Though Johan Eric is a relatively new player in the watch game, the Dane, who lives in Randers on Denmark’s Jutland Peninsula, has designed a winner with the Randers Stainless Steel Sunray Dial.
Johan Eric says the inspiration for the watch came from the peninsula, which is the reason for the model’s name. However, the design of the watch also reveals Johan Eric’s origins. Influenced by the German Bauhaus movement, Danish design was developed in the mid-20th century and is known for its simplicity and functionality. Prominent artists include Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner and the style is seen in the Sydney Opera House and the Egg chair.
The Randers Stainless Steel Silver Sunray Dial reflects this simple yet elegant aesthetic. Your eye immediately travels to the floating off-center sub-seconds in an arc located between 8 and 12 o’clock, unusual for its positioning. But there is another detail that makes it stand out. Most running seconds show marks for each second. In this case, Johan Eric chose to demarcate five-second intervals for the first 30 seconds. The beautiful silver sunray pattern provides a nice contrasting backdrop for the black hour indices and Johan Eric logo, also placed in an untraditional location at 3 o’clock, yet this placement adds balance and contributes to the overall look.
In a 42 mm stainless steel case, the Randers Stainless Steel Silver Sunray Dial watch continues the theme of surprises with the crown between the 7 and 8 o’clock positions. It comes on a leather strap with a crocodile pattern and closes with a buckle clasp.
