Time is your own with the W3 Lady’s Watch

The W3 Lady’s Watch is a perfect example of Mads Odgård’s design approach. The lines are clean. The materials and movements are made to last a lifetime and more. A quick glance at the stylish dial not only tells you the time – it also reminds you that in a world of competing brands, the brand of your watch is your own initials.

There is only one Swiss Made W3 Lady’s Watch for you. Your initials are printed on the watch’s dial. You choose between dial colours, bezel styles and leather straps. You easily change the strap and the bezel depending on your plans, your wardrobe and your mood.

 

The beating heart of the W3 Lady’s Watch is an automatic, self-winding movement produced by ETA, Switzerland’s premiere producer of mechanical watch movements. Examine the startling precision craftsmanship through the sapphire back. The W3 Lady’s Watch is produced for you in Switzerland according to our design brief and your specifications, by Roventa-Henex that makes watches for some of the world’s most exclusive brands and jewellers.

The logo? That’s your initials, of course.

The W3 Lady’s Watch. Tailored for you. Designed for your heirs. When it is time for your very own?

Mads Odgård Design

Danish industrial designer Mads Odgård’s philosophy is as straightforward as his many prize-wining designs. “How simple do I dare to make it?” he asks. Only then does he proceed to create objects that are a recurring joy to use every day. Each with its own clear identity and logic, all with an appeal so universal that they stand the test of time.
