Tayroc Minimal Watches

Tayroc Minimal Watches

It may sound oxymoronic, but simple design is difficult to do. To really nail a minimal, contemporary vibe, you need a keen eye for style. For an example of it done right, check out the watches from Tayroc. The brand crafts timepieces devoid of flashy and unnecessary accoutrements.
