Autumn 2014 sees the launch of a series of new Koppel wristwatches for men. With their clean-cut elegance and timeless expression, the Koppel watches echo the classic minimalism of Georg Jensen and exemplify the company’s spirit of functional design. A fusion between aesthetics and an active lifestyle, the new designs embrace the original dress watch essence of the Koppel and introduce Georg Jensen’s most advanced complication to date.
A tribute to the original Koppel from 1978, the 38-millimetre Hand-Wound has all the refined simplicity of its precursor, but comes with a number of modern upgrades. The clean watch face features a three-hand dial powered by hand-wound Swiss mechanical movement visible through a transparent case and is available in two strap options: an alligator strap with an ardillon buckle or a stainless steel mesh bracelet with an integrated buckle.
The Koppel 41-millimetre Automatic is Georg Jensen’s take on the advanced wristwatch. A calendar complication with built-in leap years and irregular numbers of days per month resets itself after thirty-one 24-hour cycles, meaning the watch does not require constant time adjustment. The annual calendar displays the day and month and only needs setting once a year, at the end of February. Available in solid 18k gold or stainless steel, it effortlessly marries slick design and optimal functionality.
