What if I tell you that we don't know exactly what is "time"?
Consider this, if someone asked you to draw time, what would you draw? Maybe you'll draw a wristwatch or a clock ticking every second, or maybe a calendar.
Those draws will be just physical representations of the passing of time, but time is an enigma.
And what about Tempo? Cambridge describes Tempo as "the speed of a movement or activity". For us, is something that seemingly runs our lives and is unavoidable.
Aristotle was committed to the view that there is a time when the mind is aware that the instants of time are two. Moreover, he claims that between two instants of time there can always be another instant of time. In other words, Aristotle believes that time is continuous.
We believe that tempo is the infinity space between these two times.
That's why we consider a watch as a powerful tool that not only tells time but also communicates a personal sense of style and living. A watch makes a statement on who you are and what is important to you.
Inspired by the iconic clocks 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.
Our watches are created to be worn by people who love craftsmanship and design, and for whom ease of use is a requirement. That's why we are sure that our TEMPO is more than a blog, we want to take away the classic newsletter to crate an unembellished and timeless language for our people, that will not adapt to prevailing trends.
