Obaku Watch Review + Giveaway


This week I'm highlighting an amazing watch brand, OBAKU Denmark USA (with local ties to Charlotte) AND hosting an amazing giveaway courtesy of the brand.  When I was first approached by the brand I was ecstatic after checking out their amazing lineup on the web!


I'll be the first to admit that I'm no watch buff, beyond considering it another key item to my accessory collection, however this brand and it's socially conscious efforts of zen (calm and cleanness) adds a great sentimental value.

OBAKU takes its name from a branch of the Japanese Zen philosophy which is characterized by a sense of calm and cleanness, free from all superfluous details. 

The OBAKU logo is inspired by the Zen calligraphic circle of life, also known as the Enso, which in Japanese means ‘circle’. It symbolizes strength, elegance and the universe and is an ‘expression of the moment’. The calligraphic Enso refers to a moment when the mind is free to simply let the body and spirit create.

For my collaboration with Obaku, I was allowed to select a few of my personal favorites, and out of those I was gifted with two amazing pieces + the opportunity to host a GIVEAWAY for one lucky follower!  I selected the white/gold and rose gold pieces below as they go with virtually every style combination I could possibly wear.

REVIEW

I've worn both watches, but will share how and what I wore them with in two additional separate blog posts!  The first thing you will notice when receiving these spectacular pieces is the packaging.  They come in an awesome OBAKU bag and recycled boxing complete with an instruction and warranty manual.
