* The Defakto Transit was created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Defakto Watch Manufactory. The watch is the most complex manufacture created by Defakto yet. It offers unique, modern aesthetics combined with high quality components such as a new in-house made 3-piece watch case with brushed finishing, a convex sapphire crystal and a Swiss made automatic movement. In the design process great importance was placed on night readability. The curved hands, as well as the indices of the black matte dial have been coated with Superluminova and the newly developed 40mm stainless steel case (316L) has a height of just 9.8mm including the domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The durable automatic Swiss movement (ETA 2824-2) conveys the time with high accuracy.


The Defakto Transit has just won the internationally renowned German Design Award 2020 in the category - Winner Product Design Luxury Goods.

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.
