In solidarity with the Ukrainian people we do not accept orders from Russia.

CONTAR is an independent portuguese brand and we produce reliable, tough and affordable field watches.

The MK I is our first model. It is inspired by British World War II Army Trade Pattern watches and the so-called Dirty Dozen  and also by the later Mark XI aviation watch.

Why look for inspiration in these classics, you may ask? Well, in addition to the connection to the past and the stories of many men and women, who used them in extreme conditions, in the end it all comes down to a simple, highly legible layout, in which design serves the primary function of telling time. What can we ask more of a watch?

But CONTAR is not just about watches. We want to establish a close and honest relationship with our clients. We believe we can do it.

Be safe!
