Rönkkö Steel Labyrinth

Finnish watchmaker Antti Rönkkö unveils his brand new Steel Labyrinth timepiece. His creations are inspired from the famous “Finnish Silence”, which is ethnologically rooted from the appreciation of others and it means the aware creative fermentation of thought.

His new model is inspired from the Labyrinth structures and designs. In Greek mythology the Labyrinth was an elaborate structure designed specifically to contain the Minotaur, the mystic beast – part man and part bull – dwelt at the very center of the Cretan Labyrinth.

The Labyrinth symbols, structures and designs were widely used in history and it can be found in modern structures also. This symbol has appeared in various forms and media (petroglyphs, classic-form, medieval-form, pavement, turf, and basketry) at some time throughout most parts of the world.

Labyrinths in sacred sites around the world are also used to help to achieve a contemplative state of meditation Antti Rönkkö incorporates these designs in his new watch model, Steel Labyrinth.

The Steel Labyrinth, which features the meditation friendly Labyrinth dial, can also be used as a tool for contemplation. The practice of meditation is proved to be the best way to gain self-knowledge and insight. Solving the Steel Labyrinth can be thought of as a personal pilgrimage; one can follow the path, ascending toward a quiet mind and deeper inner knowledge.
