VOID Watches – Simplicity is at the core of their design philosophy

VOID Watches was originally launched in 2008 by Swedish designer David Ericsson. What started as a side project to a career in design and engineering turned into a full time job and eventually a small company. VOID watches not only tell time, they also tell the story of turning ideas into reality. VOID wants their watches to inspire, not only by how they look but by what they represent; the drive to always create and always improve.

A great example is the updated V01 Mark II, that stays true to the watch’s original concept, but with a number of significant upgrades: thinner case, sand blasted finish, sapphire crystal and improved water resistance to name a few.

The bestselling PXR-5 was originally launched in 2005 by british designer Michael Young. Its futuristic stainless steel case features a digital LCD display and is akin to a belt buckle that is attached to the wrist by a utilitarian, woven nylon strap.

Simplicity is at the core of VOID's design philosophy, a philosophy strongly rooted in their Swedish heritage. VOID prefers simple shapes and use materials that are best suited for the purpose. They pay attention to the details and we never compromise on quality. In astronomy, voids are the empty spaces between filaments, the largest structures in the Universe, that contain few, or no, galaxies. Voids typically have a diameter of 40 to 500 million light years, so large that we can’t even begin to grasp their vastness.

In this they are similar to the concept of time, something that is always present but not to be seen or touched, only to be measured.
