NOWA is entering Italian market by showcasing at HOMI in Milan | 28-29 JAN. 2018

NOWA is entering Italian market by showcasing at HOMI in Milan | 28-29 JAN. 2018

Paris, France – Feb 10, 2018 – NOWA Watch Company has officially launched ultra-thin smart hybrid watches at HOMI in Milan.

If there is one city that could be named the “Fashion Capital”, it is Milan. It was natural to choose this place of luxury, art, gastronomy and culture to launch NOWA in Italy, an independent brand of minimalist hybrid watches designed in Paris.

It happened during HOMI, one of the major expos dedicated to design and lifestyles. The expo is held twice a year and features internationally famous brands as well as emerging micro brands such as NOWA. The NOWA team was very excited about attending this great exhibition for the first time.

The pavilion dedicated to fashion accessories, watches and jewellery was crowded with new brands showing off versatiles and creative products, a strong sign of rebirth for the luxury industry.

The company proudly introduced the hybrid watch concept which combines the elegance of a classic watch and the functions of a smartwatch. While competitors focus on features, the NOWA team places design in the foreground! It is challenging but it makes sense in view of the fact that 25% of watch owners wear their watches as a fashion statement.

The company showcased the Shaper collection with 8 different models: Classic Black, Classic Brown, Blue Matter, Revival, Dessus Chics, Black, Trilling and Bateau Ivre. Minimalistic, sharp and thin, the NOWA watch is an expression of modern lifestyle.

The critics were unanimous in their praise of the design and quality, and yet impressed to discover advanced technology in such a tiny stainless-steel case, featuring automatic time zone change, activity tracking, sleep quality, phone call reject, and more.

The NEW Shaper Black style | July 1st, 2017

The NEW Shaper Black style | July 1st, 2017

We are thrilled to introduce the NEW Black color, which we unlocked as a stretch goal during the Kickstarter campaign. We are very excited to share the first photos with you! This watch is truly beautiful and completely exceeds all our expectations for the new look and style!

 

 

All-Black Style!

The men’s NOWA Shaper Black Smart watch is created in black ion-plated steel with a deep matte black dial. It’s dressed by a full-grain matte black Italian strap with a black steel clasp. This is an impressive series with subtle nuances and a touch of modernity, accented by the signature indigo blue hands and the solid white metal indices.

 

 

Extremely well-crafted

The sample is extremely well-crafted, the colors are deep and the smart module is fully operational. Our minimalist watches are built upon subtle details that reveal themselves with time. And, of course, Black is a style that goes well with anything.

 

 

Discrete halo light indicator

The halo light indicator looks great flashing within its clean lines that reveals itself only when operating smart features (Bluetooth pairing, call notification, and control of phone camera, and ring).

A prestigious launch in Paris | May 10, 2017

A prestigious launch in Paris | May 10, 2017

Last week was an important achievement for NOWA with the official launch in France. We welcomed more than 100 journalists, distributors and contributors to the Eric Gizard gallery, 10 Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 75001 Paris, France.

MINIMALISM OF THE LOUVRE PYRAMID

We started the journey with an intimate live interview with the renowned and bold French designer Eric Gizard, in front of the Louvre Pyramid. The weather was great and the interview was led by Stéphanie Cansell (@steffcansell) on Periscope. Eric detailed his past experience in interior and industrial design, as well as decorative art in collaboration with prestigious French brands such as Roche Bobois, Saint Louis, Hermes, and Air France.

The Louvre, with its Iconic glass pyramid leading into the Museum, was the perfect backdrop for learning about his design philosophy characterized by the timeless fusion between classicism and modernity.

Eric was proud to explain how he achieved the design of a slick and elegant 40 mm watch of less than 10 mm thickness while still integrating useful intelligence.

CHECK OUT OUR SLIM, SMART WATCHES

On that day, we also did a presentation of the NOWA Shaper watch on the street between the Louvre and the Gallery where the event was hosted, with the help of our local French engineer. He demonstrated live, with his watch in one hand and his iPhone in the other hand, the beautiful simplicity of the watch features.

NOWA is the slimmest hybrid smartwatch with classic timekeeping controlled by a phone. The NOWA watch delivers accurate time anywhere across the globe by syncing with your smartphone via Bluetooth Smart Technology. When the watch is not connected to the phone, precise time is ensured through it’s best-in-class, Ronda Swiss Parts quartz movement.

The NOWA watch is also a powerful activity tracker with step counting, distance and calories burned, sleep monitoring, and smart controls for camera, calls and phone recovery ring. All fitness data is securely saved in Google Fit or Apple Health apps.

The NOWA watch is simple and minimalist and requires no charging! It changes styles when you do by allowing easy strap changes using the quick release spring bars.
