A new range of watches manages to combine an understated and classic style and be affordable at the same time.
Designed in London, Unknown watches have that easy and elegant day vibe that you’ve been searching for and has been so hard to find. Drawing on inspiration from the worlds of art, fashion and vintage designs, these new timepieces are well designed and crafted using handpicked quality components. Showing a determination to create the best product possible, each piece is sketched, scrutinised and modified so that it is just right.
The debut collection features five styles that bear similar hallmarks – they are all minimal and classic in their design. “The Classic” focuses on refined and clean design with its brushed and polished finish. More of a statement piece, “The Engineered” blends stainless steel with a detailed dial and striking inner dials. “The Modern” is inspired by architecture whilst “The Urban” has more of a street fashion feel. Something altogether different comes via “Natural Science” which features illustrations and curated images of animals and insects.
With prices from £80, these watches are the epitome of classic and affordable.
