Introducing Luxglove, a Marketplace for Watches and Collectibles

Having just made its debut on the Apple App Store, Luxglove is an online marketplace for pre-owned or vintage items, primarily watches, focused on South-East Asia.

Established by a startup that previously did the same for affordable art, Luxglove is a listing platform for jewellery, art, furniture, as well as timepieces, which currently are the most numerous category. Based in Singapore, the platform is meant to serve the South-East Asian market, a particularly vibrant one for high-end watchmaking.

Though other similar platforms like 1stdibs and Chrono24 exist, Luxglove is the first of its kind in Asia. It’s essentially a smartphone version of a luxury consignment store, but one where the offerings are filtered for quality and legitimacy. All items are first vetted by the Luxglove before they go online. Luxglove offers two options for listing items. “White Glove Service” is all encompassing, with Luxglove handling photography of the item for sale as well as delivery. The other, “Snap & Sell”, is straightforward and as the name implies, users upload their own photos.

Fees for selling on Luxglove vary according to the category, but for watches dealers pay 3% while for private sellers it’s 5%. And the first 100 signups to list on Luxglove will receive complimentary “White Glove Service” with photography and delivery.  More info is available on luxglove.com, while the smartphone app can be downloaded on the Apple App Store.

Introducing the Anicorn Series 000, a $325, Mechanical, Disc Time Display Wristwatch

Originally funded via Kickstarter, Anicorn's first wristwatch is the Series 000, a disc-display timepiece powered by an automatic movement.

The Anicorn Series 000 made its debut on Kickstarter, raising over US$50,000 and selling out its first run. Now available in six other colours, the Series 000 uses twin discs to indicate the time, essentially a simplistic variant of the wandering hours complication.

Instead of hands, the dial is fitted with three discs, mounted on the same pinions that would ordinarily hold the hands. A vertical line engraved on the bezel at 12 o’clock points to the time on the discs, the hours on the outermost disc and the minutes closer to the centre.

Most of the watch is black, with the numerals rendered in Grow, a sans serif font conceived by Swiss design agency Dinamo. A touch of colour is in the form of the seconds disc at the centre of the watch that in colour and printed with four lines at the cardinal points to show its movement. Six colours are available.

The case is black PVD coated steel, 42mm in diameter and 10mm high. Inside is a self-winding Miyota calibre 8215 with a 40 hour power reserve. Miyota is a subsidiary of Japanese watchmaking giant Citizen that specialises in low-cost but reliable mechanical movements made in China.

Anicorn is based in Hong Kong and ships worldwide. The Series 000 is available direct.
