About this project
Norwegians read this: Siden det ikke går an å legge inn mva. på prosjekter på Kickstarter, så er frakt kostnaden moms. Det vil si du slipper å betale toll og deklarere varen inn i landet. Total pris blir 1 875 kr. Du sparer da 1 425 kr av ordinær pris på 3 300 kr.
THE ULRIKEN COLLECTION
After having had many fashion watches over the years that didn't live up to my expectations, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create the ultimate fashion watch under $500! I wanted to create a timepiece that would look elegant on your wrist, show the time and last in both design and quality. That is why every BERG watch comes with a 5 year warranty!
I don't want you to buy a new watch every 2 year, that is why every BERG watch comes with a 5 year warranty. Instead I want you to be able to create a new watch to fit any setting, by being able to switch the straps in just a few seconds. It is easy and makes it feel like you got a whole new watch.
Inspired by the raw nature of Norway
As my inspiration comes from my hometown Bergen, which is surrounded by seven mountains, it was only natural that the first collection would be named after the tallest one, Ulriken. Bergen is a UNESCO world heritage city with a long history of trade and fishing. It is also the rainiest city in Europe, so the watches needed to be water resistant.
SALMON LEATHER STRAPS
When creating a timepiece with salmon leather straps it was important to me that the craftsmanship behind the strap reflected the quality of the watch. The tannery I ended up working with was ranked the #1 tannery in Europe in 2016 and is located on Iceland. The salmon skin that is used come from the Faroe Islands where it used to be a waste product, but is now being used in every BERG watch strap. The straps have a snap solution which makes it easy to change in just a couple of seconds.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
Risks and challenges
There are always a few risks involved when launching a new product. However I feel that I've tried to minimize the risk of the production by having close relationships with my suppliers and added an extra month into the estimated delivery schedule in case of any incidents
Duty/VAT charges: You will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges into your country. This does not apply for watches going to Norway, as the tax (moms er inkludert og går under frakt kostnad) is included as the shipping cost.
