The slow Jo is a stylish watch on a budget. Developed by Slow, a fashion-inspired watch company launched back in 2013, the company aims to produce stylish watches with entry-level price tags.
At first look, the timepiece looks desirable. The watch measures 42.5mm x 38mm x 8.2mm. The proportions are bit smaller than most watches in the market today but everyone should be able to appreciate how it looks and feels. I like how the watch feels comfortable on my wrist especially its lugs. I didn’t feel any friction thanks to its intuitive case design and build material choice. The watch used the 316L stainless steel during its production process. The slow Jo 25 is also lightweight. It weighs just 65 grams which makes it an ideal day-to-day watch.
But what makes the slow Jo 25 exceptional is the concept behind it. The idea here is to create an illusion where time is somehow slowed down. This is achieved with the incorporation of a 24-hour dial which replicates the movement of the sun. Another important feature of the watch is its style of displaying time with one hand only and has a 15-minute increment. I like the concept behind this watch although I also think that there’s a bit of guesswork here in order to pinpoint the time to exact minute accurately. Honestly, I don’t really have much to complain about the watch. I’m sure that you will also like how it looks especially that the company didn’t bother including their logo on the watch just to stay true to its overall design.
Powering up the slow Jo 25 is a Swiss-made GMT quartz movement. I can’t say much about this quartz movement except that I’m hoping in the near future, the company will start using mechanical version tp give their watches more substance.
