HYGGE Watches

HYGGE Watches are inspired from minimalistic Scandinavian designs and assembled using state of the art Japanese Technology. This watch brand was formed from the collaboration between the company P.O.S. and talented designers from around the world. In the Danish culture, Hygge is a fundamental aspect expressing a lifestyle where cozy, warm and friendly feelings are cherished.

Hygge watch brand’s catchphrase, “Designer’s and More”, conveys a commitment to the designer’s vision, the retailer’s business, and the satisfaction of the end user in equal measure. Based on this conviction, the watch parts company, Yukosha, was re-established as P.O.S. in 1987. Since its establishment the company has introduced many Scandinavian brands in Japan. Recently, the company launched HYGGE, its own watch brand created in the best tradition of Scandinavian design.
