As one of the first independent micro-brand watch manufacturers focusing on minimalist watch design, Defakto celebrates its 10th anniversary. Since the beginning the company consists of only one person, 35-year-old designer and founder Raphael Ickler, who creates, develops and manufactures every model from A-Z.
Defakto’s success story began in 2009 with Defakto Eins, a polarizing single-hand watch with quarter-hourly scaling. The DEFAKTO EINS KLASSIK 10 YEARS EDITION is a special series of the Defakto Eins, the first watch of the Defakto collection. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Defakto, this original Eins is reissued in a limited special edition. The dials and hands used are still from reserve stocks of the original series of 2009 – therefore this single-hand watch is only available in limited edition.
The special series is extended by the new, high-quality 3-piece in-house manufactured Defakto watchcase, the cow hide strap made in Bavaria and the current 10-year Defakto Watches Edition handcrafted watch packaging in black with red fixing strap.
The see-trough caseback offers a sapphire crystal and the inscription “10 Jahre Defakto Uhren Manufaktur“along a running number of the series.
