The CST-01 charges in 10 minutes and lasts for an entire month on a single charge, thanks to a paper-thin THINERGY® Micro-Energy Cell (MEC). The first of its kind, the MEC will keep the CST-01 ticking for 15 years.

The CST-01 charging station uses embedded magnets to align and hold the watch to the charger, making charging a literal “snap.”

The idea for the CST-01 began in December 2011 when Dave Vondle, one of the founders of Central Standard Timing, taped an E Ink display around his wrist and said, “I want a watch like this.”

A year later, we designed a watch that highlights the most innovative qualities of E Ink’s SURF segmented displays; ultra-thinness, readability, ruggedness, flexibility, and low power. The patent-pending CST-01 is assembled by laminating thin, flexible components into a 0.5mm pocket etched into a single piece of flexible stainless steel, making it different than traditional digital watches, which typically use the same form factor of an analog watch.
