Klasse14: A Class Act Watch Company

View all 18 Photos

In watches, the specialty of the maker is often a testament to the quality of the design. Klasse14‘s specialty is in the broad range of solid products they offer. When one glances at the watches available from Klasse 14, the first thing that comes to mind is just how many different styles there are. From classic to modern to rugged to even futuristic, there is a watch here for every preference and taste. The company has taken their name to heart, and developed a unique class of watches that combine superior design with affordable prices. To achieve this high level of diversity, the team at Klasse14 has collaborated with artists and designers from all over, letting each one put unique touches into their own watch. These products are then produced on a small scale and for a limited time, avoiding the quality drop off that mass production can often bring. Our team got a chance to sample the Volare Silver model, which sports a novel conical face that bends out of plane like space-time around a planet. The minute and second hands are bent to match, giving a whimsy to what would otherwise be viewed as a sleek minimal design. The watch sports a Japanese quartz movement, which cuts down on cost and ensures more accurate timekeeping, and is water resistant up to 50 meters. But while a nice price tag can often mean corners were cut, our team found the build of the watch to be solid, and the design curious. But this sample is just one of dozens of models available from the company’s website. This range showcases both the beautiful history analog watches have had, and hints towards the bright future companies like Klasse14 are carving out for them.
