Our Mission

We love Watches.

We love NFTs.

The Metaverse is coming.

So - let's build Meta Watches.

A watch you can basically use and enjoy everywhere: On your phone, in Agumented Reality, home, car, VR games, yacht, plane, spaceship, the metaverse.

We believe that unbundling design from hardware is the key idea for the future: Meta Watches combine the passion for traditional luxury watches and cutting-edge consumer technology.

We see NFT as the perfect platform to start a whole new ecosystem: Watch designers, brands, and watch lovers - the current generation, and the next one.

Welcome to the new time.

The Road Ahead

We are here to stay. We think of decades - not months. We want to establish a global luxury brand for cross-platform watches.

Therefore, our goal is not to create and sell one single NFT collection. It is just the beginning.

A long road is still ahead of us. We see so much potential and have so many ideas for the future and would love to develop the roadmap together with you. But there are already some milestones that we want to share with you: We will release 2 editions per year, each with a specific theme.

For the upcoming collections, we are already in contact with young and popular designers from both worlds: NFT artists and luxury watch designers. If you are interested in joining the association, please contact us.

As soon as the collection is completely minted, we will work on long-term solutions like IPFS storage.

Our Community

Our community is key for us: We want to bring together designers and collectors. We are here to establish an open community of people who have a genuine interest in watches, NFTs, and the Metaverse. If you want to be part of the movement, join us at Discord, Twitter, Instagram.

As an owner of a Meta Watch, you will have exclusive access to features and follow-ups through the roadmap.

Team

Meta Watches is currently a project of Axonic - a German software company. In the near future, we will establish our own company for Meta Watches.

We believe that the NFT space is a friendly revolution in collaboration and ownership.
And we want to be a part of it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an NFT?
NFT stands for “Non-fungible token” and is a cool way of saying it's a truly unique digital item that YOU can buy, own, and trade.


What is a drop?
Our first drop will be the collection "Analog Summer 2021" and will consist of uniquely generated watches. Stay tuned for more information about the drop size and date.

Can I buy a Meta Watch in USD or EUR?
No. We can only accept ETH. If you have any questions or difficulties we will find a way to help and guide you through the process. Please contact us.

Do I own the Meta Watch?
Yes. For private and commercial use. Please read our terms.

What is MetaMask?
MetaMask is a crypto-wallet that can store your Ethereum and is needed to purchase and mint a Meta Watch.
Having a wallet gives you an Ethereum address (i.e. 0xSPOO….777), this is where your NFT will be stored.
Learn more about MetaMask and how easy it is to use over here.

How to mint with MetaMask on a mobile phone?
If you are using a mobile phone to mint a Meta Watch, you need to use the MetaMask application built-in browser to mint our NFTs.
Launch the MetaMask application, click the 3 lines on the top left menu in the application, and select "Browser".
This will open a web browser and you will be able to navigate back to metawatches.com to do the minting.

How to mint with MetaMask on a computer?
If you are using a computer to mint your Meta Watch, you just need to connect the MetaMask plugin with our website and verify you have enough ETH to do the transaction. Then you will be able to click on the Mint button to buy a historic piece of engineering.

Buying NFT for the first time?
Get the MetaMask Chrome or Firefox extension. Load it with ETH through services that allow you to change your money to ETH like Coinbase, Binance, or Kraken. Then click the button "MINT" to connect your wallet and approve the transaction on MetaMask. That's it!

Where does my NFT go after I purchase a Meta Watch?
Your Meta Watch NFT will appear in whichever address or connected wallet you used to purchase the item. You can see your freshly minted NFT card directly on your OpenSea.io account.

That sounds great, how do I get in?
Join our Discord server or Twitter account and jump in on the conversation & share your ideas!

What can I do with my Meta Watches / How can I trade them?
You are free to do anything with them under a non-exclusive license.
Meta Watches adheres to the ERC-721 standard so you can trade them on platforms like OpenSea.
Of course, you can wear it on any "container" you like: your phone, your smartwatch, your desktop screen etc.

Is a Meta Watch a good investment?
Please note that Metawatches are NFT based artworks, not investment assets. Please only buy NFTs with money you can afford to lose (please read our terms). Please do your own research. Apart from that, we believe that Metawatches are a wonderful way to express yourself.

Do I get a physical watch?
No. Metawatches are pure virtual artworks, not implemented on any hardware. But the metaverse, AR , and VR are the future. We plan to support all of them.

What do I get by buying a Metawatch?
You simply buy an NFT. That is a tolken in a blockchain (e.g. Ethereum). This is the ownership certificate for a digital artwork. Other usages, like displaying the NFTs on several devices or containers is not included in tha package. We will work on bringing Metawatches to other platforms (e.g. AR and Sandbox), but there is no guaranty.

What happens if you go out of business?
At a certain point on the roadmap - hopefully, in the next few weeks/months - we will take care to decentralize storage, e.g. on the IPFS storage system. The terms / agreement will still be valid.

Why did you guys name the collection 'Summer'? Its already pretty cold outside!
Good point. Well, we started the whole collection in the summer. The collection expresses the mood and feelings of the "hot NFT summer" we experienced in 2021.

Are you associated with Facebook aka Meta Platforms?
No. In fact, we came up with this name much earlier. We started the registration process of the trademark and bought the domain name before the "meta" renaming of Facebook was published.
There is also a "pre-smartwatch-era" company; "meta watches inc" that wanted to build watch hardware. This company is also not linked to the "meta watch association" project.

Which platforms/devices are supported?
We are working very hard on bringing Meta Watches to as many devices and ecosystems as possible. First and foremost: Meta Watches are virtual artworks. They can be displayed on almost any web browser - mobile and on the desktop. Will Metawatches be available on smartwatches? That depends on many factors. Currently, we can see many “walled gardens” in the wild. Apple does not allow watch apps on their devices. We, therefore, create unique backgrounds/clockfaces/wallpapers when native support is not possible at this time. We hope that someday, vendors will open up their closed systems and allow Meta Watches to run natively.
