Driven by a belief in beautiful design, clever function and timeless product, Melbourne’s AÃRK Collectivehas released its inaugural range of timepieces for 2013 — three minimal, sophisticated silhouettes that aim for a perfect harmony between aesthetics and utility. Easy, refined and balanced, the Classic is offered in six colors for versatility and individuality, while the Timeless pays homage to luxury timepieces with its sophisticated lines and high-end sensibilities. The trio is rounded out elsewhere by the Iconic, a silhouette that references both industrial and avionic instruments for durability and beauty. Not just pleasing to the eye, however, each of AÃRK’s horological designs is formed from a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern techniques, along with trusted components like PVD ion-plated 316L surgical steel, Italian calfskin leather and precision Japanese Quartz movement. Those interested may purchase AÃRK’s timepieces now from the label’s website.
