The Inspiration from the Nordic Sea

The ØSTERSØEN collection draws its inspiration from the serene waters of the Nordic sea. Founder Mick Jelsdal Jørgensen's cherished memories of fishing and swimming in the waters of Copenhagen with his family kindled the creative spark that set this horological masterpiece into motion. The vision was clear: to encapsulate the calm, serenity, and timelessness of the Nordic region into a timepiece that represents a legacy of exquisite craftsmanship.

Meticulous Design and Planning

Every great creation begins with a vision, and ØSTERSØEN was no different. Our team of skilled designers worked tirelessly to meticulously craft a unique wave pattern that resonates with the ebb and flow of the Nordic sea. The dial is the heart of any watch, and for ØSTERSØEN, it had to be perfect - a reflection of the Nordic spirit, minimalist yet captivating.

The Art of Enamel-like Shine

One of the most captivating aspects of the ØSTERSØEN dial is the subtle shine reminiscent of enamel, giving it an air of elegance and sophistication. Achieving this level of refinement required a delicate and intricate process.
