Since beginning yesterday, Baselworld, one of the worlds largest watch and jewelry exhibitions, has already showcased various new smartwatches from prominent companies like Fossil. Samsung too took to the stage and unveiled several smartwatch concepts, but standing out prominently from the rest, is a smart pocket watch hybrid.

In collaboration with renowned Swiss watch designer Yvan Arpa, Samsung pairs the internals of its Gear S3 smartwatches with a traditional pocket watch casing. While still a concept project, Samsung hasn’t released any details on the device’s release, so don’t expect to pick one up anytime soon if at all. Regardless, it’s great to see some variety from smartwatches, especially those that combine classic design with modern functionality in the way that Samsung has here.

“The Gear S3 is more than just a smartwatch, it is a beautifully designed watch that puts a timeless spin on the smartwatch category, crafted for both watch aficionados and tech enthusiasts.”
