Omtale av Von Doren URÆD
I denne klokkeomtalen har vi skrevet om det norske klokkemerket Von Doren, og deres nye dykkerklokke URÆD.

Von Doren URÆD - Inspired by a Norwegian hero
Since we met the awesome team of Von Doren watches at the Aurochronos watch festival 2019 in Lodz, Poland, we were excited to see their new automatic sports watches line. Finally, after one and a half years designing, Von Doren has launched its new automatic collection “URÆD”.....
VON DOREN URÆD AUTOMATIC WATCH
Kickstarter is a springboard for some of our favourite timepieces here at Coolector HQ and there’s certainly another fine example of this in the shape of the Von Doren URÆD Automatic Watch which is well and truly taking the crowdfunding platform by storm and is rapidly closing in on £500k in funding which testifies to just how attractive and impressive this timepiece is.
THE URÆD WRISTWATCH PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE CREATOR OF THE WORLD’S FIRST CLOSED LIFEBOAT
If you haven’t heard of the story of Mr. Ole Brude, sit down and grab a cup of hot chocolate, because it’s pretty incredible. Back in August 1904, a Norwegian by the name of Ole Brude designed a lifeboat no larger than the size of a minivan.

VON DOREN GRANDMASTER WATCH
Chess is a game of precision and timing and the same is true of high end watches so it makes sense for a timepiece to be inspired by the legendary game that is a battle of wits. What you might not have expected, however, is for the finished product to be quite as dazzling and luxurious as the stunning Grand Master Watch from Norwegian watchmakers, Von Doren. If you love horology and chess, this is the watch for you.
The Vikings are coming – and damn those Watches look good – Von Doren
As time progresses you will learn that I love all watches, mechanical, automatic, or quartz. Subs to dress, modern to classic, I am always looking, looking for something to catch my eye, something that is worth my time to put on the site because it qualifies to be remembered as a moment in time.
VON DOREN WATCHES
Scandinavia has become a veritable hotbed of awesomeness so far as timepieces are concerned and so it has proven once again with Von Doren Watches, a Norwegian watchmaker that takes its influences and design inspiration from Viking culture to deliver a series of timepieces which are as bold and striking as they are well made and stylish.
Review – Von Doren Aksla
Von Doren is a Norwegian watch company founded by Von Doren Asbjornsen. It began on Kickstarter on December 14, 2016, and as a new company they have really taken off. Four watches are offered under the model name Aksla, named after Mt. Aksla, which overlooks the town of Aalesund.
Med sin bakgrunn som filmskaper er det kanskje ikke overraskende at mannen bak merket Von Doren - Øyvind Vondoren Asbjørnsen - også formidler historier gjennom sine klokkelanseringer. Den helt nye «Treasuremaster» er intet unntak.
Ytterst i havgapet, utenfor Ålesund, ligger øya Runde. Kjent for sitt yrende fugleliv og sin ville og vakre natur, men også for tilnavnet Skattøya, etter at tre dykkere i 1972 fant det forliste hollandske skipet «Akerendam» og 57.000 sølv- og gullmynter.
Øyvind VonDoren Asbjørnsens Sjakktrekk
Til tross for mange norske klokkemerker finner du de færreste hos norske urmakerforretninger.
Forlegger og filmskaper Øyvind Von Doren Asbjørnsen omgikk i 2017 den utfordringen ved å åpne egen butikk – allerede året etter at han startet sitt eget klokkemerke: Von Doren.
Von Doren URÆD
One thing ties my eclectic collection of divers, dress watches, and pilot’s watches together: a story. And the Uræd has quite the yarn.
To prove that his enclosed lifeboat prototype was a safer alternative to the prevailing designs of the day Norseman Ole Brude and a few bold crewmates left Norway...
Introducing: Von Doren URÆD
You’ve probably never heard of Ålesund. Don’t worry, there’s not a huge amount to know. It’s not the largest, most populous or most important town in Norway. It’s pretty enough but not exactly Portofino. However, it does have two things going for it, the first being an intriguing place in nautical history thanks to Norwegian sailor Ole Brude.......
Omtale av Von Doren Grandmaster Mark II
I denne omtalen tar vi for oss to klokkemodeller fra kolleksjonen Grandmaster Mark II fra Von Doren.
Navnet Grandmaster stammer fra tittelen Stormester i sjakk som sjakkspillere kan tildeles av Verdenssjakkforbundet (FIDE), etter klart definerte kriterier.
Øyvind Von Doren:
The Man Behind The Norway Chess Watch
If you have been following the Norway Chess Tournament, it will have been hard to miss the beautiful Norway Chess watches. These unique timepieces, featuring chess notation on the watch face and Richard Reti’s 11-move checkmate over Savielly Tartakower engraved on the back, have been exclusively designed and produced for the event, by Von Doren.
It’s Your Move: Von Doren Grandmaster Mark II
As we write, two chess grandmasters are battling for world domination. They are vying for the World Chess Championship title in London. Magnus Carlsen from the home of Von Doren in Norway and Fabiano Caruana from the USA, are currently tied at 4 games all. Eight of the 12 games they have played in the world championship match are over.
Von Doren says…checkmate..
One of the beautiful things about the game of chess is that when a player reaches a certain level of sophistication, the moves, the pieces and the strategy have a transcendent quality. Meaning, that the game itself can be applied to life itself. A true chess player begins to take the angles, the maneuvers and the tactics of the game, and lays them against the backdrop of the world around them.
ONE TO WATCH
It's Time for a New Era. Kind is delighted to be collaborating with an exciting player in world-class timepieces - Von Doren. Not only will Kind be responsible for the overall branding of this unique Norwegian wristwatch company, we are also collaborating on the future design of the watches themselves.

Von Doren Fine Timepieces
Øyvind VonDoren Asbjørnsen realiserer drømmen om eget klokkemerke.
I det 2016 nærmer seg slutten, har et nytt norsk klokkemerke nylig blitt lansert. Bak merket står den norske filmskaperen Øyvind VonDoren Asbjørnsen. Enkelte vil kanskje dra kjensel på Asbjørnsen fra hans arbeid, kanskje spesielt med dokumentarene «Prinsen av sjakk» og «Magnus», om sjakkgeniet Magnus Carlsen.
Von Doren has vintage style I can dig
Over the past year or so, we have seen a lot of “me too” sort of watch designs hitting Kickstarter, and it has started to get old. I mean, how many thin, minimalistic, two-handed watches can we really handle? Well, of those clone designs, I say no more. When it comes to something like what we’re seeing from Von Doren, though? That I definitely do not mind seeing.
Jotunheim Lady, la montre féminine élégante
On ne voit quasiment que des montres masculines ou dites « mixtes » sur La Petite Trotteuse, mais pourtant il existe encore bel et bien des montres vraiment pensées pour les dames.
Alors que la mode est aux montres multi-sexe, une marque norvégienne, Von Doren Timepieces, a mis au point une montre féminine vraiment très réussie
