KEEKO Watch

The KEEKO Watch is an everyday basic wristwatch with interchangeable bands designed by Elmar van Zyl in Melbourne, Australia. KEEKO aim to produce quality, timeless and minimal designs with a strong focus on traditional objects which have stood the test of time. We spoke to Elmar about the brand and his beautifully basic wirstwatch:

Designed as the very essence of the watch; stock standard, brutally simple — void of all complication. I wanted to create a meaningful object which would never date, a timeless piece of design which could be passed down for generations. I think when we’re faced with instability and uncertainty we find comfort in the objects which form the core of our identity, a classic example being the wristwatch.

The KEEKO Watch is available in three variants: brushed steel, black & white, and double black, along with six different coloured wristbands. The watch feels significant and solid, the body is precision machined stainless steel, topped off with a chamfered sapphire crystal lens.

With such an impressive introductory design, I am excited to see how the KEEKO brand evolves. Outstanding work.
