Chinavasion's first partnership with the famous Phosphor brand brings you the new Appear line of watches, the world's first mechanical digital watch. From the watch face luxuriously adorned with real Swarovski crystals, to the distinct sound made by the internal rotor, to the black glossy leather strap, every bit of the Phosphor Appear watch is pure class.
The Phosphor Appear watch line skillfully blends design and technology to craft the ultimate fashion timepiece. Driven by Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital (M3D) technology, the Phosphor Appear watch utilizes miniature-sized rotors adorned with Swarovski crystals that revolve to reveal numerical or chronological information.
With each changing minute, an electrical pulse generates an electromagnetic field that changes the position of the crystals on the face of the watch, to elegantly display the passing time, while producing a distinctive sound unique to the Phosphor Appear digital watch line.
The basic "time" mode features a 12-hour display, with the hours positioned above the minutes on the face. The watch face also offers a "seconds" mode and "off" mode, showing an entire face of crystals with no time display.
From its interior technology to bold style, the Phosphor Appear is not your average timepiece. Become a proud Phosphor watch owner now with the newest addition to their unique and innovative range of watches. The Phosphor Appear is covered by a full 2 year warranty, professional quality control team, and next-day shipping offered by Chinavasion.
