"The important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win, but to take part; the important thing in Life is not triumph, but the struggle; the essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Designated as “The Inimitable Time”, the collection is an exquisite time memento that allows the beholder to create and insert their unique narratives, each unit is irreplaceable and eternal in the metaverse.
The collection consists of 366 pieces of one of its kind NFT that represent each single date (from 1-Jan to 31-Dec, 29-Feb included) of a year, the beholder of the NFT can redeem an actual NFC timepiece with inscriptions (a freely chosen year + description of the date) on the caseback and watch box.
