Limerence Watches - Norwegian Designed Luxury Watches
Limerence Watches - Norwegian Designed Luxury Watches

Limerence is a state of mind, which results from a romantic attraction to another object of love. From this, we wanted to create a new experience for watches. We have designed two series of classical watches with our love for watchmaking. Our ambition is for you to love your watch and want to wear at all occasions. Every man and woman deserves a luxury watch that will last for centuries and withstand the test of time. With that in mind, we focused on finding the right quality parts to create a luxury watch with as much value as possible.

 

 

 

 

 

For the first collection of automatic Limerence watches, we found inspiration in the vast nature that stretches from Lindesnes in the south to Kinarodden in the north in the country of Norway. In nature we see perfection; it has mesmerizing colors, amazing shapes, beautiful sounds and a special energy. We tried to capture how the environment keeps changing as the seasons pass on. The ocean has been a particularly strong influence in this collection; both the deep fjords of Geiranger and the grand Arctic Ocean.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We at Limerence believe that the quality of the watch is largely determined by the movement because it is the very heart of the watch. We searched and tested several movements before we chose one of the biggest and renowned manufacturers, ETA of Switzerland. The ETA movements are well known for their durability and the 2824-2 has been called the movement that never stops.

 

The automatic collection uses the ETA 2824-2 Swiss made high-quality movement. Exactly what you would expect when you buy a luxury watch; the best possible movement at an affordable price. The movement was carefully chosen to ensure the quality of our watches and give you a watch that will continue to tick away for years to come.

 

ETA SA Manufacture Horlogère Suisse is a Swiss watch manufacturer and one of the most dominant players in the luxury watch industry. Founded back in 1856 by Eterna, the history of ETA predates that by more than half a century. The movement features 25 jewels and are based on the Eterna 1427 designed back in 1961 and have been used in thousands of mechanical watches before from some of the biggest brands in the watch industry. It is accurate, durable, loved by collectors, and one of the best movements for three-handed watches in the price segment.

 

 

 

Collection 

With the first collection, we gave the classic watch a new approach and looked at our surroundings in Norway to seek inspiration. With the lively nature, it was not hard to find inspiration for our collection. 

 

The Ocean plays a large role in our lives and it holds two of Norway's biggest treasures. That is why two of the watches in the collection was designed with the ocean as inspiration. The Arctic Ocean features a silver sunburst dial with blue hands and a silver watchcase. It is very masculine and powerful similar to the ocean. The Ocean Blue features a sunburst blue dial with gold hands and a gold case. The last but not least among the automatic watches is called the Northern Elegance which features a sunburst chocolate brown dial with rose gold hands and a rose gold case. The models are 39,5mm wide with 45,5mm lug to lug and features a 20mm premium leather strap.

  

 

 

 

 

Arctic Ocean

The Arctic Ocean dial is all about bold simplicity. The silver sunburst dial with the blue markings makes this classic watch feel masculine and powerful just like the ocean. A sweep second hand powered by the ETA 2824-2 movement glides effortlessly around the minimalistic dial.

For those who appreciate uncluttered functionality and design, this watch will give you timeless elegance. With the Arctic Ocean, you have the possibility to tailor it to any outfit by changing over the straps to one that suits the occasion perfectly and reflects your style.

 

 

Ocean Blue

The Ocean Blue model takes its inspiration from the Norwegian fjords where the water has a crystal clear deep blue color. The pureness of the water can take your breath away and with the dial of the Ocean Blue, you will experience the same feeling when you put it on. The colors of the watch remind us of the colors you usually find inside an old wooden boat and has a magnificent glow in the sunlight.

The color of the dial has been one of the biggest achievements as it also reflects a hint of green in certain lights, exactly like the water in the fjords. Eminently wearable, this lovely watch has been designed to suit every occasion. Elegant and smart, slim and comfortable on the wrist.

 

Northern Elegance

The Northern Elegance was inspired by the famous church Nidarosdomen located in the city of Trondheim which reflects the elegance and the perfection of this watch. While we still kept it masculine like when the Vikings mixed the rose gold and steel. This gives the watch the perfect balance between beauty and strength.

Pure and minimalistic, this watch will appeal to those in search of a classic watch with a look of elegance. Characterized by the brand's signature watch, indices, and subtle date window, the design offers a beautiful look. Complemented by a polished rose gold stainless steel case makes this watch the ultimate accessory. This watch gives you a look that effortlessly embodies timeless elegance.

 

 

We dedicated a large part of the planning of the watch in choosing the right materials. The ambition is to give you the best value for your money, which is why we only settled for the best materials we could find while keeping to cost to a minimum. From the first prototypes, we improved the quality in several parts raising the production cost by 20 % without changing the price for you.

 

Watch Case 

Have you ever given much thought to the stainless steel that your watch is made of? You may have thought that all stainless steel is the same; it is a kind of metal alloy that contains iron, carbon, and chromium. In fact, there are several different types of stainless steel. The different types of stainless steel differ in the metal composition. Most watches are made with 201 stainless steel or 304L stainless steel. They are cheaper to produce but they are less corrosion-resistant and magnetic-resistant.

 

Many luxury watchmakers put great emphasis on the fact that their watch cases are made of 316L surgical grade stainless steel, as do we. 316L is a grade of stainless steel that has extra-low carbon content and is extremely resistant to corrosion such as seawater or acidic liquids. 316L is also resistant to magnetic, unlike the general-use stainless steel grade of 201 or 304L that most watches use.

 

For an automatic watch, it is of utter importance that the watch is as resistant to magnetic fields as possible in order for the watch to function properly. With Molybdenum added, it gives 316L a better overall corrosion-resistant property than 304L. Therefore the material is widely used in diving equipment due to the materials high corrosion-resistance. That is why you can wear your watch in all elements without having to worry.

 

Glass

We choose a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment. The sapphire glass has many advantages over plastic because of its scratch-resistant surface and will make your watch look new for a longer period. The sapphire crystal is equipped with an AR coating on the inside, limiting to a very low level the reflection on the crystal, and bringing the glare almost to zero. The thickness of the AR layer is properly chosen to a destructive interference between the two reflective waves that will occur and which will decrease the reflected wave in the glass.

 

Strap

All of our watches have a strap made from premium Italian leather that fits perfectly on your wrist. The strap has a crocodile print on it and the Deep Blue has contrasting stitching with white stitches while the Arctic Ocean and the Northern Elegance have the stitching in the same color as the straps.

It all started with a dream; the whole of the team had developed an interest for watchmaking in the early years.

Two entrepreneurs and one jeweler had a dream for years. We always loved automatic watches and collected a whole lot of them. But could we make our own luxury brand? That became our mission and the mission became a life-changing movement.

The inspiring thing for us is to strive for perfection, not to take shortcuts because quality needs time. We have spent the last years researching and looking for the best materials from several different producers. We have also turned to some of the best professionals from the watch industry to put together our dream watches that is going to last for centuries and generations to come.

Limerence is changing the current market in the segment of luxury watches. We want to build a bigger audience towards horology and fine timepieces.
