Atomic Wristwatch Launches On Kickstarter
The first atomic wristwatch has been launched on Kickstarter. According to Bathys Hawaii the watch is accurate to 1 sec in 1000 years. The watch which is called the “The Cesium 133″ weights 90 grams which is about average for a normal wristwatch. The revolutionary technology uses a chip-scale atomic clock which divedes a second in exactly 9,192,631,770 vibrations.
“You don’t get the chance every day to purchase a piece of horological history but this is the real deal,” says Johgn Patterson of Bathys Hawaii.
The watch is quite large, because there is a strong battery needed. This ensures that the clock continues to operate 36 hours before the battery needs to be recharged.
Up to ten copies of the watch are being sold. There are six copies available for $ 6000 (4300 euros). There is also the option for two people for $ 10,000 to buy the watch combined with a trip to Hawaii to meet the maker of the device. There is a one year warranty on the Cesium 133.
