Here are further details from David Ericsson of VOID Watches:


VOID Watches V02

VOID Watches is a new, independent boutique watch brand launched in 2008 as the single vision of Swedish designer David Ericsson. VOID Watches has a unique take on watch design using simple yet expressive shapes, giving our watches an almost architectural expression. Just like a great building is designed to fit its environment, all VOID Watches are made to sit perfectly on your wrist.

A year after launching the successful V01, we are proud to introduce the new addition to our range, the V02. The V02 is the analogue extension of the V01 using the exact same geometry with a delicately proportioned half glass, half stainless steel front, but with a classic speedometer looking dial.

The V02 uses two ‘compass needle’ hands, the short hand representing the hours and the long the minutes as on any other watch. Each hand has one red and one white end where each color corresponds to the number with the matching color on the dial.

The design draws heavily on the Scandinavian design tradition using simple geometries and materials often found in architecture. The solid stainless steel case comes in four different colors/surfaces (black, brushed, polished and gold), the watch has a mineral glass crystal and the strap is made of genuine leather. The main objective has been to create a unique product using as simple geometries as possible and bring them to life by using honest, traditional materials. The movement is made in Japan.

VOID - In astronomy, voids are the empty spaces between filaments, the largest-scale structures in the Universe, that contain very few, or no, galaxies. Voids typically have a diameter of 40 to 500 million light years.

Congratulations to the winners! Richard Tomsett, Ian James Noble, Luke Tebbutt, Kate Edmondson and Alex Maxwell.

  • varsha

  • dushan

    variations in traditional/good move!

  • Looks like a copy of the Nixon “Murf”….

  • Sean Hamilton

    are you kidding me.

    go to the murf.
    released in 2005, i believe.

  • Chris Janzen

    even though they are similar (nixon and the void) the void looks much more polished and elegant. Both are nice but I do like the void better.

  • Jakub

    There was similar watch from Paul Smith in nineties..

  • My Precious!

  • Beautiful! I prefer the brushed steel or black but any one will be cherished!

  • Mac

    20 years ago they came with little calculators where the “void” is….. :)

  • bodkin

    it looks like the numbers move on the murf whereas the hands move on the void. the style of the casing is similar but the method of telling the time is not. i actually prefer the simplicity of how to tell the time with the murf but agree with chris that the void looks like a nicer product, if only you could combine the two

  • it just drive me nuts.i would like to have it and to be the one and only having it in our town.

  • Andi

    I can see myself stareing it down for at least 10 seconds till I can tell what time it is
