Joining watches from the likes of Junghans and Nomos, numerous other Bauhaus-inspired timepieces on the more affordable end of the spectrum have sprung up over the last few years, many of which use inexpensive quartz to bring the clean lines of the early 20th century design school to the masses.
Scottish brewery Innis & Gunn teamed up with Glasgow-based design firm INSTRMNT to create a limited edition watch whose case design, strap and packaging celebrates the former’s flagship beer, The Original. The initial edition of 50 watches quickly sold out, and the two companies released a second run of 50 pieces, available now at a pre-order price of roughly $232.
The watch features a clearly Bauhaus-influenced 40mm silver sunray dial with minimalist hour and minute tracks, a super thin black handset and black date wheel. Powered by the Swiss Ronda 585 3H quartz movement, it also features a sapphire crystal and vegetable-tanned German leather strap.
If you dig the pared-down aesthetic, this is a cool alternative to the more commonly available minimalist watches out there.
