Fyrkat, Viking Ring Castle, Hobro Denmark

Ancient Viking Ring Castle Provides Inspiration for a Modern Classic

Johan Eric WatchesHobro, Denmark is the site of Fyrkat, one of the country’s oldest Viking Ring Castles. These unique forts, which date back to 11th century, were designed in the shape of a giant circle, bisected by two roads that cross at right angles in the exact center of the fort. From the air, the ruins of these ancient fortifications look a lot like a giant watch dial.

Inspired by the symmetrical simplicity of the town’s historic Viking castle, Johan Eric created the Hobro Collection. The Hobro is a beautifully simple timepiece that pays homage to Denmark’s ancient Viking heritage, as well as its modern design traditions.
