A journey into the unknown

Fratello is proud to announce an exciting new collaboration with the Norwegian microbrand Straum. We present the Fratello × Straum Jan Mayen Limited Edition. Excitingly, Fratello played an important part in the development of this entirely new model. The Jan Mayen collection is a refined follow-up to the brand’s wildly successful debut model.

A close collaboration

When Straum emerged during the pandemic, we sat up and took note. Straum’s inaugural model, the Opphav, was one of the more stunningly beautiful and aesthetically ambitious models we’d ever seen from a true microbrand. We contacted Lasse and Øystein, the men behind the brand, to explore their appetite to work together on a limited-edition watch, given our enthusiasm for their work. Straum set out to design this new model while closely consulting with the Fratello team at the various stages of the design process. Together with Straum, we bounced ideas around for the best part of 12 months and overhauled the original design, finally resulting in the stunning watches we proudly share with you here.

Attention to the details

Straum shrank the case down to 39mm while slightly widening the bezel, which created a more refined wearing experience. They also switched to a traditionally subtle domed sapphire crystal, resulting in less distortion and easier viewing of the gorgeous fiery dial inside. The case measures a compact 45.82mm from lug to lug and just 11.3mm thick (or 9.9mm excluding the crystal). If you look carefully at the fully integrated bracelet, you’ll notice the brushed surfaces with beautifully polished accents. The perfect transition and sharp execution of the finishes are things typically seen at much higher price points.

Inspired by the rawness of the Norwegian landscape

Those familiar with Straum’s Opphav collection will know how it is inspired by the natural rawness of Norway’s landscape. Straum wanted to harness that again for the follow-up collection, turning to inspiration from experience. A grueling trip into the harsh, unknown landscapes of Jan Mayen defined the concept and completed the evolution. The Fratello × Straum Jan Mayen Limited Edition’s visually arresting dial is inspired by the Beerenberg volcano, which dominates Jan Mayen’s northeastern skyline. We took inspiration from the volcano’s fiery basaltic lava interior for the color and texture pattern of our limited edition. Light play, despite the cliché, was important, and the beautiful combination of fumé color and glossy/metallic sheen created a stunning visual experience.

Now with more power!

Based on Fratello’s recommendation, Straum adopted the La Joux-Perret G101 for the Jan Mayen collection movement, largely due to its impressive ~70-hour power reserve. It also uses a tungsten rotor held on a ball race with three screws securing it in place. These are features usually reserved for more premium movements, such as ETA's 2892-A2 or Sellita's SW300-1. Additionally, the G101 has a superior finish with skeletonized, exposed wheels and a nicely beveled outer edge. The upgraded finishing and technical capability of the G101 made it the logical choice for the Jan Mayen collection. The movement is visible through a screw-down case back with a special Fratello engraving.

Ready to join your adventures

The Fratello × Straum Jan Mayen Limited Edition will be available for pre-order for one week, beginning April 13th at 4:00 PM CEST and ending on April 20th at 4:00 PM CEST.
