It’s TIME to shine with Kind...
This June was an extremely busy but exciting month for us. As a sponsor for Norway Chess 2017, Von Doren - Fine Timepieces has launched an ultra-limited Swiss-made Grandmaster Automatic Collection (only 25 pieces were made), with unique design and premium quality. Each of the world's ten greatest Chess Players was awarded the Von Doren Grandmaster.
Grandmaster Anand and World Champion Magnus Carlsen
"Each timepiece has a circular-brushed brass dial with its own unique pattern and patina. No two finishes are alike, lending an extra air of exclusivity to this already highly limited-edition wristwatch.”
We are so proud to showcase the beauty of this watch with the world’s leading chess players and our beloved customers. More importantly, we would like to thank Kind, our official design partner, for their collaboration in product design.
CEO, Creative Director and Founder of Kind, Tom Emil Olsen, said from the company's global headquarters in Bergen, Norway: "We are delighted to be working with the Von Doren brand, with their impressive range of wristwatches. The company takes great pride in its Norwegian heritage, while also combining these influences in top-quality Swiss movements. Fine watchmaking has many parallels with great branding and design: no detail can be considered as being too small. Knowledge, expertise and patience combine to create something truly special. This is just one reason why we believe our collaboration with Von Doren moving forward will reap some extraordinary-yet-timeless results."
Our founder, Øyvind VonDoren Asbjørnsen, was very satisfied with this strategic partnership and he even said that "designers in Kind Norway are among the world’s best designers”. “Von Doren watches reflects the very best of Scandinavian quality and standards”. Therefore, we at Von Doren believe that Kind Norway with their top-notch design skills can help us realize our brand promise and ambition in the competitive watch industry.
