Stunning straps: JS Watch handmade watch bands

In 2005, a group of four ambitious, passionate and enthusiastic watch collectors had a dream come true. Under the guidance  of a master watchmaker they unveiled, after years of preparation, their own collection of wristwatches. Working on their ideas for years and when the time was right and the designs perfected they had a go for it. Their goal was to create a timepiece that would withstand the test of time and would be passed on from one generation to the next. In the years that have passed the idea has become reality and more so it has gained international admiration and following.

Those four men are the founders of the company JS Watch co. Reykjavik. They are Sigurdur Gilbertsson Technical-Director, Julius Heidarsson Pilot, Grimkell Sigurthsson Design and Marketing Director and Gilbert O. Gudjonsson Master Watchmaker who runs the workshop and store at the headquarters, Laugavegur 62, 101 Reykjavik, Iceland. 

The collection has made a huge impact on the market in Iceland and has made recognition all over the world, especially inside the circle of collectors. The idea of the collection is in a nutshell, design of the past that can find harmony in the present.


In addition to watches, JS Watch co. also make stunning handmade watch straps from genuine Alligator, Ostrich, Ostrich leg or Calf skin with the JS Watch co. Reykjavik buckle or optional deployment clasp available for most models. Recently they also released their sexy all new rubber straps for the 1000 metre SIF - N.A.R.T. collection.
