Danish watch design, Zen philosophy

It’s appearance is beautiful in a simple, yet elegant way. Just below the surface you sense the wisdom of a thousand years integrated in the thought process, which created it. It is an Obaku Denmark watch.

Combining the long traditions for minimalist design in Scandinavia with the Zen tradition of omitting all superfluous details, Obaku Denmark is a unique concept, which asks you to forget time and let the moment rule.

The philosophy of Obaku

The idea that there should be a sense of calm and balance in the items we use to adorn ourselves is what gave birth to the Obaku collection. In Asia, Zen philosophies have given rise to a natural simplicity – in both thought and act. Obaku Denmark takes its name from a branch of Zen philosophy and has created a universe characterized by a sense of calm – free from all superfluous details.

The northern European countries have a long design tradition featuring functionality and simplicity of composition. Obaku Denmark has inherited the best from both these cultures, and has blended the simplicity found in both.

Merging two things in an artful way means getting rid of everything not really needed. Paring something right down to the bare essentials of simplicity and then giving it life, shape and texture.

Obaku Denmark is an exclusive collection of watches with a focus on simple, serene design.
