If you're the type of dresser who embraces classic colour combinations, clean lines and simple silhouettes, you're going to want to get to know Monofore. The London-based brand, founded in 2019, is revolutionising the contemporary watch market with its minimalist timepieces that exude understated elegance.
Drawing aesthetic inspiration from old-school art deco-style rectangular watches, Monofore developed a modernised version underscored by a minimalist design philosophy. After two years of brainstorming and prototypes, it settled on its signature design – a curved dial and subtly-domed glass that eliminates shadows and creates space, with an invisible crown and stitch-free leather strap.
Fusing classic looks with a contemporary edge, Monofore's men's and women's watches are available in gold and silver, with a choice of timeless leather strap colours, including brown, black and and navy. Not a single detail has been overlooked: from the embedded crown that creates an unbroken line to polished stainless steel indexes that contrast with the matt finish of the dial to create texture and highlights. The lightweight construction means ease-of-wear: you'll barely notice it on your wrist.
Thanks to its clean, considered design, a Monofore watch is just as ideal for everyday wear as more dressy occasions – team it with anything from jeans and an overshirt to tailored separates and loafers. Free of any extraneous aesthetic details or fussy look-at-me gimmicks, this is an accessory that doesn't need to shout to be heard.
