Grand design in a small package
As with the wall clocks, the dial and the front part of the case are produced as a single piece. Accordingly, the time graduations are imprinted directly on the dial. The wrist watches also have the same concave shape as the wall clocks. Similarly, the watch movement is located at the rear, and this part not only serves to retain the movement but also partly to retain the strap. The black, waxed calf leather strap is held in place using a system specially developed by Rosendahl Timepieces for the collection.
Arne Jacobsen (11 Feb. 1902 – 24 March 1971) is one of the most influential Danish architects and designers of the 20th century. The Arne Jacobsen wrist watches are not only an elegant re-interpretation of Danish design history, they are also the herald of a brand-new generation of Arne Jacobsen’s designs.
