Solid stainless steel case with a concave dial, hardened double convex M2 glass, 3 ATM.
Arne Jacobsen also designed the clocks on his buildings: Aarhus City Hall, Rødovre City Hall and Denmark’s National bank.
Using these clocks as inspiration a new series of wall clocks, table clocks and wristwatches was designed in close collaboration with Arne Jacobsens former employee, Teit Weylandt. Arne Jacobsen designed many homes and buildings in the Copenhagen suburb of Rødovre in the 1950s and 1960s.
One of his most detailed projects was Rødovre City Hall from 1956.
Inspired by international trends in this period, Jacobsen designed every last detail himself and decorated the building with his own line of furniture.
