Enjoy the Midas touch with the gold-tone raised wing shapes featured on this laid-back analog timepiece. The French-designed Wize and Ope Unisex "Material" Interchangeable Slide Watch also offers a smooth, sleek interchangeable polyurethane band in black or gray, joining flush with a rectangular plastic case for an ultra-smooth profile. Gold-tone, interchangeable slide pieces feature raised, metallic wing designs that stand out against a solid-color band. A black dial displays a Wize & Ope logo at the 12 o'clock, along with rounded hands and bar hour indicators at the three, six, nine, and 12 o'clock positions. Presented in a clear gift box, this casual timepiece is water resistant to 99 feet (30 M).
Wize & Ope officially landed on January 2008. The brand reflects a certain vision of the world and advocates the openness towards artistic cultures different from its own. It is also the result of many trips, discoveries, and meetings of different people, and most of all, the understanding that the "world is rich by different cultures, and that it is great to be open to all of them."
Music had an important role in the construction of Wize & Ope. It is through music, and cultural mixes that the character named "Wize" realized, for example, that the authentic hip-hop from Run DMC, could be mixed with Aerosmith pop-rock, regardless of preconceived ideas. The song, "Walk This Way", which used to be on MTV in the 80's has set the beginning of that quest for Wize & Ope. Wize is a character that travels around the universe in order to discover the world, its history, and different cultures. While travelling, he changes appearance and blends in with the members of these communities and cultures. He then transforms, or adapts, and becomes "Ope". Ope comes from the word "Open" for "Open Minded".
