The HOARE Watch is a serious watch in disguise.
We wanted to create a watch out of a desire to make something that is considered so premium yet is normally very clunky.
Over time we Have looked at various watches, but wood became the obvious choice.
Its lightweight, its anti-allergy, waterproof, simple, looks great and has 4 very easily interchangeable straps, if your in a hot country like we are in Hong Kong then carrying around a hunk of metal on your arm in 35 degree heat is not anyone’s idea of comfort.
As the designer of the watch I quickly saw one major plus point which for me personally was a game changer, ok I have hairy arms like most men which makes wearing a leather or metal strap very uncomfortable, even painful as it strips away the hairs.
Our Nato strap which was originally intended for use in the military does not only serve as a really easy way to change the strap but is so well suited to being potentially the most comfortable material to wear in any conditions, its all super long so can actually fit anyone and can even be worn over clothing, we discovered that because its so long its necessary if you have a small wrist to double the strap back but that just makes the look even more finished.
The watch market is huge and aggressive, but we are wondering why, its not our intention to expose the big watch makers out there but you can’t help to realise when we can market our watch at such a low price, in a box set with 4 straps and include free delivery… for us its more about creating a mature but fun product that’s available and affordable to everyone, a well-designed product that works and carries the wow factor with it.
Clearly our focus is on Furniture, but we still love all things interior and fashion related. We will go on to develop many more watches alongside our furniture collections and hope your like what we have started.
