Minimalist design is something that we’re all about here at Coolector HQ and that’s definitely true of watches. There can be few better examples of minimalism in timepieces than these superb looking Objest Watches which are funding over on Kickstarter right now. Wonderfully understated and supremely stylish, these cool looking timepieces are a modern, Swiss-made automatic watch and PETA approved vegan, for the everyday design aficionado.
Funding on Kickstarter now and available for the great price of £110 for the quartz release or £325 for the Swiss-made movement, these Objest Watches add a touch of class to any wrist. The contemporary design comes in two complementary monochrome palettes and boasts the always impressive ETA 2824-2 automatic in the Swiss-made version, which we’ll be focusing on here.
These Hach V automatic watches manage to keep the signature simple, soft pebble-like silhouette of the brand’s previous collections, and boast double-domed sapphire glass, a concave dial and an extremely striking, open caseback. The rounded sides and cambered surfaces make the 42mm case wear smaller to keep the minimalist aesthetic intact throughout.
The Objest Watches on Kickstarter (£325) are fitted with scratch-resistant sapphire glass for optimal clarity and protection. Hour markers at 3,6,9,12 sit below and surface and are polished, with small dots showing off the indices in between. Thin controlled lines are printed on the concave surface of the dial which deliver a graphical pattern, while still being functional. The hands come in a contrasting matte colour, with the seconds hand featuring Objest’s signature reverse teardrop design.
Detailing of the pattern on the caseback continues through onto the rotor of these majestic looking timepieces from Objest which come in a black or silver finish. The lugless design is fastened to the wrist with apple skin vegan leather, made from a by- product of the apple juicing process in Northern Italy – so, if you’re into your environmentalism, this is a watch you can feel good about wearing.
Objest have deeply-held design principles which go a long way towards shaping and inspiring their wares – including these exemplary timepieces. Their dedication to material honesty guarantees a true expression of the inherent qualities of the finest materials which they always use. The focus on design simplicity delivers engaging clarity and elegant sophistication time and time again.
Available for the great price of £325 during the Kickstarter campaign, these Swiss-made Objest Watches are definitely to our liking here at Coolector HQ. If you’re in the market for a new, minimalism inspired timepiece in 2021, you’ll be in your element with these ones from Objest. Two thumbs up from us.
