This watch encapsulates the designer’s Scandinavian heritage within its geometric design

Championing a minimal aesthetic that’s authentically Scandinavian, Copenhagen-based Richardt Mejer’s Automatisk makes a bold statement even with its subtle, minimal style. Constructed with a form that’s dominated by geometric lines, and with a brushed-metal finish on both the inside and out, the Automatisk has a balanced design on the outside, and a STP1-11 Swiss Made automatic movement on the inside.

The Automatisk’s design showcases the watch face in its simplicity, with a 316L brushed steel body, and two overlapping metal plates with an anodized finish sitting right under the hands. Available in silver, plum, olive, black, and a matte grey finish, the watch face uses an interplay of colors to look bold, while luminova markings make sure the time is visible both in day and at night. The watch comes with a date window at its 6 o’clock position, maintaining its sense of balance and symmetry, while the linear markings and the smooth gliding second hand provide a minimalist appeal. Flip the watch over and you get a glimpse at the 26-jewel STP1-11 movement sitting underneath a sapphire crystal glass exhibition window. An authentic Swiss-made automatic movement, the STP1-11 provides a stunning accuracy of 28’800 vibrations per hour, with a rapid date corrector and a power reserve of 44 hours.

A hallmark of Danish design, the Automatisk is a combination of a geometric and a minimal approach to design. With no extraneous or additional detail on its form, the Automatisk’s design captures the pristine-ness of Scandinavian design. The watch comes in a variety of 4 color combinations, and features genuine calf-leather straps in both black and brown. A classic in every which way!

The Automatisk Watch Collection

A modern Danish designed timepiece with uncompromising geometry, craft, innovation in design and powered by a Swiss automatic movement. Their approach to design and quality hasn’t changed since the company was founded in 2015, and never will; still the same subtle lines, curves, and innovation in design. This time the team is stepping it up by adding the STP1-11 Swiss Made automatic movement to this new line of watches.

The Dial

Double layered “bullseye dial”. The lower level is a matte colored dial with fine printed line-markers. The upper level is a sunray dial with printed logo and date window at 6. Stair-shaped steel markers are applied at 12, 3, 6, 9. The markers are Part brushed and part polished with Super-LumiNova® luminous paste.

The Case

A solid build watch case in high-grade antimagnetic 316L stainless steel that comes in a brushed finish or a darker sandblasted finish. Scratch resistant Sapphire Crystal in back and front – an anti-reflective double coating secures a clear view. Water Resistant 5 ATM.

The Hands

Richardt Mejer Signature hands are used in all of our watches, this time with a brushed or sandblasted finish and Super-LumiNova® luminous paste pointers.

Swiss Made Automatic Movement

The Automatisk model is powered by the Swiss Made STP1-11 from Swiss Technology Production. A high quality automatic movement that features:

– Hours, minutes, sweep second
– Date, rapid corrector
– Stop second device
– Self-winding mechanism with ball bearing
– 28’800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz.
– 26 jewels
– Power reserve 44 hours

The development of the STP1-11 movement began in 2006 when the company was established. Today, their movements are used by famous Swiss watch companies.

The Straps

You can choose between two different strap colors, black or brown, both made of fine genuine calf leather with a rectangular padding and a matt surface. The straps are with quick release, so you don’t need any tools to change strap (see demonstration in the video below).

Design & Craft

Richardt Mejer is about developing and designing quality timepieces you won’t find anywhere else, and so is the Automatisk watch. All parts are designed and will be manufactured for this project only. It’s a long but rewarding process, but in the end, what makes the difference.

The Design for the Automatisk is building on the same principles as our two past collections, the Signature, and the Daily, but at the same time, nothing alike. We have developed a more aggressively angled case design that evolves from the flat sapphire crystal on top, and curve by curve eventually touches down on the wrist.

Feel & Wear

The Automatisk watch is a high-grade timepiece, and it feels like it. The Swiss Made STP1-11 movement is almost silent, it’s only when you put the watch up to your ear that you will hear that perfect machinery ticking away. When you’re wearing it, you will gently feel the movement rotor working inside and reminding you of its self-winding mechanism.

It is well proportioned and fits perfectly on a mid to large sized wrist.

There are four different color variants to choose from: Moss, Dark, Plum and Stone. They will be available with two different straps to choose from, black or brown.

The Igemon watch with ancient Greek numerals puts history on your wrist

There’s so much we owe the Greeks for. Probably one of the most impactful civilizations of the world, Ancient Greece is responsible for giving us democracy, trial by jury, geometry, philosophy, history (the first documented historian was a Greek), theater, and even the Olympics. The modern world would be a very different place had it not been for the Greeks. We’d probably still be monarchist, wouldn’t have proper documented evidence of historic events, no theater, no Olympic games, and would still struggle to wake up at a predetermined time of the day, because believe it or not, the Ancient Greeks also gave us the alarm clock.

