Kristjan Eyjolfsson and Struthers London cut ties


Goldsmith Kristjan Eyjolfsson has withdrawn from the eagerly awaited timepiece collaboration with Struthers London.

The watch, which was thought to draw heavily on the Struthers’ expert knowledge of antiquarian horology and Eyjolfsson’s Scandinavian influences, was set to be revealed at SalonQP next week.

The weekend announcement gave no reason for the dissolution of the partnership between the former Birmingham School of Jewellery alumni but it is thought to be because of personal circumstances, rather than professional reasons.

The watch was to use a heavily modified London pocket watch movement from 1880 as its base.

The partnership was conceived to be a nod to the traditional, historical collaborations between watchmakers and experts in other fields who would produce other elements of the finished watch.
