THE VIKING – SVEND TVESKÆG.
Svend Tveskæg (Svend Forkbeard) is the greatest Viking King of Denmark of all time. He is the third King and our third watch in The Viking Collection bears his name. Svend got his last name, Forkbeard, because of his long moustache that looked like a fork.
To this day, English children still sing the song “London Bridge Is Falling Down” about Svend and his Viking navy storming London and conquering England in 1014. Unfortunately, he died just weeks after the great conquest, and Denmark lost power of England shortly after.
However, Svend is the symbol of the Danish Viking era that peaked during his years as king between 986 and 1014. The rose gold colour of the watch is a discrete symbol of the great treasures and wealth Svend conquered during his many raids with this navy in especially England and Norway.
With the long soft hands and the truly simplistic dial, this watch has a classic and timeless look. You can costomize the look of Svend by easily changing the strap – for example change the sand leather strap to a rose gold mesh strap.
