Our watch straps are made out of salmon leather from the Faroe Islands. There they slay the fish before it gets shipped to the vikings of Iceland, in a ship filled with 40 well-built men. The vikings study the leather to make sure it is of the finest quality before they start the tanning process.
First they clean the leather before it gets washed. Then it gets tanned by hand and dried. The process takes three days and once done the entire town gathers to celebrate the making of this unique and luxurious leather to perfection. A beautiful blonde shield maiden lays down the precious goods in the mothership. It is protected by 20 other viking ships on its journey to the mongols of China.
Once it reaches the mongols of China it is carefully being hand-cut and sewn into the fine watch strap that you see in the picture. After all the skin has been turned into watch straps it is delivered to their leader Djengis Khan, who inspects the straps one by one. If it gets his approval, then it is delivered to all corners of the world by his personal courier Marco Polo.
Very happy. I bought the watch for my godsons graduation and he loves it! It looks wonderful and the story behind the origin of the company and watches impressed us equally.
I loved the Berg watches immediately when I saw them online while looking for simplistic designs. My Ulriken Blue is even more beautiful than I thought it would be. I am an avid collector of watches and I will proudly wear this with other watches that are 20 times more expensive.
Beautiful watch and perfect size for women! Communication with Berg Watches is more than perfect, they answered within half an hour.
Love the brown strap I picked but also the red one I received as an extra gift. Thanks!
Et flott ur!
Fikk klokken etter 2 dager og er veldig fornøyd. Ter seg godt i samlingen, men venter fortsatt på at det skal komme en automatisk versjon..!
Pent ur, perfelt til alle anledninger, flott å kunne vise fram Bergensk design!
