Ackurat shows us the magic of Swedish design


Ah, Sweden! Home to ABBA, at fjord or two, and Ackurat. This company has already released a unique minimalist watch called the M83, a unique piece with a band-in-case design that is reminiscent of the Omega Chronostop.

The 38mm case has a Swiss Ronda movement and comes in five different colors – gold/white, gold/dark grey, silver/steel, silver/light grey and black/white. There is a domed sapphire crystal and the band runs under the backplate, hiding it inside the watch. You can get a leather or metal band.

“The slim size, combined with a high quality Italian leather strap manufactured in Switzerland, or a stainless steel Milanese mesh strap, makes it easy to pair the watch with any outfit, providing a sophisticated look,” said founder Jimmy Andersson.

The watches start at about $140 on Kickstarter and they’re pretty far from their goal – which I suspect our love of Swedish design paired with our love of meatballs can easily remedy.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
