Ole Mathiesen

The proud watchmaker traditions of the company Ole Mathiesen can be dated back to 1845, when watchmaker Carl Matthæi and J. P. Christensen founded a watch company in Copenhagen. Master of the watchmakers guild Carl Matthæi became "Supplier to the Royal Danish Court" supplying timepieces to King Frederik the VII and Countess Danner. In 1919 it was taken over by Axel Mathiesen and later his son Ole Mathiesen who set out to design a collection of the finest timely yet timeless classical watches. Since 1998, Christian Mathiesen has represented the third generation, and together with his father Ole Mathiesen, they have developed the know-how which has placed the company, Ole Mathiesen, at the top of the Danish watch making industry. Through three generations, the company has maintained a unique continuity. In 2008 Ole Mathiesen was honoured with the Royal warrant; By Appointment to the Royal Danish Court.
