About Tidssonen.no

Tidssonen.no is Norway’s leading watch blog, online community and social media channel for watch collectors and enthusiasts.

The website is recognized as one of the leading authorities on wristwatches in Scandinavia, providing news and thoughts on the latest industry trends, in-depth articles and coverage of the international watch fairs.

Since 2015, Tidssonen has provided watch-related content to DinSide.no – the lifestyle/consumer section of Dagbladet.no (one of Norway’s largest newspapers).

Tidssonen has appeared in several Norwegian media outlets such as Dagbladet, DinSide, Finansavisen, Hegnar.no, Klikk.no, TV2, VG and Vi Menn.



Jon Henrik Haraldsen is the founder and editor of Tidssonen.

His appreciation for mechanical timepieces began in his late teens, and he founded Tidssonen in 2007 at the age of 20. He is considered one of the most knowledgeable and influential voices on wristwatches in Norway.

In addition to his work at Tidssonen, Jon Henrik is a contributor to the Norwegian watch and jewellery magazine Basic Klokker & Smykker, and Finansavisen Fashion (“The Norwegian Financial Daily”). He has also written for publications such as Gull & Ur (the joint trade magazine of the Norwegian Watchmakers’ Association and the Norwegian Goldsmiths’ Association), Eksklusiv, and MANN.

Jon Henrik studied econometrics, financial derivatives and mathematics at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and holds a B.Sc. in Business and Economics from BI Norwegian Business School.

He is 29 years old and resides in Fredrikstad, an hour south of Oslo.


Erik Sutterud is a regular contributor to Tidssonen.

Erik is a sound engineer turned watchmaker, and the owner of Urmaker Erik Sutterud in Oslo – an “old school” watchmaking business focusing on service, repairs, restoration and sales. He is a respected personality amongst Norwegian watch collectors and enthusiasts, noted for his technical knowledge and enthusiasm.

His interest in watches began in the early 90s, and ultimately brought him down the path of becoming an autodidact watchmaker. Erik appreciates a wide variety of timepieces – both vintage and modern – but has a slight leaning towards the “golden age of horology”.

Erik resides in Oslo with his wife and four children.
