The mighty yawp echoes from valley to valley! VEJRHØJ! VEJRHØJ! VEJRHØJ!

This Copenhagen-based company has created a new watch made of wood and steel and features a nice quartz movement. Created by Janus Aarup and Tao Kitamoto, the watches cost about $159 and will ship in December.

“In 2016, we set out to build a collection of timepieces with a distinctive, yet simple design crafted from quality materials, which we could offer without including the heavy premium price that always follows Nordic design and quality,” writes the team. They’ve already done two other Kickstarters and they’ve already hit their goal.

The team is proven, the price is right, and it hits that Nordic sweet spot that gives me an umami shiver. Well worth checking out.
