Swiss watchmaker Winwatch has developed an RFID-enabled crystal gasket, ready for installation in any kind of wristwatch.
The RFID-enabled crystal gasket is designed for use in the luxury wristwatch industry, where confirmation of authenticity is extremely important given the ubiquity of counterfeits and knockoffs. The gasket enables wristwatch wholesalers, retailers and customers the ability to trace the origin of a watch back to its place of production, confirming the watch’s authenticity.
On the manufacturing end, the RFID-enabled part allows watches to be tracked throughout the production process and, once shipped out, along the supply chain.
In promoting its new product, Winwatch is offering RFID crystal gasket starter kits for watch brands and manufacturers to sample the new technology.
