BrandPhilosophy

Look different.Be different

Classic watches don’t really work for us. We gravitate towards horological marvels crafted by Debethune, MB&F, and HYT, while our wardrobe is a blend of Demobaza, Y-3, and A Cold Wall, and we immerse ourselves in the cinematic worlds of Back to the Future, Blade Runner, and Tron.

We thrive on experimentation and embrace the Retro-Futurism, Cyberpunk & Post-Apocalyptic aesthetics. The Nixie watch by Gelfman reflects our brand’s ethos, a harmonious fusion of unparalleled design and innovative technology. Are you with us?
