Inspired by the possibilities of E Ink, Dave Vondle and Jerry O'Leary, founders of Central Standard Timing, created the world's thinnest watch: CST-01.

CST-01 is a 0.80mm thin flexible wristwatch with an E Ink display and weighs less than 5 pennies at 12 grams. It looks more like a bracelet embedded with "time".

According to the company, the patent-pending CST-01 is assembled by laminating thin, flexible components into a 0.5mm pocket etched into a single piece of flexible stainless steel, making it different than traditional digital watches, which typically use the same form factor of an analog watch.

The CST-01 is powered by a Thinergy "Micro-Energy Cell" and can be recharged 10,000 times and lasts over 15 years. The watch can charge in 10 minutes and be able to function for a month between charges.

CST-01 charging station prototype is created on a 3D printer. A 3D printed prototype can convey a significant time and cost saving. The charging station uses embedded magnets to align and hold the watch to the charger. The charger will be revised to move from a 3d printed process to injection molded parts for massive production. And all watches are planned to be assembled in the USA.

The CST-01 is crowdfunding on Kickstarter. It is available in white and black color with one base station for $129. The estimated delivery is around September 2013.