Igemon’s watches give the Ancient Greeks the hat-tip they rightfully deserve. Designed as an ode to one of the greatest civilizations, Igemon’s watch face is the first to feature Greek numerals in a wristwatch. Designed with the finest premium materials, using geometric shapes inspired from Greek architecture, Igemon’s uniqueness sets it apart, and its celebration of its heritage gives it cultural soundness.

The watch comes with an anodized 316L stainless steel body in a crisp circular design. It features a sapphire crystal glass on top to prevent the watch from scratches, a Swiss Ronda 763 caliber movement on the inside, and sandwiched between the two, a pristine watch face with not Arabic, not Roman, but rather Greek numerals, a system that predates the former two by a few hundred years. The numbers are laid out in the traditional 12 hour format, allowing them to be easily read, while a radial artwork on the watch face denotes the presence of 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour, while also making a reference to the Greek origins of geometry.

Designed in two sizes, Igemon comes in a 43mm diameter for men and a 40mm diameter for women. The watches come with 5 ATM waterproofing, and sport an eye-catching mesh strap, with an Italian leather alternative too. Designed to be a fusion of history and art together, Igemon puts culture around your wrist, and comes with a 2-year international warranty.

This clock creates ripples in sand for the first half of the day… and then erases them

Think about the way you are in the day. You spend one half of the day working, interacting, eating, filling your mind with thoughts, and the second half disseminating, relaxing, and sleeping. The SAND clock by Studio Ayaskan is a beautiful representation of our time in the 24 hours of a day. With just one hand that makes rounds around the clock’s sand-filled bed, the SAND clock’s hand creates ripples in the sand as it moves along in the first 12 hours of the day, and then erases them over the next 12 hours, resetting itself just the way the human body and mind does.

The SAND is just conceptually and in execution, a brilliant installation that tells time. It sits horizontally, with a sand-filled base, and a steadily moving hand that has rake-like spokes on one side, and a flat edge on another side. For the first 12 hours of the day, from midnight to noon, the rake-edge of the hand faces downwards, gently creating a ripple in the flat sand for 12 straight hours. Once the hand reaches the 12 o’clock position at noon, it flips over to have the flat edge pointing downwards, erasing the ripples in a calming, meditative way, not only telling the time but also acting as a metaphor for how we are active for one half of the day and passive for the other, as well as the repetitive nature of each day being followed by the next!

Designer: Studio Ayaskan

The Puro watch is a no-frills, minimalist, time-telling piece of art on your wrist

With its pristine, bubble-like aesthetic, Puro’s quite literally calming to look at. “Free of superfluous and decorative elements. Evocative of the essential geometry of the solar sundial, in which the time is indicated by the shadow, that a stylus exposed to the sun projects on a suitably designed dial”, say the designers behind the Puro and they couldn’t have been more accurate.

Puro looks like plastic and minimalism met the sundial. With its bubble-esque form and the glass that sits on top of it, and pastel-ish color scheme, Puro is meditative and instantly evaporates any tension you may feel as you nervously glance at your watch. It only features an hour hand, because it doesn’t want you counting the minutes and seconds, and does a decent job of telling you the time, while absolutely melting away the stress of a busy day.

Designers: Fabio Verdelli, Manuel Frasson, Alice dal Verme, Hande Ozuysal & Sofia Citton.

These antique-inspired timepieces celebrate a century since the dawn of wristwatches

TMPL pays tribute to a golden age of wrist-watches. Inspired by the fine technologies, design cues, and materials of an era gone by, TMPL’s watches are a salute to a a long-gone past before brands, planned obsolescence, fast-scale manufacturing, and circuit boards were a thing. Watches made in the 1910s were truly cherished items, designed to last, especially given the nature of the times and the turmoil of war. Watches from 1910 were designed to represent the person wearing them, and were cherished generation after generation, often as a symbol of the person who handed them down. Watches were much more than time-telling devices a hundred years ago. They were storytelling devices too, and TMPL’s watches, made in the Nagano prefecture of Japan (arguably the Switzerland of the Orient), are possibly the greatest throwback to that era.

