A POETIC TIMEPIECE THAT REMINDS US THAT MOMENTS MATTER.

Relax by StudioDWAS

We've designed a minimal watch, made of the highest quality machined parts and the best available Japanese movement. The top glass is beautifully blurred, giving you a moment of pause and intention when you need it the most.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD LIFE?
A good life for us means being able to enjoy every moment of it. To be able to dream, to let time pass and to leave time for the unexpected. A good life for us means to be able to free ourselves from time pressure, which we all know so well from our busy daily lives. Would it not be great if time became stretchable, blurry and undefined, to be able to enjoy the beautiful simplicity of a moment just a bit longer?

Room to dream, room for the unexpected

Freedom from time pressure

Freedom from the busy daily life


Enjoy moments just a couple of seconds longer.

MOMENTS MATTER
Relax by StudioDWAS is time made poetry – a simple reminder that moments matter. The top glass is beautifully blurred, giving you a moment of pause and intention when you need it the most. It reveals only the time you need to know – nothing more

Time made poetry

Frosted glass

A moment of pause and intention

Live in the moment.

With our design, we created a timepiece that encourages people to pause and consider. Every moment you look for the time, is more than just looking at a watch. 
FROSTED GLASS
In collaboration with Japanese watch manufacturers, we created hundreds of frosted glass samples to achieve the perfect balance of movement and time, simplicity and meaning. A carefully chosen combination of frosted glass finish, glass opaqueness, hands and watch face colour gave us the result we were aiming for.

THE MOODS 
How do we make time visible, yet just beyond our comprehension? How can we show impermanence in a directly emotional way? We needed a poetic, yet sophisticated answer for this deep message and found our inspiration around us. 

Our inspiration

When you look at Relax by StudioDWAS, it manages to give you the time you need to know, while also giving you the rush of being in the fog.

A MINIMAL DESIGN APPROACH
In a life full of complexity we intentionally designed a simple and minimal productthat sets the focus on the message: moments matter.

PERFECTION TO DETAILS
We spent many months discussing with the supplier about even the smallest detailsto bring this product to perfection. Plenty of prototypes were made and evaluated before we now have the final result in our hand.

For us, every single detail is as important as the overall appearance of the watch.

WHY THIS TIMEPIECE MEANS A LOT TO US?
This timepiece means a lot to us. In our current lives we pushed ourselves to always be one step ahead and to go further and faster every day. We simply forgot to see the beauty this planet has to offer. It took us quite some time to understand that we have toreconsider time and open our eyes again.
With this watch we are creating an intentional statement. We created a timepiece that encourages people to rethink time.

Rethink time

Let's redefine time together.
