As the big danish designer henning koppel designed in 1978 his first world-famous watch he broke an old watch tradition by replacing numbers into dots. This simple, but obvious difference in the design inspired since then the watch collection of georg jensen which embodies the scandinavian design and simplicity connected with functionality and quality. Along the 38 mm wide dial, elegant black or white points appear there, where common numbers used to be and frame the three precision pointers that count hours, minutes and seconds. The points stand in contrast to optionally white or black dials that also display the date in the lower middle. The dial is protected by sapphire cover-glass. The design of the watch has been changed in the following elements, contrasting the predecessor: the branding “swiss-made” was added below and the georg jensen logo is smaller now. The ancient bracelet out of thick, high-gloss calfskin was replaced by a simpler, matt bracelet according to the bracelet chronograph (model koppel 317). The watch koppel 318 is made of stainless steel with a black calfskin bracelet which is a homage for the in henning koppel’s original design of the year 1978. A noble, technically worked steel watch and an absolute design classic from georg jensen, without a doubt.
