The LD 1.0 by Kitmen Keung, a perfectly minimal time piece

When it comes to high end watches, most tend to take a more minimal approach to their design. Off the top of my head I’m thinking about the watches made by Uniform Wares, though the brand new LD 1.0 by Kitmen Keung is certainly giving them a run for their money.

Based out of Hong Kong, Kitmen Keung has further simplified the watch but giving it a bit more value. Made for those who are always on the go, the watch features two clocks in one, allowing you to stay synchronized no matter where you happen to land.

The work that goes into making each LD 1.0 is a partially machine, partially craft process which results in each piece a fine individual work with subtle differences. The watch features a two-part lugged 39 mm stainless steel case with chamfered bezel in brushed finish, housing a pair of two individual 3-hand quartz Japan movements with the second hand removed from the right hand side clock face. The off white brass dial paired with greyish aluminum hands and layered indexes are entirely in matt paint finish.

I love that the second face is made in more muted, grey tones which give a nice hierarchy to the piece. It’s a subtle detail that certainly helps you remember which of the time zones is your primary one. Lovely details, perfectly executed. You can snag one in silver or gold by clicking here.
