The slow Mo is one of the unusual watches available in the market today. Don’t be confused with the “slow” name because that’s just the name of the company behind this amazing watch. The slow Mo is the little brother of the slow Jo (38mm) and slow O (42mm). Coming with just a 34mm case, the slow Mo should easily appeal to everyone who have small wrists.
On the watch, you will see that the time is divided into 24 hours. This allows you to quickly see the time and where you currently stand in your day. Also, the watch doesn’t have a second hand nor a minute hand; there’s only one hand to help you tell the time. Despite of that, the slow Mo can still help you tell time. It’s one hand just slowly rotates around the 24-hour watch dial giving you a very laid back and simple form of telling time. Inside the watch is a Swiss-made Ronda Caliber 505.24H GMT movement. The Swiss-made quartz movement matches well with slow watch case which then ups the watch in terms of build quality.
The slow Mo is still made from stainless steel. There are 12 different models of slow Mo available today. You are free to choose which model you like. Mine came in silver with dark brown leather band which I think is the sleekest of all slow Mo models. You are also free to combine various watch bands with each slow Mo model.
The slow Mo doesn’t have additional functions or whatsoever like other watches out there. But if you’re someone that likes things to be simple, the watch should be more than enough for you. The slow Mo will only tell time and that’s about it. There’s no date, time zones and any other additional functions you can throw in inside a watch. The watch is not something you can play around with. It just sits there on your wrist like of a discreet companion who will readily tell you the current time and where you stand in your day.

The slow Mo is a stylish, high quality watch on a budget. Although the watch looks good, I think not everyone will like its minimalist approach. Getting used to that one-hand 24 hour dial takes some time. I think most people will still prefer the standard watches that will help them tell time up to the last minute.
