It’s that time of year again, where you are looking for the perfect present for your mother, your better half, or your father-in-law. What better gift to give than the gift of time? Here is a guide for what to get the design lover, the environmentalist, the aspiring queen, the distracted person, or if you are on a budget, but still want a quality gift.
FOR THE DESIGN LOVER
Here’s the perfect gift for that friend of yours who loves beautiful things. Obaku’s elegant slim line watches are all designed by Danish designers Christian Mikkelsen and Lau Liengaard Ruge. Featuring watches that are only 4,8 mm slim, Obaku has the world’s largest range of slim watches. These elegant designs feel light and very stylish on your wrist. This entire line has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Now just to choose the perfect colour combination.
FOR THE COFFEE LOVING ENVIRONMENTALIST
Check out one of Obaku’s newest watches called ‘KAFFE’. This cute watch will be a proper conversation starter. With a dial made of recycled coffee beans and a strap made of apple peels, here’s the perfect way to keep track of time in a friendly way. The dial is very unique. Held in one angle it looks like just a black dial, but when you turn the dial in the light, you can see the lines and grains of the coffee grains. If that particular design doesn’t suit your heart's desire or if you are looking for a gift for a guy, check out Obaku’s TRAE watch. TRAE means “tree” in Danish, and indeed this is the world’s first 4,8 mm slim watch with a wooden top-ring. This elegant, slim top ring is made of sustainably harvested Sapele wood and the watch is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. What’s not to like?
FOR THE ASPIRING QUEEN
Here’s the perfect gift for that woman in your life that just loves sparkles but doesn’t want to overdo it. The subtle, elegant Obaku designs are highlighted with just a little bit of bling in these feminine designs for your inner queen. Check out Obaku’s newest watch called DIAMANT, which showcases a sparkling, genuine 1mm SI1 diamond at 12 o’clock. Harvested from the depths of the earth, where it has been formed for millions of years, this small stone will save ‘I love you’ to that special someone, every time she checks her watch. Retailing from just $89 / €75 this is a sure winner. If you want even more sparkles, check out the SKY series. This series showcases 12 glittering cubic zirconia stones and a shimmering, genuine mother of pearl dial. Which colour combination is for your queen?
FOR THE DISTRACTED PERSON
Do you know someone who just can’t put that phone down or is constantly disturbed by a new message ticking in on that smartwatch? It is time to tell them to stop up, be present, and enjoy the moment. Obaku takes its name from a branch of Zen philosophy, asking you to be present. Every Obaku watch comes with a note asking you to JUST BE. That is why ANY Obaku watch will be perfect to take your mind off the incoming messages or those cat videos on Youtube. Check out the entire range for him or for her.
QUALITY GIFT ON A BUDGET
You want to give a gift that will last for many years and be adored every day. All of Obaku’s watches are made in corrosion-resistant stainless steel and the high precision Japanese movements will last you a lifetime. Starting at just $79 / €69, there’s a gift for everyone. Check out our TANG, BRINK, and MARK series for men and women. Or for that special gift starting below $100 / €90 for women, take a look at MYNTE, SYREN, or LIV.
