I love discovering new Scandinavian brands, so when Harper & Brooks contacted me I was delighted – especially since they are Norwegian (and Norway is always closest to my heart.)

Aurora is a new series of watches from Harper & Brooks inspired by the texture and composition of the Northern lights. The 590S in gold is a classic watch with a retro touch designed in Oslo, available in three different colour variations. Perfect for petite wrists, it features Swiss Movement from Ronda and Sapphire Crystal glass, while combining the beautiful brushed gold 34mm case and dial with an ultralight gold plated Milanese mesh bracelet.

“We believe the essence in strong design lies in the details. As Scandinavians we value modest and clean design principles, rather than excessive decoration. We take pride in using locally sourced materials like vegetable tanned leather from Tärnsjö Garveri in Sweden and organic wool material from Scandinavia.” – Harper & Brooks

What do you think? For me, the classic and timeless style fits perfectly in with my minimal wardrobe. It really adds that little extra something to my summer outfit.

*I was gifted the watch by Harper & Brooks, but all the thoughts and opinions are my own.
