Georg Jensen Koppel 925 Limited Edition
April 7, 2013
Georg Jensen is a Danish luxury brand specializing in jewelry, cutlery, watches and other items for the home — with a focus on silver products. The Koppel 925 Limited Edition wristwatch features one of their specialities, a hand-hammered sterling silver dial. Sterling silver (925) is an alloy containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% of another metal, typically copper. Pure silver is too soft, which is why silver is alloyed with a harder metal such as copper when producing functional objects, such as the dial of a watch.
“The Georg Jensen signature hammer-stroke surface of the dial is created at Georg Jensen’s legendary silversmithy in Copenhagen, by a single silversmith working the polished metal.
The hammered surface is the mark of a true master craftsman and demands precision and expertise to create; his skilled and nimble fingers carefully tap the shining metal into the perfect dimensions and structure. Shining like moonlight, the silver dial perfectly complements the sophisticated slender black and blued steel hands, which gracefully glide across Koppel’s signature numberless dial.”
The Koppel 925 was produced in a limited edition of twenty unique individually numbered and engraved with the signature of the silversmith. The Koppel 925 Limited Edition comes in a wooden box with an engraved silver plate. It is currently available in Georg Jensen stores.
