We happily received a special HIS&HERS package today, these timeless timepieces from Daniel Wellington! Thanks so much to Nicole of TEMPO MANILA for our DW watches!!!
I LOVE WATCHES! And since I’m a sucker for classic pieces this brand definitely fits the bill for me. Their designs whisper “understated elegance”—it’s posh, sophisticated, and stylish without having to be flashy. It is the anti bling-bling. And reading the interesting story behind DW made me an instant fan! So who is this Daniel Wellington???
The story behind Daniel Wellington begins with a trip half way around the globe where Filip Tysander, the founder of Daniel Wellington, met an intriguing gentleman from the British Isles. The man had the inspiring ability to be gentlemanly but still relaxed and unpretentious. He had an impeccable style, and loved to wear his Rolexes on old weathered Nato straps. His name? Well, Daniel Wellington, of course.
A strong friendship emerged between the two, and our founder was inspired not only by the mans many great life stories but also by his class and timeless style of fashion. As we now know, he was so inspired that he decided to name his line of watches after him. We believe that we’ve managed to capture a bit of Daniel and his style in our watches, and a year to date, we trust that Daniel would be proud of what we’ve achieved.
Daniel Wellington loved to wear his Rolex watches on old Nato straps. We liked the idea and feel of the mix so much that we wanted to incorporate the idea into our own line of watches. However, we felt it important to make the watch thin and elegant – we wanted a clean design, without too many features, that would look good with the different patterns and colours of the classic Nato straps.-DW website
Patrick got the TRUE GENTLEMAN’s watch, perfect for his feeling GQ moments! Hihihihi! This is the CLASSIC SHEFFIELD watch for Men’s with a silver face–which matches Pat’s white gold wedding ring so perfectly.
Since I’m into BIG watches these days, I opted for a Men’s watch too. This way I could easily swap with the husband! Now I can steal his t-shirts and his watch too, genius! The DW women’s size however would be more suitable for petite women and for more formal events 🙂 I chose the CLASSIC CARDIFF watch because I instantly fell in love with the vintage leather feel, the beauty of this type of leather is that it gives you that worn out effect when you use it more often.
Best of all, you can wear your DW watches in multiple ways! All you have to do is purchase their NATO straps and you can have a “new” watch everyday. I love all the preppy designs for both men and women! “The straps themselves are an important part of the watch. Nato straps originate from the British navy, where divers would use the strong nylon straps over their wet suits. Even though they were originally made to avoid rust, we love the look and versatility of them. That’s why we wanted to create a line of different straps with different colours and patterns – but all with a strong bond to the British Isles.”-DW Website
