Pi Day celebrates the achievements and beauty of math and science
--Vanya Buvac, Cadence CEO
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 09, 2012
Catching the spirit of Pi Day, The Cadence Watch Company is pleased to announce the launch of their mathematically inspired Radian Watch.
“There is nothing as perfect and as beautiful as a mathematical constant,” says Vanya Buvac, CEO of Cadence. “You can feel that grace and certainty in all our watch designs, just as pi remains a constant for every circle. Pi Day celebrates the achievements and beauty of math and science, and I’m excited to see Cadence join a growing number of companies promoting that with a themed release.”
Instead of standard Arabic numerals, the Radian Watch features radians, another mathematical ratio (expressed as factors of Pi), on the hour marks. A subtly flowing Archimedean spiral provides added math style and makes this the perfect watch for Pi Day, and a great gift or purchase for math minds everywhere.
With its 4-Bit watch line, Cadence is on the forefront of geek chic and the Radian watch is another celebration and affirmation of geek culture. In this day and age, watches are more than just a way to tell the time. Great watches make a statement, and the unique Radian watch will subtly boosts your geek cred without sacrificing style and wearability. The Radian watch is more than just a superior timepiece, it is a conversation piece as well.
“In designing the watch, I knew that math aficionados would have no trouble telling the time, and so focused on crafting an original watch that is sure to stand out,” says watch designer Christopher Thompson. “I called out the angle measurements at each of the hour positions and stuck the eighths in there too. I put the subtle Archimedean spiral in the background because it's looks cool and graphs the equation r = a + bθ. Math geeks like me will love this watch."
Loving math and knowledge has never looked so good. In celebration of Pi Day, Cadence is pleased to announce a limited time 40% discount on the Radian watch: place a pre-order now at http://cadencewatch.com/radian-watch
It’ll be on your wrist well before Pi Approximation Day (22/7, or July 22... get it?)!

About Pi Day
Pi (the Greek letter π) is a mathematical constant, an irrational number that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Although calculated to several trillion non-repeating integers, Pi is often expressed by its first three integers: 3.14. In month-day date notation, this represents March 14, which also happens to be the birth date of Albert Einstein. According to a 2011 article in the San Francisco Chronicle, Pi Day was created in 1988 to attract visitors to the San Francisco Exploratorium. The designation has caught on: on March 12, 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed resolution HRES 224 recognizing March 14 as National Pi Day. The following year, Google presented a Google Doodle celebrating the holiday. Princeton University organizes an annual celebration and schools and science institutions across the nation are getting into the math fun too.
