A new page — It's Friday the 10th of November and this afternoon we launch our 2018 Collection, Time and Space. Almost a year to the day since we established NTN as a standalone brand, and a culmination of a years work exploring how a range of objects could grow around our original W1/D wristwatch. We couldn't be more relieved / excited / happy / tired / apprehensive about getting to this day and it represents a new page for our micro brand and our small team.

Today we introduce four new objects to the fold: the CAPSULE Clock, INKWELL Pen, HOST Candle and a Special Edition of the W1/D. These objects embody our thoughts on tactility, materiality and the physicality amidst the digital and virtual haze in which we all live. More on that here.

Of course our original range of watches is still central to what we do. They continue to exist unchanged and continue to be hand built by our in-house horologist in our studio on Francis St in the centre of Dublin city.

Thank you — As always there are many many people involved in getting to a collection launch and we want to thank everyone here for their knowledge, opinions and support along the way: Nuala O'Shea, Workgroup, Fiona Snow, Walter DeLacy, Andrew Burdock, Declan Scullion, Grown, Dave O'Carroll, Niall Whitelaw, Stephen Walton, Glenn Burrowes, Laura Caulwell, Tim Hardy, Kok-Yee Yau, Jamie Griffin & family Walton. Also we should thank our very lovely stockists for their patience while we got entirely distracted by new products: Laura & Clare at the Irish Design Shop, Dan at Coffeewerk & Press, Gar & Andy at Indigo & Cloth and the team at SCP London.

Shipping dates — Today is our online launch of the collection. The objects themselves are available to order and pre-order in some cases. The W1/D Special Edition, CAPSULE Wall Clock and HOST Candle will begin shipping on the week beginning November 20th. The original W1/D range is currently available for shipping as normal. The INKWELL pen will become available at the start of 2018.

That's everything for now. As ever we can always be reached on info@ntn.ie with feedback, press enquiries or general questions.

Have a great weekend,


Ian WaltonComment
