Miang Copenhagen Flash comes from the hand of Danish designer Jan Egeberg. Designing a watch – a utility item and a piece of jewelry – is an elaborate and intricate process demanding attention to detail and quality every step of the way. Jan Egeberg’s extensive experience with Scandinavian design is clearly reflected in the watch, where high tech precision engineering meets carefully crafted graphic details and impeccable quality.
JAN EGEBERG HOLDS A DEGREE IN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN FROM THE ROYAL DANISH ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS, WHERE HE HAS WORKED AS AN INSTRUCTOR AND EXAMINER. HE HAS DESIGNED BANG & OLUFSEN PRODUCTS FOR DAVID LEWIS DESIGN, THE FORMER CHIEF DESIGNER FOR BANG & OLUFSEN.
EGEBERG HAS ALSO DESIGNED LIVING PRODUCTS FOR GEORG JENSEN, CUTLERY FOR GENSE AND FURNITURE FOR BOTH FREDERICIA FURNITURE AND ARTIE GARDEN. HE HAS WON NUMEROUS DANISH AND INTERNATIONAL AWARDS FOR HIS WORK.
The simple geometric forms are evident in every element of the watch. Jan Egeberg explains: ”The philosophy behind the main shape of the watch is to ensure that its appearance is attractive at every angle. During the design process, I spent just as much time working on the back as the front of the watch.”
The curve of the watch case aligns naturally with the wrist for a comfortable arm fit and attractive aesthetic, as the polished surface dynamically reflects the surroundings of its wearer in any setting. The case back is not envisioned as a foreign object – a trait commonly seen in most watches – but rather as an integrated part of the watch. The lugs extend naturally, reiterating the circular curve of the watch case. The distinctive crown stands apart from the watch case, underscoring its independent function. The simple and elegant graphic design of the watch dial ensures reading ease. Combined with its slender, hovering hands, the watch stands as a veritable instrument in the eye of the beholder. The automatic movement and distinctive blue rotor are visible through the exhibition case back, giving the wearer an even stronger sense of the precision mechanics.
The watch straps are made exclusively from high quality materials – Italian leather, suede or salmon skin, the latter of which is an attractive new alternative from our Brazilian supplier. We personally purchase all of the leather and thread, supplying it directly to the production facility to guarantee quality that meets our high standards. The stitching options include striking contrast colors to match the watch dial elements.
