Looking for the perfect go-to watch that’s reliable, functional, and actually looks good can be tough. But AÃRK Collective, a small independent brand based out of Melbourne, has created a dope timepiece that checks off all of the above. For AÃRK, it's all about "good design, long lasting products and connecting with likeminded individuals.”
There are three different collections currently available, each one leaning towards minimalism. The first is the "Classic," which has a sick outer shell made from the most durable PU plastic and comes in a protected internal stainless steel case. In other words, you don't have to worry about water damage and the shock of hard knocks. The watch is available in a few colorways, and a number of combinations of straps and faces.
There's also the "Timeless" collection, which is probably the most expensive-looking of them all. (AÃRK says it "pays homage to luxury"). It's available in gold, silver, and black finishes, and has a dope matte-coated hand. And as with the Classic, these come with an Italian calfskin leather band that gets softer with more wear. The third—and final—"Iconic" series draws inspiration from industrial and avionic instruments and has a stainless steel that's been PVD plated, essentially meaning it's tough as shit.
All of the watches are unisex, so why not cop one for yourself and get your girl one to earn some brownie points? Free worldwide shipping is offered at AÃRK's website, so make the move that'll get your wrist game crazy.
