Founded in 2008, VOID Watches is a Swedish design company based in Hong Kong known for producing a range of modern and vintage watches for men. The variety of styles on offer at VOID Watches is what really sets the brand apart. From classic quartz men’s watches to some of the best digital watches available, VOID Watches does a bit of everything to an extremely high standard. That said, the varied collection is tied together by designer David Ericsson’s love of geometric shapes, basic colours and simple materials. In this way, simplicity really is at the core of VOID’s design philosophy – one strongly rooted in the brand’s Swedish origins.
We know that buying a new watch is an important decision, after all it’ll be on your wrist everyday for the foreseeable future if all goes to plan. It’s a decision that requires a lot of thought and one that’s made much easier by having access to all of the information. That’s why we’ve decided to give a quick rundown of three of the brand's signature styles.
We love the VOID Watches V03D because of its striking simplicity. An open face features minimal dial markings, three hands and a small date window. This classic layout strikes a clear balance between form and function like all of the best vintage watches for men throughout history. In keeping with the classic style of this watch, we’re opting for a simple 18mm leather strap but you can choose a Milanese bracelet or a NATO strap for more of a utilitarian outlook.

For most of history, wristwatches have been made with small faces, it’s only recently that we’ve grown used to heavy, statement watch faces. It’s all a matter of taste, but there is something attractively traditional about a men’s watch with a small face. The VOID Watches V03P is made for those who appreciate subtle, timeless design but also like to stand out. This classic watch for men always gets great reactions thanks to its subtle but attention-grabbing style.

Digital watches for men are normally overlooked for something more sophisticated that will last longer. VOID looks to alter the perception that men's digital watches are temporary with the VOID watches V01 MKII. This model is the second iteration of the V01 which launched the brand back in 2008, so it’s safe to say that this is one of the label's signature styles. The men’s square watch, featuring a stainless steel case and half-size sapphire crystal, is recognised by design enthusiasts the world over.
