Obaku Denmark Watch Giveaway+ Pumpkin Colors


Hello Ladies!

I hope your weekend went well. Mine did,  but fast as always!  I was going to write: “pumpkin sweater…”in the title But then I had visions of those Halloween sweaters with pumpkins and ghosts similar to the Christmas sweaters that perhaps grandma has with all of the sewn on trees that light up, or raindeer with a glowing nose. Perhaps your mind turned to coffee, pumpkin spice lattes, things of that nature. Well, I simply meant color.  This pumpkin colored cardigan with a lovely chiffon detail at the neckline was what I chose to wear today to highlight some more fall favorite colors and this beautiful watch that was gifted to me by OBAKU Denmark.  Today I want to talk a bit of philosophy. The philosophy behind the Obaku Denmark.


This particular watch I chose was gifted, and I picked it as I like the smaller watch face, as my wrists are skinny and have always liked a more delicate looking watch . This style, V166LXVNMN  caught my eye, as I love the brown tones, the rosegold metal, and the brown mesh metal band is quite unique and stunningly elegant at the same time. I also love the simplistic or minimalistic design, which is indicative of Obaku’s style and characteristic.








OUTFIT Details: pumpkin cardigan: Loft, jewelry: Charming Charlie, Boots: BORN, skirt: Loft ( years old, cute ), Watch c/o OBAKU Denmark, Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff

As a former educator, I always like to learn or know the history or the root of where names/things are derived  I was interested in learning the meaning of the name “Obaku”. Obaku is a branch of the Zen Philosophy  which believes in calm, a state of being, or mind. So, close your eyes, find a peaceful area in your house, and think of what it means to be calm, have balance, meaning in life. 🙂 Boy, Do I need that!

A bit about the history of “OBaku Watches” #obakudenmark

Today Danish design is known around the world for its emphasis on function, the use of simple lines, the focus on good choice of materials and quality production – with the idea of ‘less is more’ as the main focus point. If you take a stroll through the center of Copenhagen or any other major city in Denmark, you will see the city space is dominated by four to six-story buildings rather than typical glass and steel skyscrapers found in many other cities around the world. Denmark today is being formed around contemporary architecture shooting up everywhere, with the key elements being on light, water, open spaces and sustainability. Read more about the STORY of OBaku Denmark HERE

When I was contacted, I went to the website and was excited to see such gorgeous timepieces. The design with their “clean lines” and minimalistic style is clearly their forte. I was attracted right away to the brown metal styles with a dark brown steel mesh wristband, and rosegold metal design. I loved the simplicity of it, as to be it looked quite elegant and stylish. Living up to my blog’s name! The service could not have been better, as I was contacted by the General Manager who spoke of having more of a presence in Charlotte, NC.  Since I live in Charlotte, and Obaku has 4 stores in the area, I thought it was a great collaboration.

The customer service was very good with my questions being answered quickly through email, and to my surprise, I was given the watches in person, as there was a knock on my door. One of the co-workers drove to my house to deliver the watch! I should forewarn  you all, I will not be able to take a road trip to deliver the winner of the Giveaway their watch :-)( wink)

The designs are lovely and there are many watches to choose from with tastes ranging from watches with color faces ( blue, ever popular burgundy) black, others with gold or silver mesh metal wristbands, and also those with more formal look with  crystals, mother of pearl dials, and square watch faces. There is much variety to please most tastes. Look at the ladies line from OBaku Denmark HERE.

I love the philosophy and idea behind the Obaku brand. Here is what is said.

“OBAKU takes its name from a branch of the Japanese Zen philosophy which is characterized by a sense of calm and cleanness” The clean lines, minimalistic  style, and circle of life are all a part of this, which the company embodies.


The watch that OBAKU DENMARK and I team up to giveaway is a similar style with a slightly larger watch face and more rose gold surrounding it.

Case: Rosegold
Dial: Brown
Strap: Stainless Steel Mesh
Water Resistant: 3 ATM
Size: Ø32 mm
Design by Christian Mikkelsen