TMPL’s 1910s watch series show that design has the ability to age beautifully and that the aesthetics of over a hundred years ago can still look absolutely appealing. The watch comes in two variants, a Chronograph with 2 subdials, and a Small Second with a single subdial at the 6 o’clock position. Both watches sport a curved, circular 316L steel body with silver or gold plating, giving the watch its precious appeal. On the top sits a scratch-proof mineral glass, and below it, the watch’s classical retro-inspired design with beautiful, vintage-styled numbers coated with luminous paint, and azure blue hands that glow in the dark too. Under the watch’s face sit their movements… a Quartz Miyota movement in the Chronograph version, and a Quartz Seiko Epson in the Small Second variant, both built with magnetic resistance, a special feature that extends the longevity of the watch by making it resistant to magnets around you (they wreak havoc on the internal mechanics). Finally, on the side, the watches come with a stylized crown too, reminiscent of the watches of a bygone era. The Chronograph has two additional buttons to control the subdials.

Carrying the rich history of watches worn by people over a century ago, TMPL’s revival aims at being a history lesson on your wrist. Its classic, evergreen design hasn’t aged at all, from the time soldiers wore it in trenches, or in fighter planes, to now, over hundred years later. TMPL also in a way celebrates the 100 year anniversary of the wristwatch, when watchmaking technology compressed pocket-watches into a body small enough to be strapped on your wrist, allowing you to check the time while leaving both hands free! We’ve certainly come a long way, leaving behind a rich, glorious, yet elegantly simple past, and the TMPL watches are a reminder of that.

TMPL – Historical watches revived from 100 years ago.

1910s watch designs have been revived, with promised creativity and quality by Japanese craftsmanship. TMPL is a new watch brand, a product created through the collaboration of Nagano (in Japan) Prefecture manufacturers, who have long been involved in the production and repair of watches, and product designers with modern sensibilities.

“Wear the age,” the brand concept of TMPL, tells that watches are not merely tools for checking the time, nor are they simply status symbols or means of self-expression. The makers believe that wearing a watch today gives the wearer knowledge about the path that the item known as a “watch” has traveled far through global history, while at the same time imparting value to the watch itself and pleasure to the wearer.

The 1910s Collection

The essence of 1910s watch designs, realized in modern style.

Nostalgic form & contemporary styling.

1910S-SS01 small second

1910S-CG01 chronograph

Both the 1910S-CG01 chronograph model and 1910S-SS01 small second model feature a universal design that is unisex. The product line-up includes a range of color variations with different case-and-dial combinations. Select your favorite combination from 100 years ago.

In the 1910s, the custom of attaching a watch to the wrist had not yet become ubiquitous. It is said that people began attaching watches to their wrists as a means of making the watches less noticeable, and the watch fashion at that times was small-sized watches incorporating movements used in women’s pocket watches. Born from the idea or attaching a belt to a pocket watch, these watches have round cases and large winding knobs in which traces of pocket watch styles can be sensed. Keeping with this form, we are creating watches with a contemporary size balance while creating a sense of 1910s atmosphere.

Arabic Numerals & Luminescent Paint

The watches host a porcelain dial (the main materials used in clock faces in the 1910s) exude a sense of charm. Another characteristic of these watches is the luminescent paint liberally covering the large Arabic numerals, a feature incorporated in consideration of visibility when the wearer is moving their arm, such as a pilot operating an aircraft.

Cobra Blue Hands

Modeled on the 1910s timepiece, the cobra hands (as they resemble a cobra’s head) are coated with Blue Luminescent Paint, to give it the required visibility in the dark. Most aircraft and military timepieces from this era hosted this feature. The blue color of the hands is a byproduct of the technique used in the 1910s that was used to prevent rusting whereby the iron was scorched and oxidized.

Movement and Anti-Magnetic Design

Under the case is a high-performance Japanese quartz that factors in features like usability, accuracy, design, and reasonable price.

People are regularly coming in contact with magnets in everyday life through use of devices like personal computers and smartphones, many problems and malfunctions are caused by magnets. Many timepieces brought to Tokeiya Fukkokudo for repair are due to the damaging effects of magnets. Accordingly, TMPL watches have a special structure to protect the movement from magnetic forces, giving them the antimagnetic functionality of MAGNETIC RESISTANT4800.

Below: The Watch Details

TMPL’s First Model Resurrects the 1910s – The Watch-making Age

The 1910s was the era in which the First World War took place, seeing the use of wireless battle command transmissions for the first time in human history. In this historical context, the pocket watches that had been the mainstream watches up until then became inconvenient to use, leading to the birth of watches that enabled the wearer to quickly check the time while leaving both hands free, and these watches gradually spread into general use.

Features like the distinctive round form, dial designs, and winding knob shapes seen in watches from this era also show traces of the pocket watches that had previously been the mainstream.

