Modern Classic Timepiece

The “Epic” concept watch features traditional shapes, colors and material finishes, yet is unconventional in the presentation of the time. No hands, no numbers… simply 3 disks of varying size (designated for hours, minutes and seconds) against a symmetrical burst of lines represent the hour. At once modern and subdued, users will find its style is easy to wear both dressed up or dressed down.

Recycle Your Run

Recycle Your Run

Wild in both function and aesthetic, Enko is a revolutionary running shoe which, with its two shock absorbers, conserves all the energy stored in each stride.
