TIME IS AN ESSENTIAL TOOL
FOR FINDING OUR POSITION IN THE WORLD
AND TAKING BEARINGS
FOR WHERE TO VENTURE NEXT.
Imagined in Copenhagen, ORLO watches are made with an active, cultured, contemporary lifestyle in mind. The watch is a symbol of curiosity and wanderlust. In the modern world, we live in, the spirit of voyage and adventure has just as much of a place in city living as it does on an outdoor adventure.
Steeped in timeless mid-century modern Scandinavian design principles, each ORLO watch is simple, minimal, functional, and beautifully versatile. Like a guiding star, we always return to these principles in the design of our watches as we evolve and innovate.
Our Creative Director and Founding Partner, Frederik Høltzel has a long history in watches and watchmaking runs in the family.
We decided to visit Frederik at his home on the island of Tåsinge in Southern Funen. Here we learned that Frederik’s great grandfather, Rasmus Jensen Jørgensen was a trained watchmaker who had a small workshop, which later grew into a watch store in Tåsinge where he had his own watch brand.
