Review – Von Doren Aksla
Von Doren is a Norwegian watch company founded by Von Doren Asbjornsen. It began on Kickstarter on December 14, 2016, and as a new company they have really taken off. Four watches are offered under the model name Aksla, named after Mt. Aksla, which overlooks the town of Aalesund.
VON DOREN WATCHES
Scandinavia has become a veritable hotbed of awesomeness so far as timepieces are concerned and so it has proven once again with Von Doren Watches, a Norwegian watchmaker that takes its influences and design inspiration from Viking culture to deliver a series of timepieces which are as bold and striking as they are well made and stylish.
Von Doren says…checkmate..
One of the beautiful things about the game of chess is that when a player reaches a certain level of sophistication, the moves, the pieces and the strategy have a transcendent quality. Meaning, that the game itself can be applied to life itself. A true chess player begins to take the angles, the maneuvers and the tactics of the game, and lays them against the backdrop of the world around them.
VON DOREN GRANDMASTER WATCH
Chess is a game of precision and timing and the same is true of high end watches so it makes sense for a timepiece to be inspired by the legendary game that is a battle of wits. What you might not have expected, however, is for the finished product to be quite as dazzling and luxurious as the stunning Grand Master Watch from Norwegian watchmakers, Von Doren. If you love horology and chess, this is the watch for you.
The Vikings are coming – and damn those Watches look good – Von Doren
As time progresses you will learn that I love all watches, mechanical, automatic, or quartz. Subs to dress, modern to classic, I am always looking, looking for something to catch my eye, something that is worth my time to put on the site because it qualifies to be remembered as a moment in time.
Von Doren has vintage style I can dig
Over the past year or so, we have seen a lot of “me too” sort of watch designs hitting Kickstarter, and it has started to get old. I mean, how many thin, minimalistic, two-handed watches can we really handle? Well, of those clone designs, I say no more. When it comes to something like what we’re seeing from Von Doren, though? That I definitely do not mind seeing.
Von Doren Fine Timepieces
Øyvind VonDoren Asbjørnsen realiserer drømmen om eget klokkemerke.
I det 2016 nærmer seg slutten, har et nytt norsk klokkemerke nylig blitt lansert. Bak merket står den norske filmskaperen Øyvind VonDoren Asbjørnsen. Enkelte vil kanskje dra kjensel på Asbjørnsen fra hans arbeid, kanskje spesielt med dokumentarene «Prinsen av sjakk» og «Magnus», om sjakkgeniet Magnus Carlsen.
Jotunheim Lady, la montre féminine élégante
