Minimalism is something that we definitely look for in our accessories here at The Coolector and this is especially the case when it comes to timepieces. It is for this reason, then, that you won’t be surprised to hear we’ve got a pretty big soft spot for the understated and elegant selection of watches from British watchmakers, TAPFERKEIT. This excellent micro brand takes their design inspiration from the minimalist, Bauhaus designs of Germany. The brand began when the founder, James, realised that Bauhaus watches were extremely high priced and wanted to disrupt the marketplace, offering high quality, Bauhaus watches for a tenth of the price. Something we can definitely get on board with.
The sophistication aesthetics of these TAPFERKEIT Watches definitely resonates with our style sensibilities here at Coolector HQ and if you’re in the market for a stylish, dapper and, above all, affordable timepiece for your wrist in 2022, they are definitely a brand that need to be on your radar. The team at TAPFERKEIT have ensured that all of their excellent looking watches are created using top quality and pure materials while also being assembled with precision and a real attention to detail. As they are bringing a new watch into the legacy, only perfection will be empowered and welcomed here. Your wrist will thank you for investing in one of these devilishly dapper timepieces.

If you’re the sort that wants your watch to do the talking without any need for any ostentatious bells and whistles, TAPFERKEIT Watches are going to be ideal for you. They allow their quality to shine through and don’t rely on any aesthetic gimmicks. One of their stand out releases to date is the supremely stylish Freiheit Watch which currently has 9 combinations to choose from. The white, black and beige dials can be accompanied by either a black, brown or mesh strap to keep things fresh. Keeping their combinations simple and limited allows TAPFERKEIT to really focus on the pure beauty and essence of the design. And it shows.
The fantastic looking timepieces from TAPFERKEIT start at a wonderfully wallet friendly price of just £89 and when you look at the lofty price tag of some of the other watches in the Bauhaus movement or those with similar specifications, this just goes to show what great value for money these ones are because, not only do they look great, they’ve got some quality components within to boot. The hands are made from solid aluminium with built-in luminous sections and the dial also has four luminous points at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 marks to establish a glow within low light conditions. The case of TAPFERKEIT Watches are built using 316L surgical grade steel with an open back and has 50 metres of water depth protection.
For their automatic timepieces (where prices start at £179), TAPFERKEIT have opted to use a classic Miyota 8215 movement due to its traditional, reliable performance and popular reputation within the watchmaking industry. Powered by 21 jewels it has a 42-hour power reserve and it’s not often you see a timepiece with this calibre of movement at this price point so it’s not hard to see why minimalism fans are snapping up these great looking watches in their droves. If you’re wanting to add a touch of class to your wrist in 2022 but want to do so without breaking the bank, a TAPFERKEIT timepiece is for you.
