The two-handed Defakto Akkord Modular is a striking, slightly brutalist aesthetics statement offering a very good readability. It comes in two varieties, one with a steel central case and one with bronze, both featuring finely sandblasted, black PVD bezel and crown. The semi-coarse brushing of the 42mm watchcase middle piece gives them a subtle texture - the contrasting materials play off of the stark dial, for a modern and sophisticated look. While the steel model serves a clean industrial look the bronze version develops an unique patina over time. Looking to the Swiss made automatic movement ETA 2824 driven hands the skeletonized hour hand just fits the the index sized minute hand and opens up a nice geometric play as both meet each other. The interplay of the clearly arranged indexes of the dial and the size wise interacting hands sets a contemporary note and leds to a high readability - due to Superluminova coating also in darker surroundings. The tension between the size of the markers and the negative space in between, the rhythm of the forms and their interaction with the unique hands make up the watch´s minimalist character. Continuing the aesthetic of the original Eins series, the strict proportions and clean lines present in the dial and hands aid in an accurate telling of time. Pure and timeless, and perhaps a drop more subtle, the Defakto Akkord is a versatile watch that beckons wearing on a daily basis. The highly balanced, characterfull watch has been awarded with the German Design Award.
