Each watch is a scaled-down replica of the original design, re-created by Rosendahl Watches according to Jacobsen’s design principles.

Jacobsen designed the original Station clock for electrical goods manufacturer Lauritz Knudsen in 1939. The watch version (main image) includes a distinctive minimal face with easy-to-read numbers and a circular motif that echoes the shape of the dial.

The elegant Roman watch pays homage to Aarhus City Hall clock, which Jacobsen designed in 1942, and features a round dial with distinctive Roman numeral indexes and a black waxed leather strap.

The strap is clamped between the watch case and a circular disk on the back. Rather than featuring a crown, the time is adjusted by pushing a pointed object into a dimple on the reverse.

Arne Jacobsen was one of the most influential Danish architects and designers of the twentieth century. His building and product designs – including the Egg and Swan chair – combine modernist ideals with a Nordic appreciation for naturalism.
