I’m a film editor based in Bucharest, Romania (Chainsaw Europe). Huge gadget freak …and actually that’s how I came across (and fell instantly in love with!) the Mutewatch. I saw it on Engadget and pre-ordered it in the blink of an eye on www.mutewatch.com.
I must say that before Mutewatch I wasn’t really into watches… I didn’t find any of them very appealing …for me that is; then along came the Mutewatch to save the day – it’s great! I love it! I adore it actually! Whenever I’m in a presentation, I don’t have to worry about my phone alarm going nuts and ruining the film! It’s MUTE! It’s more than a watch!
A couple of weeks something funny happened. I was at a party, and this guy comes up to me and he was like: I know this may sound very, very weird but… can I look at your watch?
So yeah… Bucharest loves U guys! Amazing accessory!

As a person who loves punctuality in all its forms it is difficult not to admire a man so passionate he quit his job and started wandering the streets of New York painting its clocks. The painter, Amir Wahib believes the clocks “show the city’s respect for history, for mortality and, most important, for punctuality.” I’m not exactly sure what he means, but it sounds beautiful.
I don’t think of the past. The only thing that matters is the everlasting present.

Here is Malin Spjut, Manager of Operations, packing up the very first batch of Charcoal Grey Mutewatches that arrived from Taipei! In the beginning, the Mutewatches are shipped to Stockholm first, where each watch goes through a quality assurance check. In the future, the watches will be shipped to our customers straight from Taipei, via Hong Kong.
My newborn daughter has been up since 5am and I’ve got a meeting later today at 11am. I CANNOT forget to jump on the call and for some reason, the Growl alerts always go ignored behind my 10 windows. Let me set a reminder.
Cool. I made the call and my re-occurring at 2:30pm will get caught too. Glad I keep this thing on.
Not sure when I’ll be back in front of my computer, so let me get a nice charge. So glad that it takes less than 15 minutes. Lookout Ken and Ryu!

Watch this short video made by RSA Animate with parts from one of his lectures. He discusses how individual perspectives on time affect our lives and relationships. Watch it. It won’t be dull. It’s quite fun.
