Successful Businessman Gordon Bethune once said “Watches are the only jewellery men can wear, unless you’re Mr. T.” There is something elegant and understated about a wristwatch, the right one can exude class and sophistication while completing the ensemble that is your outward appearance. While the modern world may be obsessed with things on their wrist that track their heart rate and push notifications all day long, one company Hygee, wants to remind people that there is beauty in simplicity. In fact, in Danish culture, the word hygee means contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life and this philosophy could not be truer than with their Vari watch.
The design team behind the Vari believe in clarity, quality and creativity as they strive to reinvent everyday design. Their fundamental principle of good design starts with positivity drives every watch they create and in fact, in the desire to meet the needs of every customer, each stage of the production of a Hygee watch is closely controlled by engineers to assure the necessary standards of craftsmanship, quality and reliability.
With 8 different design styles to choose from, the Vari, in our books, manages to strike the perfect balance between form and function as its unique Scandinavian design is complemented by premium Japanese craftmanship. In fact, the Vari was a Reddot Award Winner for design just a few years ago.
The Vari is the most playful of all Hygee’s designs and comes in a range of striking colored watch faces and bands. With its unique square design, the watch is quite attractive and is a perfect example of minimalist jewellery. Weighing just 25g, the case itself is made from aluminium and features a geometric curved mineral glass that just bleeds seamlessly into the frame. This is complimented by a premium leather watch strap and comes complete with 3ATM water resistance.
After wearing the Vari exclusively this past month, there is a lot to like about this watch. We received many compliments on the design motif as it is unusual to see a squared watch face unless you own an Apple watch. The watch and band are also extremely comfortable and lightweight and the watch pairs well with more formal attire. We do wish the watch face was a little larger and is on the small side, but we absolutely love its minimalist design and it is refreshing that it JUST tells the time and nothing else. Maybe there is something to this ‘simpler’ life?
To sum up, the Hygee Vari is a great option for anyone that wants a classy and elegant timepiece that is perfect for the office and those nights out with friends and with so many color options to choose from, you can get one to suit every mood!
