The Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast was a centre of engineering prowess and quality in the 20th century. Best known for building the Titanic, they were innovators who created huge vessels made for humans to experience the world in a way which hadn’t been done before. Fast forward to 2015 and two guys originally from Ireland, Gareth and Keith, founded a watch company made in the industrial and adventurous spirit of the shipyard; Wolff & Co.
Now based in Melbourne, Gareth and Keith make quality timepieces intended to enhance the individual quest for new experiences. The watches themselves are distinctive, minimal pieces and come in four classic colourways; black / white, black / grey, brown / white, grey / grey. They each feature leather straps and a 45mm stainless steel case; a good, functional size for being able to read the face clearly and quickly. They also feature Japanese Miyota 2115 quartz movement and have a calendar too. Being 3atm water resistant means they’ll be fine for daily wear when it comes to washing your hands or if you get caught in the rain.
Though Wolff & Co. watches will make a really nice, understated piece on your wrist thanks to the simple and clean designs, the statement feature in the form of the pop of orange on the face make them super unique. They’re a great choice if you’re after a high quality, minimal yet functional watch to wear every day.
