VEJRHØJ is an independent watch brand located in Copenhagen, Denmark. We merge natural hardwood, stainless steel and Nordic minimalism to create designs that are simple, yet distinctive.
We might have a preference for simplicity and natural materials, due to our Scandinavian design heritage. But at the same time, we are also dreamers that aim to challenge the status quo by creating bold designs that stand out from the ordinary. We do so by combining wood, steel and Nordic minimalism into unique timepieces.
VEJRHØJ lends its name from the high hillsides next to the sea where our founder, Janus Aarup, grew up.
VEJRHØJ was founded in 2013 by Janus Aarup, who set out to create a Nordic watch brand based on his passion for design, craftsmanship and timepieces.
"There are so many watch brands on the market and there is a lot of competition. But wooden watches were more skater-oriented, bold and flashy at the time. That's why I designed a simple yet discrete wooden watch that is simple, thin, stylish and still edgy" says Janus Aarup.