Japanese Technology, High Quality and Reasonable Pricing

– All this is possible thanks to the technology and craftsmanship of Nanan Seiko Co., Ltd., which has been involved in the production of ultra-precision devices over many years in the watch-making region of Nagano.

– In order to manufacture and repair watches, both precise cutting-edge technology for processing parts and the meticulous handwork of craftsmen are essential.

– As a manufacturer of ultra-precision devices and precision parts, Nanan Seiko Co., Ltd. has over 30 years of experience in processing and assembling not only watches, but also tiny delicate parts smaller than a grain of rice that are used in automobile and electronic equipment parts.

– TMPL watches are produced based on this track record for performance and reliability.

Legacy Behind The Watches

In their desire to pass down to future generations the watch-making craftsmanship and experience that has been cultivated in Nagano of Japan over generations, ensuring that the soul of the industry is preserved, a joint project was launched between watch manufacturer Nanan Seiko Co., Ltd. and product designer Creative Association: CEKAI.

At the core of this project lies the stance of paying tribute to the path of history traveled by watches and the people who have been involved with watches also this journey.

“TMPL” derives from the English word “temple”. This name was chosen out of our desire to create a place where people who respect and love watches’ long history and the achievements of those who have shaped this history can gather.

The JW-EX watch is sheer mechanical joy for the analog-lover

Every part of every watch of the JW-EX series was custom-designed to titillate your senses. The JW-EX watch obsesses over the magic of mechanical movements so much, that it’s literally called EX, or short for exaggeration.

Designed out of a love of complex mechanical movements and complications, Jason Chan of Jason Watches designed the JW-EX, the ultimate homage to spinning wheels, rotating gears, actuating springs, and multiple intricately shaped and assembled metal pieces dancing together in absolute synchronicity to depict the movement of time.

Not a single part of the JW-EX is pre-made. Every single bit of the JW-EX is made bespoke, giving you a watch that is unique in every right, from its construction to even the time-telling experience, because the JW-EX reinvents that too. Using the color red to denote the time, guiding you through the process of reading it, the JW-EX splits time into its fragments. Hours, minutes, and seconds sit at different locations on the watch, unlike traditional timepieces that use the concentric dial-and-hands method. Giving minutes the priority (because that’s what you tend to focus on the most) the watch puts the minutes counter right on top. To its bottom right sits an hour gauge, while the bottom left lies a rotating seconds disc that also lets you take a peek at the watch’s tourbillion right on the front.

The JW-EX uses a specially developed movement called the JW-7100 custom developed for the watch itself. It allows the JW-EX to be as brilliantly exaggerated, eccentric, and extra as it is, allowing hours, minutes, and seconds to all work in their independent zones, while also giving you a taste of the mechanical action in the seconds window as you tell the time. The JW-7100 comes with an 80 hour power reserve, and 5 ATM of water resistance. With 21 jewels, and an incredibly precise and intricate movement (visible from both the front and exhibition back) Jason believes it’s virtually impossible to own a movement this unique and bespoke at its competitive price tag, thanks to the disruptive power of crowdfunding.

The JW-EX comes in a 46mm wide 316L Stainless Steel case, with 4 Sapphire crystals covering the three displays on the front and the exhibition window on the back. Designed to pay an homage to the pre-electronic era of mechanical glory, the watch comes in a vintage-inspired almost-steampunk design with a steam-engine style gauge, and plate-pieces that sit on top of the steel body, almost as if they were riveted in place. The crown’s shifted to the 6 o’clock position, to exaggerating the watch’s bespoke, unique design, while the 1 year international warranty stands as a testament to Chan’s commitment to building and delivering timepieces of the highest quality!

Apple Ancestry! This Apple Watch stand makes it look like an iPod Classic!

Designed as a pretty nifty throwback to Apple’s golden era of the iPod, Elago’s W6 stand is a perfect tribute to one of Apple’s most ground-breaking products ever! The W6 is a part of Elago’s rather remarkable throwback series of stands for the watch, ranging from stands that resemble the Macintosh Computer to the gloriously colorful iMac G3, to even the Nintendo GameBoy.

The W6 takes on a more recent ancestor of the Watch, the iPod Classic, which made its debut in 2001, nearly twenty years ago! A modern reinterpretation of the old plastic-and-metal device, the W6 stand is tiny, and comes made from silicon, allowing it to flex as you slide your Watch in, and preventing it from accidental bumps or scratches with its shock-absorbing exterior. The W6 is universally compatible with all Apple Watches and even lets you slide the Watch charger inside too, so your Watch can charge as it docks in its new-old home! A perfect Wayback Wednesday product, I’d say!
