UNDERSTATED YET DISTINCT
THE ARCANAUT WATCHES
These are automatic watches designed in Copenhagen Denmark and crafted by Swiss artisans of Geneva.
Their level of detail and finish speak of the heart and spirit of Swiss craftsmanship, and their style tells the story of Danish design where form follows function. The cases are unique and ergonomic, and the dials are clear to read. We try to combine the best of raw Scandinavian functionalism, with the precision and beauty of Swiss engineering. The result are unique watches that tells a story in every detail.
Uniquely crafted Danish design
One watch, 29 custom parts. When making something entirely from scratch and thinking outside the box through Danish design, the need for crafting entirely new parts are essential. From the iconic square crown to the screw-logs and strap, almost every part of the ARC I are designed and made from scratch. Setting ourselves apart from most other small independent brands, as nearly no off-the-shelve parts are being used in the ARC I. Even the ETA 2895-2 movement has been customized by finishing the rotor beautifully to match the industrialized look of
Scandinavian functionalism, and engraved with our signature rune symbol we call "The Twin Triangles".
The ARC I is our Nordic take on mechanical watches, realized through Swiss precision and ingenuity.
