July 15th, 2013
Razor 010

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: A few years ago before the advent of the modern smart phone, mobile phones were far more varied and styled.

My favourite phone of this era was the Motorola Razr, it was a sleek thin clam shell style phone with two separate screens and a super sexy metallic key pad. The key pad looked uber futuristic (at the time) with its metallic finish, illuminated numbers and dividing lines and tactile feel. This is what inspired my “Razor” watch.
