Anicorn X STAPLE creates the Aretmis Time watch

Anicorn Watches has partnered with Jeff Staple, founder of Staple Pigeon, to create Project Artemis. This project revolves around a new timepiece called Hour of Artemis, which is built on the signature watch model of Anicorn K452. Although pre-orders are closed, you should still take the time to admire the sleek and sleek design of Hour of Artemis.

Everything in the design of this watch and its accompanying hardware has been carefully thought out. Throughout the Artemis project, you will find a A and an upside-down pigeon. The A represents both Anicorn and NASA’s Artemis program while the upside-down pigeon is STAPLE’s signature “Space Pigeon”. Roll markers found on some spacecraft are also used in designs. Here is the watch as described by Anicorn:

Hour of Artemis has a sleek, minimalist and streamlined design, the gray color is inspired by moon rock, with orange highlights on the dial and crown reminiscent of the “international orange” applied to the space suit.

These orange accents stand out against the clean, minimalist white and gray design of Hour of Artemis. For those who secured a pre-order before the stock sold out, the watch will come in a protective pelican-style case with the Project Artemis badge. Inside will be the Hour of Artemis watch next to a NASA Worm patch and a plaque with Project Artemis branding that also shows your watch number.

story of the unicorn

If you’ve never heard of Anicorn before, here’s some background on the company. Richard Dane is the owner of Anicorn and is best known for designing the NASA Worm logo in 1974. Back then, this futuristic design was used for years before being decommissioned in 1992. However, it is recently returned as NASA moves forward. with the Artemis program and the commercial crew program. The logo is said to have never been retired but was “just resting for the next chapter of space exploration”.

As a spaceflight enthusiast, I really like the design and theme of the Artemis project. Too bad it was limited to only 250 units. While the $780 price tag would have been a tough pill to swallow, maybe I did.
