In a world dominated by tourbillon watches and the most intricate intricate movements one could ever imagine, there is still a niche for timepieces that emphasize simplicity. Dubbed the Clean Watch, this barebones, yet profoundly more comprehensive watch is for people who value minimalism in everything they own.
Unlike most conventional watches that use the real estate of the watch face to display all the complex moments and all the symbolic elements, this one goes in the opposite direction. The watch face is as simple as you could even imagine with the 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock numerals engraved on the matte black, yellow or green dial. The concentric wavy circles on the dial give the perception of flowing time which goes well with its minimal theme. Like most common watches, this one also has the crown on one side which can be used to set the current time.

Indeed, the time on it is indicated by yellow, white and green hands, each representing the hours, minutes and seconds respectively. These spin on an underlay dial below the main watch dial that hides the movement – revealing only around 10% of the surface. The back cover follows suit with a sober design that is not surprising. The clean look of this rare watch is well complemented by the rubber straps that match the color of the chosen watch dial model in yellow, green or black.
I’m sure this cheeky watch will appeal to the masses who are now embracing a minimalist lifestyle which is pretty much all the rage among the current generation. Pair it with solid color clothes or accessories like fashionable headphones that will look super cool and you will get some infallible looks. So what do you think of this hot or not?
