Holistic approach

Cate & Nelson Watches are unisex, inspired by the iconic clock in the Stockholm metro system. In a similar fashion.

Our watches reflects the sobriety and honesty of Scandinavian design, with nothing else but the most important details needed to be a fully functional tool

Our products bring together the finest materials and stunning design to create something very special. We believe in quality, care, and creating unique products that everyone can enjoy. Minimalism, creative, and inspired by what we see everyday, each product represents what we love about the world we live in. 

As a studio that normally designs furniture and larger interior decor pieces, Cate & Nelson has a clear design language that is Scandinavian in style – but always with an international approach.


Timeless design

“We consider a watch as a powerful tool that not only tells time but also communicates a personal sense of style and living. A watch makes a statement of who you are and what is important to you.

Our watches are created to be worn by people who love craftsmanship and design, and for whom ease of use is a requirement".

Design oriented

“We gather inspiration from Cate’s Scandinavian background and also from my southern European heritage. When we created the timepiece, we wanted to take away the classic watch elements and create a new design language for the watch. 

For instance, we chose to remove numbers from the dial, stamping out markings for time instead, giving the timepiece a cleaner look and feel. We gave the second hand an accent colour and placed the watch crown in a more functional and user-friendly position.”
