A watch made out of concrete may sound like a strange concept, but not for the designers of a weightless new wristwatch that claims to be durable, fashionable and timeless. Will it however, stand the test of time?

The watch, called The Masonic, is a device that re-imagines concrete through meticulous design and advanced engineering — or so say its designers.

The Masonic has been actively promoted on Kickstarter, a company that helps artists, musicians, filmmakers and designers get their project funded as it sources the support they need to turn their ideas into reality.

​So why concrete, you make ask?

The company launching the new watch, Aggregate Watches, is a business that likes to experiment with unconventional designs.

According to Aggregate, this is the first watch with a bezel and dial made from a proprietary cement blend. 

The designers say they want to "harness the durability of cement, without the weight and create a watch that comes in at 3.2 ounces."

In addition to the concrete, the piece includes stainless steel parts, scratch resistant sapphire crystal lens and leather interchangeable strap.
