Axcent Pocket Watch

industrial design

How to improve upon a classic product design and give it a new lease of life? It is a challenging exercise in design, but one Klara Petersén of People Products has executed beautifully with her design of this minimalist pocket watch, working in collaboration with graphic designer and art director, Tomas Carlsten.

Based on the idea that there are very few brands that make modern accessories that goes with modern three piece suits, Axcent Pocket Watch is a revised design of an iconic and classic product, maintaining the main design lines and characteristics to make it recognisable, whilst being extraordinarily simple and modern for our days.

Comprised of stainless steel with a durable sapphire glass face, the dial and markings are also perfectly integrated on the face. Axcent Pocket Watch was built to last and will keep ticking away whether it be worn around the neck or stowed in your pocket. Available in contemporary grey or classic bronze, each watch comes with an interchangeable chain or vegetable tanned leather strap, all presented in a clean understated box.
