Are you all about making a difference in the world? Does your idea of a perfect holiday include backpacking through the wilderness? Are you crazy about exquisitely designed, minimalist timepieces? Then look out for the stylish wristwatch line of IKKA, an up-and-coming watch brand on a mission to change the world.
Created out of a passion for high-quality analog watches and a desire for a greener tomorrow, IKKA is a brand aimed at city-dwelling thrill-seekers who want to take back control over their most valuable asset (time), and who have a special place in their heart for Mother Nature. After every watch sold, the company plants a princess tree (a species known for their fast growth rate) sapling through their network of tree planting organizations, but you can also ask them to deliver it straight to your doorstep.
“We always knew we wanted to do something that changes the world for the better; to come up with a product that brings a true value to not just its user, but to the whole planet – we just couldn’t figure out what it was. Finally, in 2019, we had our light bulb moment: let’s create a watch brand that offers more than just stylish timepieces, and give nature one more tool to heal itself with. Hence our commitment to plant or deliver a tree after every purchase.
“When our customers look at their watches, we don’t want them to think about the ticking of time. We’d like them to embrace the power of now. Because only by focusing on the here and now, can they really start living their life to the fullest,“ said Sylvia L., one of the founders of IKKA.
Guaranteed to last by a two-year warranty and Japanese movements, IKKA watches combine engineering prowess with sleek sophistication, allowing their users to wear their love for the environment on their wrists.
The brand is currently in the product prototype development phase, and is looking for backers through their Indiegogo page to be able to go into mass production and start shipping. For more information about the brand and their classy timekeepers, head to IKKA’s official website.
