What do Ben Stiller, Viggo Mortensen, and Tobey Maguire all have in common? Besides solid acting reels, they’ve all spent time in Iceland, and left the country wearing one of Gilbert O. Guðjónsson's watches. But only after taking a photo with the island’s most famous watchmaker, of course.


In fact, one of the walls at JS Watch Company, a little shop in downtown Reykjavik, is entirely covered with photos of celebrity clients – Tom Cruise, Quentin Tarantino, and Jude Law are also there, amongst others. Naturally, it’s what most shoppers want to talk about. "He was in Iceland?" they ask. "You met him?" and "Was he nice?" are also common questions Gilbert answers several times a day

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
