Founded by two young entrepreneurs – Christopher and Corvin – Slow is a Swiss watch brand which produces exceptional and innovative one handed wrist watches for those who want to live life slow.
Inspired by the ancient sundials, the one handed watch developed by Slow displays time with a single hand and its pure dial features no visible logo. Designed to simplify the fast paced lifestyle of this modern era, this quartz powered Swiss made watch, which comes in 15 styles, and features an 24hour face, and its hour hand appears to move at half the speed of a 12 hour watch, whilst keeping the correct time.
Each model is unisex, 100m water resistant and exquisitely crafted in stainless steel. Although the watches are not outwardly branded, there is a discreet logo, hidden underneath the case of the watch, which simply says ‘slow’.
Every slow watch has a Swiss made GMT precision quartz movement with a 24 hour dial, allowing wearers to see the entire day in one view. Available in silver, black or gold-‐plated stainless steel, the watch comes with either a cream, black or silver face. Stylish and interchangeable straps are available in stainless steel, Italian calf leather, canvas and nylon. Prices, inclusive of shipping, start at £190 for a slow watch with canvas or nylon strap, to £200 for leather and £230 for a stainless steel band.
The substantial, but not oversized, watch suits both men and women and can be matched with both formal and casual attire. Weight is between 65g (for leather, canvas and nylon straps) and 125g (for Metal straps).
The guys behind slow watch brand are Christopher and Corvin from Germany, as well as watch designers May and Gabriele from Switzerland. They developed a watch that reflects their attitudes to life.

The case is die-cut from solid stainless steel and milled. The case features a special top-loader design, so that the back is fully integrated.
