“Why do we require a wristwatch? We own a mobile phone “you could say. We couldn’t agree with you more. When everything you might need on the go is stuffed into a little smart device, there’s no need for a clock strapped to your wrist. On the other hand, a stylish timepiece is unavoidable if you want to make a striking fashion statement. That doesn’t mean you have to go for a Rolex with a lot of gold and diamonds. We believe that less is more, and this is especially true when it comes to minimalist watches.
V03C Chronograph by Void Watches
The Japanese Miyota movement of the Void V03C Chronograph provides a delicate precision that complements the refined design. The supplied Italian Croco leather watchband gives this otherwise plain timepiece a subtle touch of elegance.
The wristwatch from Uniform Wares’ 100 Series
Uniform Wares’ most minimally designed timepiece is the 100 series. This understated accessory complements any ensemble without bringing too much attention by focusing just on design and function. This wristwatch is inspired by a mid-century design and has a 37mm Stainless Steel casing with a matt PVD coated finish, a Perfection Japanese Quartz movement, and more.
The Sometimes watch is a one-of-a-kind timepiece. The all-black design is only broken up by three contrasting white hands, including one that, the seconds’ hand, moves freely, giving the impression of being out of sync. The watch is made of black IP Stainless Steel and has a high-quality Quartz Movement for further durability. The wrist band slides through loops on the case back, making it simple to swap out the black leather or Kevlar band for another colour.

Even after 50 years, the Chronoscope is unquestionably unique.

Dieter Rams are perhaps the most well-known proponent of the “less is more” idea. He designed a vast range of electronic equipment for Braun, a German consumer goods company considered timeless examples of successful industrial design today.

It has a stainless steel case, a white dial with contrasting black hour and minute hands and a yellow seconds hand, a date window, a metal mesh band, Quartz crystal movement, and is water-resistant to 5 ATM.
