Timeless is a Swiss watch brand founded by Maël Oberkampf, a freelance graphic designer with an immense experience in designing wristwatches, cars and yachts.
The brand offers Swiss made mechanical luxury watches with original and attractive design features, but in an affordable price range. Both beautiful and functional, these timepieces take inspiration from the Swiss industrial heritage that has made Switzerland as a pioneer in technological innovation. Maël Oberkampf is known for his designs for high-end Swiss watch brands like Richard Mille and Antoine Preziuso.
Designed by Maël Oberkampf, the Timeless watches prominently follow a contemporary design aesthetic with an avant-garde touch, and yet rooted in the codes of classical design. This approach ensures a timeless appeal to these distinct timepieces. Each Timeless watch is a meeting point of the various concepts of watch design, 20th century industrial design and architecture.
The brand utilises top quality materials for manufacturing its watches, for example stainless steel, 4N pink gold, calf leather and sapphire crystal. Each Timeless watch is equipped with a robust and reliable Swiss self-winding movement. For the finishes and decoration, the brand employs top-of-the-range techniques, combining traditional guillochage and contemporary micro-blasting.
The Timeless HMS watch has a 41.50 mm diameter stainless steel case with curved screwed-in-lugs highlighted with touches of pink gold. Top glass is scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and rear-side of the watch is secured with a screwed-stainless steel caseback featuring Timeless logo and numbering.
The multi-part crown at 3 o’clock boasts the brand’s tourbillon styled logo. This unique crown incorporates a black PVD outer structure with flywheel styled edges and an inner core made with steel and pink-gold. The watch also features a small plate with serial number, on the left side of the case.
Beneath the convex sapphire crystal glass, the watch displays a multi-layer dial design. The central opening offers glimpses of the mechanical movement including the decorative hour-wheel. Hour, minute and seconds hands are centrally positioned. The middle dial-ring features guilloche decoration and a small yet distinct round-shaped hour-window at 6 o’clock. The circular satin-brushed outer-dial ring features hour-marker numerals and minute track.
Presently the brand offers its HMS watch in two dial versions based on the finishing of the outer-dial ring: matte white (HMS 001) and anthracite (HMS 002).
Fitted with calf leather straps – HMS 001 with brown colour strap and HMS 002 with anthracite colour strap – these models are limited to 250 pieces each.
The Swiss-made automatic movement provides a power reserve up to 44 hours.
Retail price starts at 1,450 CHF.
