Mamnick x INSTRMNT – 01-MNK watch

November 19, 2015

In addition to their own, ever growing clothing and accessories ranges, Sheffield’s Mamnick are also unafraid of the odd collaboration, each of which always produces simple and beautiful results. And this latest venture with Glasgow’s INSTRMNT is no different, having culminated in a cracking timepiece.

Watches are tricky things – easy to get wrong and go overboard with, or get so bogged down in functionality that you forget they have to look good. Luckily neither are the case here – the watch is beautifully simple. There’s a touch of Braun about its look, and the overall understatement of the piece works in its favour.

The case is PVD coated, with a simple crown and elegant lugs (personally, I can not stand watches that don’t have lugs) which hold an 18mm black leather strap of German origin. This is contrasted with the bright white face featuring fine black hands (which unlike standard INSTRMNT watches are pointed to reference the two peaks of the Mamnick logo) and a polished brass second hand being the only concession to the black and white theme.

The watch is powered by a Swiss Ronda quartz movement (585 3H calibre) and is water resistant up to 5ATM. Finishing things off, the case back features the logos of both brands and the watch’s individual number. Pieces are limited to 150 units worldwide and are available now from the brands’ websites, for a more than reasonable £180.

    More often than not these days I find myself not wearing a watch. This one would be an absolute pleasure to wear though. Very elegant indeed.
