Arne Jacobsen - Banker’s 40mm Wrist Watch
Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1970 for the National Bank in Copenhagen.
Grand design in a small package as with the wall clocks, the dial and the front part of the case are produced as a single piece. Accordingly, the time graduations are imprinted directly on the dial. The wrist watches also have the same concave shape as the wall clocks. Similarly, the watch movement is located at the rear, and this part not only serves to retain the movement but also partly to retain the strap. The black, waxed calf leather strap is held in place using a system specially developed by Rosendahl for the collection.
The Arne Jacobsen wrist watches are not only an elegant re-interpretation of Danish design history, they are also the herald of a brand new generation of Arne Jacobsen’s ideas, alongside ‘The Egg’, ‘The Swan’, ‘The Ant’, ‘The Series 7’ and all the other design icons from the hand of the master.
