We are thrilled to announce an exciting project: the time warp collection, a set of unique NFT watches. Created by a team of experienced designers, it strives to combine tradition and craftsmanship with the new world of the metaverse. «We are excited about the launch of our newest project and are looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback», says Philippe Meyer, head of marketing at Beyer.
The design team
The collection was created by designers from various industries. One of them is Simon Husslein, who designed watches for brands like Nomos Glashütte, Ventura or Braun. In 2016, he was awarded the prestigious red dot design award in the category “watch of the year” for his work on the model “Minimatik”. Niklaus Hodel has been working with the fashion elite at Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and recently Maison Margiela. Other team members have backgrounds in 3d art, gaming or advertising.
Beyer is being supported by FTSY8, a fictional studio responsible for the collaboration with the creative team and the project’s realization.

What is an NFT?
NFT is short for Non-Fungible Token. “Non-fungible” describes something that’s truly unique and can’t be replaced. Therefore, NFTs can serve as definitive certificates of ownership for digital objects.
Most NFTs are currently related to virtual art, avatars, and collectibles. Within the last two years, the technology has seen exponential growth in popularity and cultural impact. International brands like Nike, Coca-Cola, or Dolce & Gabbana have successfully launched NFT projects.
The metaverse is a term for virtual rooms created with virtual or augmented reality with the goals of enabling people to interact, work or create together. For Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, the metaverse is the next evolution of the internet.
Can Beyer NFT watches be bought?
The virtual watches will of course be available for purchase. A detailed description of how and where to buy them will follow soon.
