About Us


Founded in 2017, Akura Timepieces is based in Dundee, Scotland. Together with watch enthusiasts we have created the Wayfarer, a mountaineering inspired toolwatch, designed for perfection in every detail.

We are launching on Kickstarter on the 31st of July 2019 and look forward to bringing a standout timepiece to your wrist – combining precision, performance and longevity. Made to persist.



The amazing input from enthusiasts turned the Wayfarer into what it is today. It has been designed with you in mind:

Your attention quickly shifts towards competitive specifications, but your eye is trained far beyond that. You see the intangible whole that truly creates something unique, something of value, something that lasts beyond trends. 

You know what “appreciating the finer things in life” means. It’s not the price tag that’s deciding – it’s that certain something that others overlook. The inherent quality of things that make them stand out and rise above.

That’s why you’re reading this, right here, right now. You’ve chosen to give the Wayfarer your attention because you see it here – a watch that is worth far more than the sum of its parts.

We’re just telling you what you already know.

Thank you for your support.
