If you are looking for a combination that includes a high quality gadget and a watch, you should probably examine the Welder timepieces. Italy’s company Officine Fontana started working in 1942 on a line of watches that would be easy to read in dim light.
The first collection called U-Boat was launched only in 2000 when the sketches were rediscovered. The collection was soon expanded and the Welder brand came into existence. Welder produces stylish, functional watches, some of them designed especially for people wearing the timepiece on the right hand.
Over sized cases, bold contrasting colors, and unique styles, are what Welder represents. The distinctly placed left position crown that lets the wrist move freely sets Welder apart from all other watches.
Welder watches are inspired by the idea that travelling through space-time would become a reality by the year 2075. While most watch brands project their past into the present, Welder aims to project the future into the present – inspiring its intriguing slogan, ‘Since 2075’.
The Welder name is said to represent the welding of emotions between people, the welding of time and space, the welding of the present to the future, and the link between us and our posterity.
Designer Italo Fontana, who was already famous for his U-Boat brand before he came up with the idea for Welder, has created a collection of watches with an ageless identity and size. The creative designs feature a three-dimensional dial that was inspired by the layers of space and time; a visual representation of the link between the present and the year 2075.
Fontana oversees every tiny detail of Welder watches, viewing them as unique masterpieces. He has a passion for innovation and perfection, ensuring a unique attention to detail at every stage of production. Fontana’s and creativity and open mind towards the future have shaped the Welder brand and its unique philosophy.
