Minimalist Digital Watch is a 4cm Square

The unimaginatively-named Sputnik is nevertheless a creatively-designed watch that shows that less is more.

Essentially a four-centimeter square that's a centimeter thick, Sputnik is a plane-jane digital watch. The watch's strap threads through a slot on the main unit, making the whole design look like a thick waistband with a flattened ornament.

Even better, Sputnik is actually available for pre-order! This means we can actually share some spec with you, for a better idea of how this tiny modern timekeeping piece works. To quote verbatim from the site:
