About the Designer
Hi there, it's Daniel here. I am fascinated with watches with minimalistic and subtle design. Being a designer of various household brands, I always look for full freedom in creativity to unleash my zest to the utmost. Through this soft-launch, I would like to share my passion on a series of design, which captures the essence of my ideology, with all watch lovers who embrace the same philosophy in beauty.
IMME = I’m me. Being original with a touch of unique style.
“Less is more ” is the key belief of our design philosophy. Good design is timeless and is closely connected with any individuals bearing the same fashion sense.
IMME is a brand dedicated to create lasting products through radically simplified aesthetics. We embrace passion with purpose, heavily influenced by urban styling and contemporary design. Balance, rhythm and proportion create a collection of simple, modern timepieces that are not only practical but also useful and beautiful.
Quartz watch with mechanical-watch-movement’s “effect”
The design of ‘Alden’ is classic with an updated modern twist. The watch adopts the Japan-made VH68 quartz movement. However, unlike normal quartz watches whose sweeping second hands move intermittently second-by-second, the movement of this watch is so smoothened to the effect that it’s second hand sweeps like a mechanical watch. Such feature, which is rarely seen in the market partly because of additional manufacturing cost incurred, adds peculiarity to this unique design.
Other Design details
The attention to details is reflected on each component. The clear dial face with subtle marking and branding, while index markers give a pop of contrast to the magpie metals, the sub-dials in subtle concave shaped formed by hydraulic press process.
The stainless steel case goes with sophisticated domed mineral glass to achieve the classic contemporary look. The shaved side of case creates the slim look and fits well on the wrist.
Our timepieces are intended for casual everyday use by individuals with an eye for street style fashion and a passion for honest, modern design. We also offer various combinations with strap and mesh of different colors to allow you to customize your own style.
Interchangeable strap construction
All watches are completed with interchangeable strap construction. It is an easy, friendly way for you to detach and attach the strap. Just slide the lever with finger on spring bar on the backside of watch. You can change your strap easily with no additional tools entailed.
Each timepiece is made of 316L stainless steel. Model 5102 and 5105 models have durable Ionic black coating. Sophisticated domed mineral glass and has 3 ATM water resistances. Watch movement is the reliable Japan Seiko VH68 with day, date 24hours sub-dials indicators.
