MIAMI, Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Fuisz LLC today announced the filing of a Patent Application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect a Cipher Wristwatch.
The Cipher Wristwatch combines high level encryption functionality together with the craft traditions of mechanical and electronic watchmaking.
Richard C. Fuisz M.D., a partner in Fuisz LLC, stated: "We live in a time of surveillance of messaging and telephony. Browsing and Data Mining has reached nightmarish proportions. The result is the near destruction of privacy. Cryptography is a vital tool needed to retain private space. It is also a value statement concerning the less fortunate aspects of modern life."
"The addition of privacy enabling features to a fine watch is a most sensible union. Fine watch making epitomizes a commitment to conserving the best of the past. As an inventor and some time watch collector, I am pleased to combine cryptography with the watch mechanism. I believe the result will be equally pleasing to others. Commercially, our intention is to partner with one of the established fine watch brands for this unique offering."
