The art of minimalist design is the backbone of the Classic. It’s easy, refined and plays around with colour to offer each wearer a character that best represents them. Perfectly balanced in design and function, this watch is a true representation of AÃRK.
The Classic’s outer shell is made from the most durable PU plastic, while an internal stainless steel case protects the precise Japanese Quartz movement from water damage and the shock of hard knocks. On top of custom-moulded parts that are exclusive to AÃRK, its unique look comes courtesy of an independent second hand, while matte satin finishing on both the case and the band makes the Classic soft to the touch and really comfortable to wear.

Focusing on simple forms and tiny details, AÃRK Collective timepieces are inspired by the challenge of balancing function and beauty in a wearable design. Most of all they love sharing their work with like minded people.

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.
