ANDREAS INGEMAN begins on the west coast of Norway, when the creator of the watch, Stein, was nine years old. His father gave him his grandfather's watch to take care of. More than twenty years later, he finds the well-kept watch looking through some old stuff. The old inherited watch then becomes his inspiration for designing his own modern version of it, adding self-designed straps. He names them Andreas after his father, and Ingeman after his grandfather.
