Just In Time: Larsson & Jennings

Larsson & Jennings watches

A Larsson & Jennings watch is the embodiment of simplicity and understated-cool. Sleek and minimal, they boast an undercurrent of refined luxury. We caught up with Andrew Jennings, one half of the Anglo-Scandinavian brand...

How did the initial idea for Larsson & Jennings come about?

Larsson & Jennings started four years ago with a Swedish friend and an inherent love of watches. I inherited a Rolex Daytona 6239 from my uncle when I was at school (which I was never allowed to wear) and loved the vintage style. As I grew older, I started to see a gap in the market for something a little more contemporary but with a classic feel, and Larsson & Jennings was born.

How do your two nationalities complement one another during the design process?

Every watch we create blends together the signature design ethoses of both nations. The pared-back, minimalist feel of the dial hails from Sweden, whilst the colourways, slim case and Roman numerals are hallmarks of classic British dress watches and design. It’s the contrast of these two styles that sets us apart from other brands.

Do you have a particular type of person in mind when designing your watches?

Our customer is design-savvy, sophisticated and has an appreciation for a quality Swiss Made product, so we always look forward to how they’re going to interact with our new collections.

Scandi-cool has become a major style trend; how would you sum up the Scandinavian aesthetic?

At the centre of Scandinavian style is both minimalist design and function – both of which allow for the other. Everything that is on a product must serve a meaningful function and that’s something we embody in our watches, by stripping back any unnecessary design additions and featuring only the key functions so you can tell the time at a glance.

Do you have a favourite collection? What’s next for Larsson & Jennings?

We’ve recently launched the Automatic Series – a first ever series of Larsson & Jennings watches with automatic mechanical movements, which has always been a pipeline dream for the brand, so we’re very excited about that. Next year we’ll be extending that particular series, and introducing a chronograph to our collection too.
