Men's wedding bands are, in essence, simplicity itself: a plain band of some precious metal or another. But some gearheads aren't inclined to embrace simplicity. They might go for a more original material, like titanium or carbon fiber, but short of repurposing a piston ring, that's about the extent of it. Until the Gear Ring came along.
Designed by Kinekt, the Gear Ring doesn't just look mechanical – it actually is. As you can see from the video after the jump, the tiny gears across the face rotate as the larger gears that form the upper and lower segments of the ring spin in opposite directions.
A fresh take on a timeless classic, or the mechanized complication of simplicity? That's a matter of taste. The ring is available for $165 directly from the designer. Follow the jump to watch a short video clip of the ring in action.
