopo Dondi or Kickstarter campaign.
    BTW. Jacopo Dondi was Italian XIV century watchmaker, astronomer and physician.

    A very clear design. And the "12" on top position.
    I have to admit: I am one of the supporters.

    As I see now the Jacopo Dondi Kickstarter campaign was sucessful, 50,000 AUD are collected!

    I'm a backer too and I hope that they can keep the schedule - shipping in February-March 2017.

    I got mine today. I know that they had many problems (incl copyright issues) and the delivery delayed month by month. The final result is not so good looking as on the first pictures. Font on the dial and hand are much worse. I would say that because of dial and hand this watch looks pretty cheap. Cheaper than 170 AUD.

    I received mine last week. I have the white dial and blue silicon strap. I think it looks nicer that I expected. I bought it because I found the Kickstarter when there were only a few left of one of the great priced offers. I like the precision of the very fine hand and ten-minute markers on the dial.
    A word of warning is that mine took a while to start after adjusting the time. There is a message in the instructions that this might happen if you turn the crown the wrong way on the first notch.
    I'd have preferred 0 on the dial instead of 24, but this is less noticeable at the bottom of the face.

    You're right. The first drafts of the watch looked a little bit better than the end result.
    Nevertheless - I am satisfied ...
