MUW is the name of a new series of contemporary watches from the company Rosendahl Timepieces. The range consists of five watches: A pocket watch, three wrist watches and one for around the neck. The MUW watches with a pure and simple Scandinavian design are named after the first letters of “Man, Unisize, Woman”, indicating that the watches are suitable for both men and women.
The red dot award winning MUW collection is created by the Danish design firm R+K Salto, run by husband and wife Kasper Salto and Rikke Salto. Kasper Salto is best known for his innovative and delicious furniture design, and his wife Rikke is a successful textile designer. Together they have several award-winning designs in their respective portfolios, and now the two recognized designers has created five beautiful and unique watches called MUW, which is pronounced ‘move’.
The watches are made of stainless steel with mineral crystal glass and comes with woven nylon straps with colored velcro fastener. The wrist watches have movable hinge on the top and base for easy adapting to any wrist. The 44-millimetre watchcase have a soft and slightly curved back for extra comfort.
Kasper Salto explains about the design:
A watch with a chain tends to pull the hairs on the arm or can tear a shirt because of the sharp edges. We’ve completely eliminated this with the MUW’s almost shell-formed case back and off-center winding crown. It was important for us to create a watch range that is comfortable to wear, and smooth against the skin. This applies to the wristwatch as well as the watch that can be worn around the neck.
The awesome design, minimalistic expression and imaginative functionality makes these MUV watches perfect for the latest fashion trends. But the remarkable design will definitely also be a fashionable accessory many years to come.
