TYP-01 | Ergonomics
Founder, R Werk
Nelson’s love of watches began when he was only a toddler and needed to hold a watch with a metal bracelet in order to fall asleep. Since then, he’s completed an electrical and computer engineering degree at the University of Toronto and founded multiple notable companies, such as Drop (formerly Massdrop) and Apos Audio, where he’s had a hand in designing and developing more than 50 consumer enthusiast products that have sold over a million units. While he’s loved cars nearly as long as watches, it was while living in San Francisco that he fell in love with Porsche, particularly the 911. R Werk is his first company that focuses on his love of all things automobiles and timepieces.
FROM PROTOTYPE TO PERFECTION
The TYP-01 isn’t only designed to look beautiful but to perform functionally as furniture. After more than a year of researching, prototyping, and usability testing, every dimension is instinctively simple to use.
The Alcantara® watchrest surface is grippy enough to hold your watch safe yet gentle enough to never induce wear and tear.
The positioning of the watchrest makes placing and removing your timepiece intuitive and effortless.
The shape of the watchrest is designed to accommodate watches of many different shapes and sizes.
At 1.7 kilograms (3.8 pounds), the TYP-01 has the sturdiness to stay rooted as you use it.
The base, finished in soft yet grippy Alcantara®, holds the TYP-01 in place while retaining the integrity of your surfaces.
Expertly calibrated dimensions place the center of gravity in the bottom middle of the sculpture, ensuring balance and stability.

To achieve the sculpture with the materials we envisioned, we had to search beyond traditional manufacturing for advanced methods often reserved for the aerospace industry and the highest-performing racing teams. Every facet, down the hidden titanium screws, are bespoke, designed and commissioned by R Werk.
