Jacopo Dondi joins the growing list of companies now accepting cryptocurrency. Customers can now pay using Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Litecoin, alongside the more traditional methods.
The young watch brand has always embraced unconventionality in all areas of their business. Launching in 2016 via crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, they managed to exceed the $50k needed to bring their unique take on the classic wristwatch into reality.
Jacopo Dondi focuses solely on 24-hour analogue dials that are a bit of a head-spin if you haven’t seen one before. Their watches are made in small batches, and usually sell out pretty quickly, with customers all around the world willing to wait months to get their hands on one if they aren’t in stock at the time.
The founders said the decision to start accepting cryptocurrency was actually an easy one.
“We had recently begun investing in cryptocurrencies ourselves, and it just seemed like accepting the currencies through our business was a logical step. We understand that many people still find the volatility of cryptocurrencies a huge risk, and they certainly can be in the short term, but there is a growing number of people that have realised that this is where the world is likely heading anyway, and that over a longer period of time, they’re not as risky as they appear.
Jacopo Dondi may be one of the first to offer crypto-acceptance via their website, but with Bitcoin currently exceeding all-time highs on what seems like a daily basis, they won’t be the last.
The brand currently has limited stock available on their site, or, if you’re happy to wait until April, you can save 33% and get one for $160 - or around 0.00307507 BTC to some of you.
Jacopo Dondi Pty Ltd
Jacopo Dondi was founded by partners Jake and Carmen, based in Perth, Australia. Their watches are designed to display time in a much more natural way than your everyday wristwatch. Whilst their classic styling and elegant details look undoubtedly familiar, their timepieces, ultimately, change the way you perceive time.
