Holistics approach

Cate & Nelson Watches are unisex, inspired by the iconic clock in the Stockholm metro system. In a similar fashion, Cate & Nelson Watches reflect the sobriety and honesty of Scandinavian design, with nothing else but the most important details needed to be a fully functional tool. As a studio that normally designs furniture and larger interior decor pieces, Cate & Nelson has a clear design language that is Scandinavian in style – but always with an international approach.

Timeless

"We gather inspiration from Cate's Scandinavian background and also from my southern European heritage. When we created the timepiece, we wanted to take away the classic watch elements and create a new design language for the watch. For instance, we chose to remove numbers from the dial, stamping out markings for time instead, giving the timepiece a cleaner look and feel. We gave the second hand an accent colour and placed the watch crown in a more functional and user-friendly position."

Design-oriented

"The timepiece has a discerning design resulting from a careful process in which we make functional use of every detail. Our watches are created to be worn by people who love craftsmanship and design, and for whom ease of use is a requirement. Another key aspect for us was to make the watch unisex, with well-balanced aesthetics that appeals to people all around the world."
