The Prism series explores the idea of layering; juxtaposing transparent and solid materials in a pure graphic style. Playful in finish and unisex in form, this contemporary timepiece is an extension of AÃRK’s commitment to uncomplicated design.
The frosted, acetate outer encloses a machined metal case to create optical interactions and light refraction’s between layers. The twelve points of the inner dodecagon serve as hours markers, while the addition of slimline hands bring added accuracy to the functionality of this watch. Mounted to supple Italian calfskin leather for guaranteed comfort, the strap also features an improved pushpin attachment for easy customisation.

~the PRISM collection
Extending their commitment to uncomplicated design, AÃRK have introduced a new concept-driven series to their range of unisex timepieces. The Prism watch explores the idea of layering through the juxtaposition of opposing materials; transparent and solid.
Following the continued popularity of previous models such as the Classic Tortoise and Shell White, this release further celebrates the glass-like qualities of acetate by means of thoughtful functionality and clever design cues. Enclosing a machined metal case, the formed outer acts as a contrasting layer to create optical interactions and light refraction’s between the mediums.
The feature inner dodecagon—an iconic AÃRK motif—provides twelve distinguishable points which serve as hour markers, working alongside slimline hands to help facilitate effective time-telling. Matched with a supple 18mm Italian calfskin leather band for added comfort and a 38mm dial, the Prism watch is the perfect piece for everyday style. Boasting eight different colour ways and an improved strap with pushpin attachment for easy customisation, this series promises combinations to satisfy any mood or personality.
Understated in form, and executed in a pure graphic style that is characteristically AÃRK, the Prism watch is sure to become a new favourite amongst old and new AÃRK followers alike.

Combining the values of traditional craftsmanship with the best contemporary manufacturing techniques, each AÃRK watch is made with care, to last. Quality is often tied to beauty but just as much thought is put into the parts you’ll never see.
