Today I want to present three different watch brands with the same aesthetic. Check out their stories and decide which products appeal to you more, but lets be honest they are very much alike.
The biggest and the oldest one in our group is Daniel Wellington. This Company was founded in 2011 by Filip Tysander in Sweden. So who is the mysterious Daniel Wellington then? Well the story behind this brand begins with a trip half way around the globe where Filip Tysander, 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 watches on old weathered NATO straps. His name? Yes you are not mistaken. That was Daniel Wellington.
What DW company is offering? Most of all they are making watches that are both instantly recognizable and so generic they verge on invisible. They come with polished-steel or rose-gold-colored cases, in five sizes from a diminutive 26-millimeter to a medium-large 40mm. The dials are all white, with slim lines marking each hour. The only thing that noticeably sets DWs apart from each other is the strap, which comes in a colorful nylons and a few leather options.
CLUSE is a brand from Holland founded in 2013 and as you can see it is much cheaper alternative for people who are in love with that kind of aesthetic. As you can check in CLUSE shop we can find a large range of colors discs and belts. And their story? Well is much simple then the previous one .This Brand is all about people who find beauty in simplicity, about being grounded, sophisticated and true to oneself. Away from distractions and focused on the things that are truly important in life. With this mindset they are creating timepieces that represent elegance and minimalism.
The new brand in our small review is ROSEFIELD also from Holland. Founded in 2014 brand is another alternative for more expensive DW. This time based on the founding principles of both Amsterdam and New York City, ROSEFIELD watches are created for free-spirited individuals. ROSEFIELD makes fashion-forward watches where classic meets modern. Where Amsterdam meets New York. Where function meets fashion. Watches combine the Dutch minimalist design on one hand with contemporary New York fashion aesthetics on the other hand. The result is a series of contemporary fashion.. Like all this brands, this also is using high quality materials, watches feature thin and elegant cases, matching perfectly with the attached hand crafted leather straps. All the leather straps are interchangeable, so you can easily match your watch with the rest of your outfit.The collection features both stitched leather straps for a classic look and clean-cut leather straps for a modern look.
Watches definitely can change your every day outfits and catch the attention of friends, can make you feel luxury without pledging a car or taking a cash loan. Visit on-line shops to check the brands offer and decide if this minimalist style is something you need.
