WBOTD 8/14/12 JS Watch Co. Reykjavik

Post by AJC on 2012-08-14, 05:36

The first and only watch manufacturer in Iceland.

In the year 2005 a group of four ambitious, passionate and enthusiastic watch collectors had a dream come true. Under the guidance of a master watchmaker they unveiled, after years of preparation, their own collection of wristwatches. Working on their ideas for years and when the time was right and the designs perfected they had a go for it. Their goal was to create a timepiece that would withstand the test of time and would be passed on from one generation to the next. In the years that have passed the idea has become reality and more so it has gained international admiration and following. Those four men are the founders of the company JS Watch co. Reykjavik. They are Sigurdur Gilbertsson Technical-Director, Julius Heidarsson Pilot, Grimkell Sigurthsson Design and Marketing Director and Gilbert O. Gudjonsson Master Watchmaker who runs the workshop and store at the headquarters, Laugavegur 62, 101 Reykjavik, Iceland. The collection has made a huge impact on the market in iceland and has made recognition all over the world, especially inside the circle of collectors. The idea of the collection is in a nutshell, design of the past that can find harmony in the present. JS Watch co. Reykjavik is the first and only watch manufacturer in Iceland and is now looking into expanding their markets, introducing their designs to watch enthusiast around the globe. All the watches are designed and assembled by hand in Iceland, and only highest quality Swiss movements and European materials are used to produce them. Every single detail of the watches has been given the time needed for perfection. The quantity of produced watches are limited which gives the watches the personal characteristic and exclusiveness. The uniqueness and personality that comes with each watch produced should be the motivation for owning one. Our Master Watchmaker Gilbert O. Gudjonsson was honored by being nominated Craftsman of the year 2009 in Iceland.

Very well could be, much of iceland uses renewable sources of energy.

They could be built using ass-gas, I'd still want one.
