Max René is also renowned for his successful watch collaboration with the Danish Bang & Olufsen-designer, Jacob Jensen, who is considered one of the world’s most influential industrial designers of the 20th century with his minimalist style known as Danish Modern. This partnership resulted in several watch collections,

and some of these featured in the permanent exhibition at Museum of Modern Art in New York. After three decades as a designer for prominent global watch brands, Max René has spent the recent years crafting a personal collection with selected partners from a lifelong career within the industry. The result is a line of ultra thin minimalist watches stripped of all disturbing elements while retaining the uncompromising quality and elegance you would expect from Max René.
