The Humism Kinetic Art collection, is the inaugural art movement based watch range from independent Singapore watch design studio, Humism.  Funding production via Kickstarter, they are taking a different spin on the traditional crowdfunded watch, in more ways than one, the trifecta of this watch design is Art, Quality & Charity.

Patek Philippe Grand Exhibition
