The world of Cyberpunk 2077 has changed the way how we look at, well, yeah, the whole genre, which is also known as cyberpunk. Futuristic fashion, geeky gadgets, and flashy body modifications gave the game a truly unique look and feel. The game did not work perfectly on the launch day, but by now, it’s truly worth playing. So how could you get a little bit of Cyberpunk 2077 into your everyday life? Cosplay is a good choice for festivals and events, but maybe not everybody is ready to don a full-body costume for work or school. So, how about a Cyberpunk 2077 watch?
Cyberpunk 2077 studio CD PROJEKT worked with the Polish NFT watch brand Błonie to build a limited edition cyberpunk-esque watch. It’s not a wearable gadget, and it’s not a smartwatch. The watch, named T-2077, possesses a blockchain-based digital passport that serves as a digital certificate of authenticity based on the Ethereum blockchain. The watch will be available starting today, December first, 2021, for pre-sale for a price of $499 at the official CD PROJEKT RED GEAR online store.
The Cyberpunk 2077 watch T-2077 open path to future of fashion
The design of the T-2077 watch is simple yet sophisticated. It’s made of lightweight titanium and features a yellow LED display that will display the digital time in numeric figures in a classic way, just like the very first digital watches did, just a bit more flashy and futuristic. You can also switch from 12-hour mode to 24-hour mode if you prefer that, but there is not much that you need to fiddle with. The exciting aspect here is more on using the Ehtereum blockchain and authenticating the watch as an NFT (non-fungible token). This will be done with the help of partner Piksel.art, who will create the T-2077 NFT by leveraging the Arianee protocol.
It’s a pricey timepiece for sure, but that is not unusual for limited-edition goods for fans of a popular franchise. It’s also interesting to think about how maybe more of the products that we use today could use blockchain technology to serve as a modern serial number. It could also prove that the product might be manufactured with sustainability in focus to trace the origin of parts, for instance. The T-2077, to me, is not only a watch that looks cool, but it’s also a glimpse into how the future could look like – maybe.

Thoughts of the partners
In writing, we received the following statement from Błonie about the T-2077 watch project, “We approached the CD PROJEKT team with a concept for a watch that we felt would seamlessly blend in with the streets of Night City. I believe we have achieved just that. As a Polish watchmaker, it is a dream come true to work with a world-renowned video game company and one of Poland’s largest companies. We are very happy that CD PROJEKT took the time to actually create a watch from scratch with us, rather than choose to simply customize an existing model.”
The technology partners at Piksel.art stated, “Since time immemorial, craftsmanship has been the sole property of the physical world. We need not look further than the watchmaking industry as an example of this. Now, thanks to blockchain technology, the possibilities NFT certificates unleash are boundless for any creators of physical products.”
