My name is Hakon-André Blad, the founder of Hvitsten Timepieces, which is a newly founded watch company based in Norway.
Watch companies are definitely not something Norway is famous for - in a matter of fact only one (1) company is known to the outside world. We thought it was tragic that the world would not get to experience Norwegian design, so Hvitsten Timepieces was born.
The brand was founded in the beautiful small town, Hvitsten. The small town is a hidden and often forgotten pearl with Norwegian nature. Old traditional houses, farms and grass on the roofs are just some of the things that may be seen upon visit. We want to build on just that, old norwegian nature and traditions. Then Aurora was born, a timepiece that combines a minimalistic Norwegian design with true craftsmanship.

Aurora - Tommy Østgaard Edition
A couple of weeks ago we announced that we had partnered up with the rising Norwegian motorsport star, Tommy Østgaard.
Having won the Formula Basic Factor-x series in 2011, and making his international debut in 2012, Norwegian-born Tommy (dob: 8 March 1993) has set his eyes on the Michelin Clio Cup Series with Protyre title in 2013.
Following in his father’s footsteps - a former motorsport driver in multiple genres - Tommy started his racing-career at an early age. Already when he was 15 when he got the chance to make the step into single-seaters, driving in the Scandinavian Formula Basic Championship, and in 2011, Tommy to proved his talent and speed by finishing on the podium 18 times in a row out of 19 races, winning 10 of them.
Therefore we are very excited to announce the official Tommy Østgaard Edition of Aurora.
The timepiece comes with a handcrafted stainless-steel casing and matt black dial. In the box you will also find a personal letter written and signed by Tommy Østgaard himself.Want to know more about Aurora and how you can get your hands on one - visit our newly launched IndieGoGo campaign!
