OTO watches are not about telling you the time in extreme situations, it is about dressing up your wrist as a unique fashion accessory, an art object. Our goal was to make something unrivalled, something that challenges people’s existing ideas of how a watch should work. These watches demonstrates your creative individuality and with it you will feel different and be noticed. It is a work of art object with the purpose to please the eye and to be intriguing at the same time.
Designer own story:
‘I’ve been offering my watch concepts to watch brands and received the answers like “your design is interesting, but it is not for mass market. I realized that these refusals are, in fact, my lucky ticket! and, finally, I developed my own art watches!’ Andy Kurovets
How it works?
Both of the OTO watches designs reflect this intellectual and spiritual search and give one a chance to join the designer in its development.
