The Design Process
We create minimal , modern watches that have an eye on classic designs but are always looking ahead.
Inspiration is taken from classic watches as well as looking further afield to iconic classics such as cafe racer motorbikes, vintage cars and Leica Cameras for design inspiration.
Working with leading industrial designers and factories to attain our design goals.
How to set up Date and Time
The time and date can be changed by pulling the crown out; one click for date (turning towards yourself) and 2 clicks for time (turning clock wise). Ensure you remove the plastic from crown.
All Simple Watches use Swiss and Japanese movements in our Quartz watches. You will need to adjust the date each calendar month, ensure this is set in the AM hours.
