Michael Young was born in 1966 in Sunderland, a small industrial city in the North-East of England. Before the development of Michael Young watches, which you can buy on It's My Wrist, he graduated from Kingston University in 1992 and the following year, he founded the Michael Young Studio with the aim of providing exclusive, quality design services across an eclectic range of markets – from interiors to technology. 

After nearly a decade working across the United Kingdom, Michael was enticed to Asia by his passion for pioneering technology, and in 2006 set up a studio in Hong Kong. Today Michael Young Studio is considered to be one of the most exciting and formidable design companies operating in Asia, responsible for designing award-winning icons for its clients that last a lifetime and are presented in museums globally. 

Over the past 20 years Michael Young has established himself as one of the leading international figures in his field continuing to push the boundaries of experimental design. The studio specializes in creating modern designer watches through exploring the endless possibilities Asia’s technological ingenuity provides. Propelled by the momentum created through collaboration with Chinese industrialists, the studio captures the strengthening ties between local industry and design, and exemplifies the skills of Asia’s industrial innovation. The result is work that transcends design by harnessing some of the highest and most innovative manufacturing skills to create Industrial Art. Michael Young’s vibrant imagination and his continued ability to innovate and take a fresh approach to a seamless blending of East and West is what keeps his work relevant and increasingly in demand across all continents.
Michael Young’s new watch for o.d.m. is inspired by many of the precision engineering projects his studio has been involved with in Hong Kong. The appearance of these designer watches is based on the application of visual ergonomics, using bold lines that lead the eyes pleasantly and allowing the time to be read at a glance. Meanwhile, the metal disc in the center offers strong protection for daily use, so it’s durable yet classical in style. Hacker Watch is designed for running about in a city and for all occasions.
