Jacob Jensen watches are already regarded as modern classics. In the summer of 2006, the renowned Danish design team received the Red Dot Design Award for their Chronograph, and in 2007 they were nominated for the "Designpreis der BRD".
Jacob Jensen presents the new 800s models in the design of the popular titanium line from nickel-free stainless steel as men’s and women’s watch. Besides a larger shell, they also have a stepped and therefore 3-dimensional dial.
“There is a bigger demand for watches that are more voluminous than the ones currently on the market” says the 44-year old head designer Timothy Jacob Jensen. “We want to meet this demand without compromising our own known classic shapes”.
The challenge was to design a watch with a greater weight, while at the same time providing the traditional elegance of a Jacob Jensen watch.
The new 800s watches don't only stand out because of their size: The simple design with the simply structured index abides by the typical Jacob Jensen design. The three-dimensional dial with a calendar display at 12 o'clock is a distinctive feature of the 800 series, particularly characterised by its clear contours. A further novelty of the 800 series are the high-quality, simple leather bracelets, which are inserted into the case in an elegant, seamless manner. Of course, all models of the 800 series can also be equipped with the classic Jacob Jensen rubber bracelet.
All of the features correspond to the usual high standard of the Jacob Jensen watches: solid nickel-free stainless steel case, glass made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a high quality SWISS ETA movement.
"I would say that the watches of the 800 series are great in many respects," says Timothy Jacob Jensen. "It is not just the formal language that helps make it the elegant model of a great distinctive watch."
The combination of functionality and material will give the owner much pleasure now and in the future.
