In these unprecedented times, the minimalist aesthetic could be just what you need to relax your mind and spirit. The minimalist look strips down all the enhancements to focus on what’s essential.
Minimalist watches are simple and elegant without compromising on functionality. Be forewarned, though. There are no bulky buttons, no confusing dials, or oversized straps. All that’s left are clean lines and an easy to read display that does exactly what a watch should: tell time.
Filipino watch brand (yes, it is!) LEUPP is a purveyor of sleek, minimalist watches for men and women. Each piece is a fine addition to any collection. Here are 8 of our favorites.
At just 7mm thickness and 38mm case size, it’s the slimmer and smaller version of the cult classic Kubo timepiece. The asymmetrical winder gives it a playful and unexpected flourish.
Kubo is available in Midnight, Umber, and Black/Tan.
With a subtle subdial and a modest logo on the back casing and buckle, Kaoru II exemplifies what LEUPP stands for: simplicity and refinement.
Kaoru is available in Walnut, Black, and Navy/Tan.
Observe every second repeat itself precisely and endlessly on the Imako II. Arabic numerals make it easy to see what time it is, while the interchangeable leather strap adds versatility.
Imako is available in Black, Umber, and Tan.
The Aoki is understated elegance on your wrist. The bold white dial provides a stunning contrast to all-black details while pronounced oblique edges add visual depth.
Aoki II comes in Tan, White, and Onyx Black.
If you appreciate painstaking attention to detail, then you’ll love Sato as much as we do. It’s a chronograph watch featuring a classic black face with two subdials located at the 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock positions. This watch pack comes with two interchangeable nato straps for a smooth transition from day to night.
Sato is available in Amber/Black and Sienna/Rose and Coal/Nude.
Minimalist watches are anything but boring; Umi is a perfect example. With a case size of 35mm and a case thickness of 7mm, the square silhouette is a nostalgic nod to the seventies chic while its stainless steel elements keep it timeless. The warm and opulent rose gold hue adds a feminine touch.
Umi is available in Grey (leather strap) and Rose Gold (mesh strap).
