Independent Melbourne-based watch maker AÃRK present a little something from their Classic Premium range that caught our eye. A gold watch can be a sad, flashy affair, the kind of timepiece worn by guys who own the matching medallion or a selection of sovereign rings. This particular model is a world away; brushed, matte gold plays against a black dial and gloss hands. We should mention this isn’t real gold but high grade 316L stainless steel, you’re cool with that, right? Underneath the tough case you’ll find a Japanese quartz movement with an independent second hand, a pebbled Italian calfskin leather band holding it all in place. Nice details by way of a triangular winding crown and hexagonal cut out on the hand. Find yours here.
