Introducing VOID Watches’s latest limited edition timepiece designed in collaboration with Dezeen

According to David Ericsson this collaboration has been a long time in the making. “When I launched VOID Watches in 2008, Dezeen was the first design blog to feature the brand. The positive response from the design community was the feedback that I needed to really pursue watches more deliberately. 

Subsequently, not long after VOID’s first coverage with the design blog it was one particular conversation between David and Dezeen Founder, Marcus Fairs, that directly led to the fruition of Dezeen Watch Store the following year. “I met up with David Ericsson from Void in Hong Kong and he told me all the benefits to selling watches,” Fairs wrote in a blog post about the origins of Dezeen Watch Store

Based off of VOID Watches’s ever-popular V03D case, the collaborative timepiece reflect’s both Dezeen and VOID’s minimalist aesthetic with its all black case, leather strap, custom buckle and white dial. The focal point of this watch is the simple pared down face, “we have reduced the graphics of the dial to the bare minimum so that it opens up more space for the hands, the contrast of the monochromatic colour scale also adds to this,” says VOID Watches Founder and Designer David Ericsson. “We stripped it back until it’s almost blank,” adds Product Designer Patrick Kim-Gustafson. 

Dezeen is the world’s most popular and influential architecture and design magazine, and the winner of numerous awards for journalism and publishing. Their mission is simple: to bring you a carefully edited selection of the best architecture, design and interiors projects and news from around the world. Dezeen was launched at the end of November 2006 and has grown rapidly ever since, with the addition of Dezeen Watch Store and Dezeen Jobs.

The V03D-DEZEEN is an individually numbered Limited Edition timepiece with only 200 available.
