It would seem to us here at Coolector HQ that Swedish watchmakers are like buses – you wait for one to come along and then four come along at once. No sooner had we featured the likes of Tuseno and Vestige watches here on the pages of The Coolector that we find ourselves gravitating back to Scandinavia again to discover another first class watchmaker. The brand in question this time goes by the name of Maen Watches and the quality of their wares, particularly if you like minimalist watches, is second to none.
Maen Watches herald from Stockholm, Sweden, and are named after a story that in 1609 the Dutch ship Halve Maen (‘Half Moon’) was responsible for discovering New York City and, in doing so, changed the course of history. Taking their design inspiration from this story, Maen Watches took the decision to deliver a watch brand that isn’t afraid to go its own way and take the path less travelled.
As we mentioned, we seemed to have featured a fair few watchmakers from Sweden in the past few weeks here on the pages of The Coolector and Maen are another that manages to achieve style perfection with their understated, minimalist Scandinavian style which positively shines through in their impressive line up of timepieces.
The brand may be based in Stockholm but they are from Dutch heritage so they’ve managed to expertly intertwine famed Scandinavian minimalist with the Dutch pioneering spirit and finished things off with a sprinkling of dapperness derived from their love of New York City.
Any man on the hunt for an uber-cool, sleek looking timepiece that is made in the right way and boasts first rate materials will not go wrong with the superb array of timepieces on offer from Maen and we’re loving their Classic Moonphase watches in particular here at Coolector HQ. These Moonphase watches boast some incredible features which include Swiss made, Ronda movements, top quality Italian leather straps, 316L stainless steel casing, moonphase complications and 5ATM water resistance. And, somewhat extraordinarily, are available for under £300.
Watch This Space
A relative newcomer to the world of watchmaking, Maen have certainly not been resting on their laurels and have already delivered a mighty striking selection of minimalist style, classical watches and we can’t wait to see what else they’ve got in store for 2017 and beyond.
Sweden was, perhaps, not the first place we thought of when it came to quality watches here at Coolector HQ but the likes of Maen are definitely playing their part in helping to change this perception and the quality and distinctive style of their glorious looking timepieces really is unparalleled.
If you’re on the lookout for a top notch timepiece for yourself or as a gift this Christmas, we’ve no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the magnificent watches from Maen and there are plenty of different styles to choose from so your sure to find the perfect one for you or a loved one.
