William L. 1985: Vintage Style Watches

by - November 30, 2016

I can never leave home without a watch, that is certain. If ever I do, my day feels incomplete knowing that I forgot the most important accessory in my whole ensemble. I unconsciously flip my left hand thinking that I have the time, but I don't. Which is why, I find myself drawn to watches these past few years, especially the classic and timeless looking ones that you can wear forever. :) 

A few weeks back, I was able to witness the launch of a new brand that recently arrived here in Manila and that's William L. 1985 - Vintage Style Watches.

William L. 1985 wants to democratize watches, breaking traditional codes by providing affordable quality watches. Design was inspired by an iconic 50s chronograph, while modernizing the lines into a current one, with always attention to details.

Oppositions, paradoxes that come together to create a unique product.

With Blogger friend Sef Tiburcio :)

William L. 1985 was founded by Guillaume Laidet, a young timepieces aficionado who use to work in the Swiss watch industry. After several years at the service of some of the most prestigious watchmaking companies, he decided to start his own brand, aiming at offering meaningful collections inspired by a 50s vintage chronograph that he inherited from his grand-grand-uncle.

We were grace by founder, Guillaume Laidet at the launch and the dapper ambassadors, Gino Santos, Fabio Ide and James Deakin. :)

A piece of William L. 1985 is priced at Php 11,700. Each vintage chronograph timepiece is conceived in Paris and manufactured in Shenzhen, enabling the brand to compete in this price range. :) 

So, whether you're in a suit or casual style, these watches will definitely be the perfect accessory to complete your outfit. :)

William L. 1985 is available at White Halo, SM Aura | My Diamond, Shangri-la Plaza, Glorietta 4, SM MoA, Robinsons Place Ermita, Gateway Mall, Festival Supermall, Lucky Chinatwon Mall, Sm Megamall | My Tempo, Resorts World and SM North Edsa.
