Minimalist watches reflect the modern desire for accessories that reflect contemporary design trends and have simple, straightforward forms. For men that desire a truly minimalist watch, the current selection of watches on the market is often inadequate. Well-made, luxurious minimalist watches tend to cost a small fortune, and those that are affordable either aren’t crafted to last or just aren’t comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Valachio Watches is seeking to change that and finally offer an alternative modern timepiece that is fashionable, functional and still affordable for the average man.
Priced at under $200, Valachio Watches incorporate truly luxurious materials. The 40-millimeter timepieces bear Swiss Ronda 1063 mechanisms and are constructed out of 316L stainless steel available with and without IP gold plating. Sapphire crystal glass faces resist scratching, and the straps are luxurious full-grain Italian calf leather that is supple, yet strong enough to hold up to daily wear.
Valachio Watches is hoping to bring their line of contemporary minimalist watches directly to consumers through a Kickstarter campaign. The Canadian watch brand hopes to raise a little more than $17,800 through their efforts. At the time that this piece was written, the brand was more than halfway to accomplishing their goal, having raised more than $9,059. With 20 days to go in the campaign, Valachio Watches seems poised to successfully fund their launch, and there are still many rewards left for men who want to be the first to own a Valachio timepiece.
