NORTH.er

The compass and timepiece share a common innovative significance. But for ages, non-digital wrist compasses were developed for the military without having the capability of telling time. These vintage wrist compasses inspired us to create the NORTH.er. A timepiece built for the explorer, allowing directional and timekeeping assistance with seasonal accuracy. Exhibiting a design language that communicates yet another incredible utility that mechanical horology has to offer. The NORTH.er is capable of assisting one’s sense of direction while also serving as a multi-time-zone GMT.

Today, the compass and timepiece have obtained a broadened purpose - serving as tools for survival and symbols of tradition. With the NORTH.er, we combine the two tools and their according design languages. Offering a GMT with maximum versatility. Suiting the needs of outdoor explorers and accomplished professionals alike. 

While technology today makes the use of a mechanical watch or compass obsolete in the field, the use of them today speaks to the appreciation we have for non-digital gadgets.

With a cage above the crystal, the compass and timepiece were both carried in the field by soldiers. For ages, non-digital wrist compasses were developed for the military without having the capability of telling time. These vintage wrist-compasses with their 1940’s cockpit dial theme inspired us to create the NORTH.er. A timepiece capable of keeping measurements in multiple time-zones while assisting one’s sense of direction.
