The slimline watch fit is making a comeback in fashion accessories, and we can understand why. A slimmer watch silhouette is more elegant and can be worn with any type of outfit, whether it's a casual t-shirt and jeans or a more formal dress.
We are proud to introduce the world's largest collection of slimline watches below 4,8mm - FOLDER and NOTAT. The blog will explore why you should add a slim-fit watch to your collection and all of the unique features that make FOLDER and NOTAT special.
What is a slimline watch?
A slimline watch is a watch with a slimmer case and band, giving it a more elegant look. Slimfit watches are incredibly comfortable and stylish because they offer a clean look that can be worn with any outfit.
Most slimline watches tend to be around 4.8mm wide. However, the FOLDER and NOTAT are both thinner than this and offer the largest selection of slim fit watches of this size.
Whether you're looking for the perfect ocean blue statement watch piece to complement your favourite suit or you're looking to add a touch of luxury to your everyday style with rose gold and Sapele wood option, we have the perfect watch for you.
Why choose a slimline watch?
There are many reasons why you might choose a slimline watch over a more traditional watch. Firstly, as we've mentioned, they offer a much more elegant look that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Another great reason to choose a slimline watch is that they are incredibly comfortable to wear. If you have a smaller wrist, you may find that traditional watches can be bulky and uncomfortable. With a slimline watch, you don't have to worry about this because they are designed to be comfortable and easy to wear.
Finally, slimline watches are incredibly versatile. Depending on the occasion, they can be dressed up or down, making them the perfect accessory for any outfit.
NOTAT features 12 bespoke crystals set in a tear-drop shaped face. At 30mm, this watch is the perfect size for a more delicate wrist. The NOTAT comes in a variety of colours, including steel, rose gold, and chocolate.
Why we love it:
The NOTAT is the perfect example of a slimline watch that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. We love the way the crystals catch the light and the myriad of styles there are to choose from in this collection.
In danish, FOLDER means 'folds'. The top ring on this watch is created in a wavy style, with 'folds' circling the sides of the timepiece. This gave the design team their inspiration for the name of this watch.
FOLDER is a slightly larger watch than the NOTAT, coming in at 32mm. The face is clean and simple, with a date window at 3 o'clock. This model is also available in a variety of colours and materials, including Sapele wood and stainless steel.
Why we love it:
The FOLDER is a stunning watch that makes a statement without being too loud. We love the unique design of the top ring and the way it catches the light. The Sapele wood model is our personal favourite!
