CRAFTMANSHIP AND EMOTION
Van den Berg skylinewatches are authentic and tell a story about a city, its emotion, its modern technique and the ancient watchmaker’s craftsmanship. Within the watch a story of a city is portrayed, including a miniature of the city’s symbol or icon. An artistic piece, processed in precious metals that is part of an automatic timepiece.
What appends the most to the portrait of the skyline of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the capital of Brabant, is the skyline in and around the watch of the wearer’s beloved city. On the dial, you can find a subtle skyline of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, with the Sint Jan in the middle, which is a signal for the neighborhood and the pride of the city. A part of the skyline is also engraved on the sides of the case. The watch is stored in a leather casing where the typical skyline is portrayed along with the unique serial number of the watch.
“SKY LINE s-Hertogenbosch”
SINT JAN, SYMBOL AND SIGNAL
The pièce de résistance is hidden on the backside of the watch. Behind glass, you can see a handmade miniature of the most beautiful Gothic church of the Netherlands, the basilica Sint Jan, artistically stylized and processed in four types of gold and silver. THE symbol and the icon of the Burgundian city ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
Since the skyline and the city’s symbol are processed in the watch, the wearer shall feel connected to their home, anywhere and at any given time. To put this extraordinary combination and merge it in the Skyline watch, Willem van den Berg took the emotion of what makes the city and turned it into a visible craftsmanship in his own way. Art and passion are timelessly united in an authentic and exclusive watch.
