Introducing the Johan Eric Viborg Watch Collection

Viborg Cathedral, Viborg Denmark


by John Sealander  

One of the Oldest Cities in Denmark Provides
the Inspiration for This New Johan Eric Design

Johan Eric WatchesThe city of Viborg, located in the center of Denmark, is one of the oldest municipalities in the country, tracing its roots all the way back to 8th Century Viking settlements. The city’s central location gave it great strategic importance during the Middle Ages, and it subsequently became home to the famous Viborg Cathedral, which has been a familiar site in the city since construction commenced in 1130 AD.

Johan Eric Viborg CollectionIt should come as no surprise that this historic and enduring city provided the inspiration for one of the most timeless and classic styles Johan Eric has produced yet. The handsome Johan Eric Viborg Collection has a distinctly retro look that is reminiscent of some of the most enduring watches from the 60‘s and 70’s. The minimal three-hand configuration, with raised baton indices and a date window at 3 o’clock exhibits the clean, slim lines of a modern masterpiece.

The Viborg is available in stainless steel, rose gold, and IP black, with a choice of black or silver sunray dials. Each of these timepieces has been fitted with a beautiful, brown or black straight-cut natural leather strap. The watch is powered by a precision Miyota GM10 quartz movement and is water resistant to 100 feet. To complete the distinctive design, the Viborg features a durable mineral glass crystal along with a stainless steel case back that has been engraved with the Coat of Arms of Copenhagen.

Johan Eric Viborg CollectionThis retro-inspired design is equally appropriate for both casual and dressy occasions. Like all Johan Eric watches, the new Viborg has taken the best traditions of Danish Modern design and updated them for the 21st Century. This is a watch for someone who both respects and past and looks forward to the future. If you’d like to secure one of these classic creations for yourself, contact an authorized Johan Eric dealer today and ask to see the Viborg Collection.

Orstead watches feature a unique skeletonized dial with multiple, precisely cut holes that partially reveal the quartz movement below.

The perforated, brushed aluminum sunray dial is surrounded by eleven sparkling Swarovski crystals that serve as indices.

Johan Eric Orstead timepieces are available in stainless steel, IP rose gold, white with sapphire blue indices, and IP black. A beautiful, matching satin band is fitted to each watch for a unified, coordinated look. Like all Johan Eric watches, the Orstead is water resistant to 99 feet and powered by a precision quartz movement.

Johan Eric – Copenhagen Coat of Arms Caseback


by John Sealander  

When King Frederick III of Denmark granted the Coat of Arms of
Copenhagen in 1661, he also granted the citizens of Copenhagen the same rights to own property as the Danish nobility.

They seem to have liked watches ever since.

Johan Eric WatchesCopenhagen Coat of ArmsThe historic Copenhagen Coat of Arms has long been a symbol of Denmark’s remarkable freedom of expression and creative spirit. As a founding member of the United Nations and the country ranked as having the world’s highest level of income equality, Denmark is considered by some to be the happiest country on earth.

What makes the citizens of Denmark so happy? There are many reasons, but the citizens of this small country have certainly developed an appreciation for the finer things. Danish designers like Jacob Jensen and Arne Jacobsen have become world famous for designs that focused on the user; while maintaining a respect for natural materials, and showing a remarkable attention to detail.
