One of the most lasting (and positive) stereotypes about German people concerns their iron-willed dedication to absolute efficiency, and the new stainless steel Detail timepiece from Defakto does nothing to argue against the cliché.
Boasting an incredibly simplistic design, this minimalist masterpiece comes fully equipped with a 40mm case (water-resistant up to a depth of 50 meters), a smooth black calfskin band and a beautiful steel ergonomic clasp to ensure maximum wrist comfort for the wearer.
Also available with a PVD coating, effectively guaranteeing your timepiece a longer, happier life, the Defakto Detail watch can be bought with either a white or black dial, both of which feature a plain logo, with no-frills, numberless markings and a single contrasting coloured hand. The principal behind Defakto’s single hand is, according to Defakto designer Raphal Ickler, “to display the time with the minimum information whle being exact as needed… for people who do not count every second, for people who feel free to live beyond these rules.”
Manufactured in Pforzheim, Germany the Defakto stainless steel Detail timepiece is available for purchase now from www.defakto-uhren.de, where the options are given to choose the dial colour, and whether or not the case should be PVD-coated. Defakto also offer a unique “Print and Carry” service, where an individual watch can be printed out and tried on to test sizing and appearance.
An ideal Christmas gift for men with simple yet impeccable taste, prices start from €280 (approximately £227).
