Understated serene elegance, tranquility and minimalistic design are the trademark of this Zen meets West design team from Denmark. Incorporating the famous Scandinavian minimalist design with the eastern Zen to create a simplistic but soothing and eye pleasing time piece is the goal of designers Christian Mikkelsen and Lau Liengard Ruge, two industrial engineers. The minimal designs actually make the product harder to produce because any and every flaw can easily be seen therefore, strict dedication to detail and quality are requirements for an Obaku watch to make it to market. A watch is something you have for years thus Obaku creates pieces that will last through fashion changes.
