For a lot of watch aficionados, an ostentatious timepiece just doesn’t appeal and it’s all about finding one with a touch of class and a minimalist aesthetic. Just because a watch is understated, that doesn’t mean to say it can’t stand out from the crowd and that’s something that is being proven wonderfully well by these great looking and well-crafted Jakhals Watches which are funding over on Kickstarter as we speak.
Jakhals are a Belgian watchmaker operating out of Antwerp and their functional, stylish and minimalist timepieces are a joy to behold and ideally suited to any man who wants a watch on their wrist that doesn’t steal attention and instead focuses on looking dapper and complimenting your own understated style.
Careful, Considered Design
Whilst some may assume that it’s easier to design a minimalist watch, this isn’t necessarily the case and an awful lot of consideration and care has gone into the design and subsequent craftsmanship of these Jakhals Watches funding in Kickstarter now.
They are made using top quality cellulose acetate which is made by Mazzucchelli 1849, a family-owned Italian company. This material was chosen for Jakhals watches because it is well-known for its use in all sorts of iconic sunglasses designs with the tortoise look. Each Jakhals watch is finished by hand and, as a result, no two will be exactly the same and this makes them appeal still further to us here at Coolector HQ.
When you consider the materials used in these excellent looking Jakhals watches, such as fine Italian leather straps and high quality stainless steel watch casings, it’s all the more impressive that you’re able to pick one up for under £150 on Kickstarter. Their quality speaks for itself and for any man that favours minimalist watches, this is one watchmaker that should well and truly be on your radar.
The Simple Life
There is a lot to be said for a simple, well made watch and that’s exactly what you’ll find with these wonderfully conceived timepieces from Belgian watchmakers, Jakhals. Expertly combining the best materials with honest, sleek lines, the Jakhals Collection funding on Kickstarter right now gives a range of options for minimalist fans including stainless steel watches with PVD plating in gold, rose gold and gunmetal black.
The range of timepieces were created by Belgian industrial designers Jeroen Depuydt and Nicolas Faes and boast an exceptional array of materials which include 316L brushed stainless steel and matched with a handcrafted acetate ring. A striking sandblasted pure dial imprinted with fine numbers immediately draws the eye and delivers the visual impact. An accurate Miyota 1L45 movement acts as the beating heart of these superbly stylish watches and a choice of straps of 18 mm vegetable tanned leather or stainless steel Milanese lets you choose one that matches your own style tastes.
