Honest Al keeps it sharp
Moving through life with a restless excitement for the new
Be it as cunning Detective Stephen Holder in “The Killing” or as Rick Flag in “Suicide Squad”, Joel Kinnaman is the Stockholm-born actor who has taken the world’s cinemas and TV screens by storm. Starting off as a young actor in films back in the early 2000s, Joel seems to have been motivated and focused on his goal to evolve in the artistry of acting from very early on. Regardless of a wallflower period in his early school days when he felt like the odd one out, Joel has always been daring enough to leave his comfort zone, toss negativity behind his back and move through life with restless excitement for the new.
Throughout the beginning of the 2000s, Joel played with ease and enviable talent in one excellent film after another. He graduated from Malmö’s Theathre Academy in 2007 and went on to act in nine Swedish films in the astonishing time of only a year and two months. Combine Joel’s “work hard, play hard” character with his daring personality and eagerness to experiment, and you get an ambitious professional that has an assured place atop the Swedish acting community.
Feeling like he had gone as far as he could on local ground however, he shares that his “drive and ambition” made him move to the States to pursue a truly international career. With movies like “Easy Money” and “Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo” swiftly going under his belt, Joel’s boldness to follow an acting path on foreign ground proved fruitful very fast. Since then, he has been a vital presence both in Hollywood and independent cinema, having shared the screen with Will Smith, Jared Leto and Viola Davis, among numerous others.
Regardless of the global recognition, Joel admits that Sweden will always be a true home for him. And there’s no better place than his birth city of Stockholm for him to further establish his motto of living with an open-mind and confidence! That’s why Joel joins forces with us, and we present to you a minimalist watch collection that’s all about authentic individualities and a bold style. An avid admirer of watches himself, Joel Kinnaman shares that he was drawn to Carl Edmond’s classic yet innovative approach to design – a mix of Swedish locality and Swiss ingenuity. The sleek and sharp watches keep up with Joel’s laid-back yet sophisticated personal style. And the high quality materials used in the production give them what the famed actor loves most about a luxury watch: “The feel of it!”.
