Iceland based mechanical watch brand JS Watch co. Reykjavík presents a hand engraved special edition timepiece from their Frisland God watch. This new model pays tribute to the artistry and skill of Icelandic carvers in past times.
The JS Watch co. Frisland God watch was in 2011 in connection to the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. The new hand-engraved version is basically the Frisland God which displays a splendid face, made of ash from the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption, in a 42 mm diameter steel case with hand-engraved ancient-style motif.
On the side of the watch one can see the word ÍSLAND (ICELAND) written in “Höfðaletur” (Head Letters) which is an unusual Icelandic font mainly used to adorn items made of wood, horn and, later on, metals.
“Höfðaletur” brings with it real elegance as well as mystery. In earlier times this type of letters was rather hard to read and for that reason chosen to keep secrets. Items adorned with “Höfðaletur” were those people cherished.
The JS Watch co. Frisland God Hand Engraved Special Edition is only available by custom order and it will be possible for those interested to have the original “Höfðaletur”-text changed Into something personal like the name of the buyer for instance.
