hand made scandinavian eseloheimo time engines

hand-made scandinavian ‘eseloheimo time engines’


made in finland by eloheimo time engines, the aesthetic appearance and simplicity of machines combined with scandinavian design represent the core of these watches. the main idea of the father + son collaboration was to produce simplistic and unique handmade timepieces that would not be bound by traditional ways of doing things.


machined from a solid piece of stainless steel, the case and the movement is sealed with a thick impact resistant crystal. the minute indicating disc reveals part of the mechanics underneath as time elapses while the hour hand rotates around it. although the shape is angular, the ergonomics of the piece are elevated thanks to the wide straps and the in-case crown.
