We're huge fans Nespresso and can't believe how good the espresso drinks are that come out of the diminutive Swiss-made machines. Now German watchmaker Blancier is serving up mechanical timepieces with recycled Nespresso espresso capsules in what might be the first coffee watch.
The so-called "Grand Cru" watch has a 11 different dial colors, each hand-made from a crushed Nespresso aluminum cap. The "crushing" of the colorful capsules mean each 42 MM watch dial will have a distinctive, unique look.
The timepieces are powered by Swiss-made ETA Unitas 6748 hand-wound calibers and are visible via a see-through caseback window.
The watches themselves come packaged with three Nespresso capsules, just in case you want to have a cappuccino while you read the booklet that comes as part of the gift set.
According to the web site, prices start around $650 USD and watches take about six weeks from ordering to delivery.
