* The Defakto Meta was released to celebrate Defakto´s 10-year anniversary. This new, single-hand piece is a super minimal watch that attempts to slow the pace of our busy day. The Defakto Meta follows in a similar design ethos to the German Design Award 2020 Winner - Defakto Transit - and due to its wide, rounded single-hand, the watch´s concept focuses on an even more intuitive time resolution.


* As the indexes represent only the hour and quarter-hour periods, the minimalistic single-hand time is read in approximate intervals rather than specific seconds. The large single hand is used to read both the hour and approximate minute at the same time whilst both hand and indices are coated in super-luminova making the watch visible at night.

Defakto is an independent, design-led watch brand founded in 2009. Watches are produced within its own manufactory and offers high quality German made watches, offering an excellent price-performance ratio hard to find elsewhere.

Aiming to find the perfect symbiosis between form and function, Defakto watches recall the teachings of the Bauhaus design ethos while maintaining a strong contemporary aesthetic, resulting in a timeless, modern classic. 

Within their premises in Berlin, everything from concept to design, communications, assembly and logistics is carried out by the owner personally – Raphael Ickler. Defakto watch cases are manufactured by the family-owned manufactory - Ickler GmbH in Pforzheim, Germany, who have been creating precision timepieces since 1924. 

Simple geometries and precise proportions make certain that every Defakto watch will have a timeless appeal that owners will appreciate just as much today as in the future.
