When I was first approached to do a little write-up about Moment Watches, I took a look at their website, and I said yes immediately. There were to be 52 watches, with a new one debuting per week. We will never know what designs are coming out next, simply because of the whole philosophy of how this brand works - each watch design has a story to tell.
As long as anyone feels strongly about something, or they have a story they want to share with the world, they can do so via an artwork, and submit this piece of creation to the brand. If your story/picture is compelling enough, it will become a design on a Moment Watch.
Here are some of their watches:
I really really like this one. To remind us sometimes to not take life too seriously.
And also to console myself that it's really ok cos I'm almost always late. >.<
Not that I'm encouraging you to be late, but you know, sometimes you just take that little bit longer to do your makeup cos your mascara kena your eyelid, or you really really suddenly have a tummyache before you leave the house (happens to me A LOT!) or you're just having that little chat with your mum/child before you leave the house. You know, anything urgent or pleasant. 5 minutes is really ok.
If you're observant enough, you will see that the minute-marks have ALL been pushed 5 minutes to the right. So even if you're 5 minutes late you can playfully show your watch to your friend and insist you are on time. ;)
This week's design. It has a chinese character of the word "dream", with a guitar as the body. To remind us to chase our dreams, no matter how dire the situation is. Read the story here.
This one below spoke to me the most, of a sperm and an egg meeting. Read on:
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heaven."
A baby is conceived when the conditions and circumstances in the mother's womb are exactly right. So, be watchful for opportunities in your life to conceive an idea or a project. Sometimes you may only get one chance, a window of opportunity, so don't let it pass you by.
Be prepared at all times by striving continually in the direction of your dream. You are handpicked, your life is special, your dreams are unique, your moment is serendipitous, your time could be now.

All the stories of these watches can be read on the Moment Watches website. I didn't like that last watch until I read its story. Then I fell in love with it.
It's beautiful how sometimes, once you know the story behind, you appreciate it so much more. Like a friend. Or a family member. You know their story, and sometimes this makes you love them more than if you didn't know.
The third design launched. This one is pretty meaningful too.
It's named "Be Determined. Moment to Persevere."
Be determined. Moment to persevere.
The idea of becoming an osteopath first occurred to Josh in high school when osteopathy healed him from a back injury. Despite his academic background not matching the requirements needed to undergo osteopathy training, Josh changed paths and did extra work to catch up and get on the right track. Although it took him much extra effort, his determination paid off in the end.
Inspired by Josh's spirit of perseverance to press on relentlessly, moment by moment, month by month, this watch design is a reminder that each second can be a step closer to reaching the end goal.

All their watches have interchangeable straps so once you have a few watches you can start mixing and matching to create different looks. Of course the straps can be sold separately, but not the watch itself. I would recommend getting another whole watch altogether. Variety!
You should keep going back to the site to check on what they have in case you find one that really speaks to your heart, if you haven't already.
