We first brought your attention to the Human Time project back inÂ October of last year, and they’re still going strong. Â As a matter of fact, now that they’ve hit their one-year anniversary, they have a special model that they’re coming out with.
(For more information on what HTP is all about, check out our previous postÂ here). Â To me, the watch looks like a cross between theirÂ HTP-MÂ (thinner bezel) and theirÂ HTP-1Â (the canteen styling). Â All three models share similar dial designs and layouts, which, while reminiscent of many a “vintage” model, has some subtle tweaks in the numbers.
Here, on the anniversary model, you’ve got a 46mm case (50mm if you include the crown) housing the quartz three-hander movement with date display. Â The case, with it’s mineral crystal (I believe) has a water resistance rating of 50 meters, and comes on a hand-sewn leather strap. Â All in all, a nice bit of styling.
The last major difference with this watch, as compare to the rest ofÂ HTP’sÂ lineup is the fact that this is a limited-edition piece. Â Only 100 will be made, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Â If this is like their other models, it’s likely going to sell out quickly (HTP-1’s will be in stock in December; some HTP-M’s are available now).
At an asking price of only $115, it’s a good deal. Â Now, if this was just the watch by itself, I’d be iffy on the price. Â Once you add in the fact that you’re actually helping others out with your purchase (a medical professional in a developing country gets a watch as well), I think it’s a fair price that they’re asking for.
Let us know in the comments if you’ve picked up anything from HTP’s lineup for yourself.
