The PXR digital wristwatches by Hong Kong based British designer Michael Young, are amongst the most stylish digital watches I came across, and they also come at a surprisingly affordable price.
It all started with the utterly minimalist PXR-5. Following the initial success of the PXR-5 its replacement the PXR-6 was introduced (shown in the center of the picture). The phenomenally successful PXR-6 looks identical to the PXR-5 however it brings significant improvements. The PXR-6 has improved water resistance, improved durability, new mechanism improved blue night light and a stylish new presentation case. Finally the latest additions to Michael Young’s stunning range of wristwatches, are the PXR-7 and PXR-8 displayed to the left and right of the picture respectively.
The PXR series of watches is characterized by modern minimalist design, but personally I love the slightly retro feel of the design, a subtle reference to the angular digital clocks in the 1980s, which I wore as a kid.
The Michael Young PXR digital watches are made from stainless steel and are available with equally nice matt and brushed finishes, their machined cases are distinguished by soft curves and a unique rectilinear form. They are water resistant at 50 meter / 5 atmospheres, and are available with a selection easily interchangeable bracelets, made from synthetic, rubber or leather, depending on the model and options. Each watch is individually numbered and engraved with Young’s signature.
