Blancier is a small brand that sells watches assembled from off the shelf parts that come from Asian suppliers. There are countless other outfits doing the same online. Their latest product, however, is unusual – the dial is a flattened Nespresso capsule.
Because the capsule is brightly coloured, anodised aluminium, the effect is quite attractive. Various dial colours are available, and each watch is packaged with additional capsules. The case is steel and 42 mm, with a manual wind movement. They start at USD650 and are available online. – SJX
