Story Collection #5 with Skye London - Contemporary Men's Watches
Having drawn inspiration from the Isle of Skye - home of one of the founders - this brand has created high quality watched worth exploring. This is their story.
How did your brand came into being?
We’re two friends that have always had a passion for wristwatches and style and we felt we could create a range of classic, clean watches that were better than anything else on the market. For the brand name we drew inspiration for the stunning isle of Skye, where one us spent a childhood, the simplicity and beauty provide the perfect inspiration for the brand.
What is your background - how did start or get involved in your company?
As with most entrepreneurs, holding down a day job is always necessary, so our company was started by putting in many hours on evenings and weekends working designs, the website, photography and all the other areas key to launching a successful ecommerce business. It was living in such a dynamic place as London gave the two of us the drive to do it, to create something from nothing and build a men's watch brand that could be loved not only here in the London and the UK, but by people from around the world.
How would you describe the style in which your product fits and what do you think is the connection with The Cultured Gentleman’s style?
As far as we are concerned, the cultured gentleman is all about effortless style, Skye London’s range of minimalist, clean, classic and simple styles fits perfectly with this.
What achievements are you most proud of?
The simple fact of creating something that people admire and want to wear everyday is something really makes us proud.
Which future ventures would you like to share?
We have desires to launch a range of quality menswear accessories, however the focus at the moment is on our watches, so look out for the launch of our next range later this year.
