It is unlikely that the average person will encounter a 24-hour watch in their day to day life. But for the adventurous spirit, few watches can claim to be as unique as the people who wear it. That’s just one of the many things that makes our watch the perfect timepiece for those who view time - and life - just a little bit different.
Timeless design is design that remains attractive as the days, months, years, and decades pass. We are confident that the First Season watch will still be attractive 15 years from now, just like our grandparents vintage design watches that still feels timeless and interesting now.
Our First Season model is a unique watch which takes its inspiration from the classic vintage era of the 1960’s. It effortlessly distinguishes itself through the 24-hour movement and dial. Protected by a domed K1 crystal, which blends the past with the present through its unique and timeless design.
The "wow" factor
Akerfalk Watches were born through countless hours of diligent effort with the design team striving to achieve a clean dial layout, complete with all 24 hours. The first samples looked great on paper, yet the ”WOW” factor was somehow missing. It took us months and stacks of sketches and samples to find the precise DNA of Akerfalk Watches.
We are inspired by classic Swedish design, and we admire brands like Fjällräven, Svenskt Tenn and Volvo Automobiles, just to name a few. It is the overwhelming majesty of Sweden’s natural beauty that permeates our very being and finds itself expressed in all that we create.
Set us apart from the crowd
This project started almost 4 years ago. At first, it was only a discussion between three friends about their common passion for timepieces. As these discussions progressed, however, the project began to gain traction, and we started to focus on how most modern watches in today’s market all shared a common generic design. We had to find a space in the market with something unique that would set us apart from the crowd.
