Xiaomi Youpin's crowdfunding platform continues to surprise. There is practically no day when the manufacturer does not surprise us with a new interesting product. Youpin is a platform that is loaded with various tweaks, among which new mechanical smart watches have appeared.
Made on the occasion of the completion of the Forbidden City
The watch was introduced by Xiaomi on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of the completion of the Forbidden City in China. Remarkable mechanical processing is unlikely to leave anyone cold. The watch face consists of more than a hundred moving parts.
In the production of this type of watch, precision is required in the first place, which was definitely not lacking in this case. None of the moving parts weighs more than 0,3 grams. The emphasis on detail was literally a necessity here.
Higher weight and water resistance
The total weight of the watch is 95 grams. This is not the number we are used to with smart watches, usually their weight is in the middle of half numbers. However, with this type of device, weight is not a standard. The materials used and the quality of workmanship are more important.
Thanks to the 5ATM water resistance, mechanical watches from Xiaomi will not be afraid of water either. The glass is sapphire, which means higher resistance to scratches compared to conventional cover glass. The bezel, in turn, consists of zircons of various colors. The owner of this watch will be sure that it will impress at first sight.
The number of pieces is still limited, each has its own serial number
At present, sales are limited to a few pieces, each of which is registered under its own serial number. Information on whether the watch will start to be produced in larger numbers does not yet exist. If you want to buy them, you will definitely be interested in the price.
Mechanical smart watches can defend a higher price
That is 5999 yuan, which after conversion is based on approximately 771 euros / 911 USD. The price is relatively high, but due to the materials used and the fact that the watch is mechanical, this purchase does not appear so disadvantageous.
