Von Doren


By taking a number of subtle style cues from chess, The Grandmaster Mark II pays tribute to the game that has captivated legions of followers for well over a millennium.  The dial is steel white with a hint of shimmer, and the outer edge is decorated with a refined guilloché pattern as well as raised indexes in silver. Contrasted by cobalt blue lancet-shaped hands, the Grandmaster Mark II provides unbeatable readability. The Swiss Made STP 1-11 movement is visible through the caseback and is protected by a case of polished stainless steel and a double domed sapphire crystal.  Delivered on an Italian handmade brown leather strap. Limited to 300 pieces.

Øyvind Von Doren Asbjørnsen was a film director & producer before he founded Von Doren. After making two films about Magnus Carlsen, namely The Prince of Chess (2005) and MAGNUS (2016), the effort and strength required of a chess player to achieve the title Grandmaster was a natural inspiration.
