These minimalist luxury watches are brought to you by the modern-minded industrial designers at San Francisco-based Elliot Havok. This line of watches includes four offerings, each of which offers a different take on the overall minimalist yet classy design theme.

The designers' goal was to take an unabashed 'less is more' approach and apply it to a watch that was thoughtfully constructed but didn't require wearers to break the bank. This is a watch that is more than merely functional -- it is sure to grab the eye of onlookers -- yet starts at a paltry $69 on Kickstarter.

My personal favorite is the Oxford Premium, an ultra-versatile dress watch with silver accents and a plaid backside designed to look equally at home in the board room, commuter train and golf course. However depending on your personal taste, you may be more enticed by the herringbone-pattern trimmed all-black Midnight Premium, the self-explanatory Black Classic and the white-face Brown Classic, which comes with a pleasing brown leather strap.

Havok luxury watches are currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign that looks well on course to meet its fundraising target. However, you still have nearly two months to get your pledges in. $69 will land you a Black or Brown Classic watch, while $89 gets you any Havok watch of your choice along with a wallet.
