Aark are a team of four Melbourne-based creatives linked by family and a love of design.
Their influences are diverse but they share a desire to make objects that are lasting and unique. They are focused on simple forms, obsessed with tiny details and inspired by the challenge of balancing function and beauty in wearable design. Most of all, they love sharing their work with likeminded people.
From precision Swiss and Japanese Quartz movements to hand-dipped casings and soft Horween Leather straps, Aark choose and customise the highest quality components for each AÃRK timepiece.
Combining the values of traditional craftsmanship with the best contemporary manufacturing techniques, each Aark watches is made with care and made to last. Quality is often tied to beauty but Aark put just as much thought into the parts that most people won't see. They are not yet sure if this is a gift or a curse, but we think this is exactly what sets them apart. Design is in the details.
FROM THE DESIGNERS
Our approach to design is considered and organic. We understand that creating a simple form can be deceptively challenging.
Geometry and playful detail inform our aesthetic, but each AÃRK design is underpinned by an uncomplicated love of minimalism. Although it's never marked on our products, we hope that AÃRK's brand is expressed across our collections, and in each watch's originality, simplicity and refined detail.
