"Timothy Stone — A design enigma whose eponymous watch brand speaks for itself"
New York, the city that dazzles both day and night, inspired Scottish- born designer Timothy Stone to create his first brilliant but affordable collection of precious crystal-set bezel watches for the stylish, savvy, beautiful young women who live, work and play there.
But our story begins an ocean away in the gray granite city of Aberdeen where Timothy Stone grew up.
Timothy Stone was born and raised into a close knit family in the beautiful Scottish highlands. His father worked on one of the North Sea oil rigs, and Timothy grew up with a respect for hard work and an appreciation of his surroundings, but also a zest for life that is typical of his background.
His love of design was clear at a young age, and he was offered a scholarship to study in Glasgow at the renowned Scottish School of Art where he studied product design. During the summers, Timothy worked his way through art school on a North Sea oil rig alongside his father.
Returning to Glasgow for his final year at art school, he enrolled in an optional course in the art of watchmaking and design. There Timothy achieved the highest marks for designing and creating a unique collection of watches that brought him to the attention of one of the leading British design studios, where he was offered a job on graduation. Timothy Stone quickly worked his way up from creating 3D prototype models for other designers, to being given the opportunity to work with a team designing the millennial watch for one of the luxury international watch brands (whose name we cannot mention) in Switzerland.
Soft-spoken, but always with something to say, Timothy traveled the world for the company, promoting their stylish products from Milan to Tokyo and on to New York Fashion Week, where in 2001 he worked with a Manhattan-based design team to create a line of stunning watches and jewelery for models to wear on the cat walk. The clothes are long-forgotten, but the jewelry and watches that Timothy Stone and his team created were an absolute sensation, becoming the talk of the town and “must-have” accessories for any savvy, stylish young woman that fashion season.
New York loves success, and Timothy Stone and his team set up their own company creating the brand that’s on everyone’s lips.
Understanding that in today’s fashion-conscious society, one wear-with- everything watch just isn’t enough, Timothy Stone set about creating a stylish yet easily affordable collection of watches and accessories designed especially for you, to suit every occasion. Timothy Stone’s beautifully engineered watches not only keep time accurately, but their fine craftsmanship and up-to- the-minute design reflects who you are. As Timothy loves to say, “Creating beautiful watches is changing fashion one minute at a time.”
Today’s design team draws on Timothy Stone’s global experience, and the brand that he created and established is the leader in its field. We believe that by being disruptive and the first mover on the cutting edge of great design, we can continue to develop our watches and accessories in spirit as well as in time.
When selecting a color to represent our brand, we chose the ultimate aspirational background of gold to embody the passion and power our brand projects, along with the other values of warmth, glamor, desire and love. Our diamond-shaped logo symbolizes wealth, prosperity, wisdom, and success. Our fine quality watches are encrusted with glittering crystals from Swarovski® that define and accentuate the sleek lines and crafted workmanship of our products. The almost magical combination of our diamond logo and gold luxury branding creates an atmosphere and experience which reflects the glamor, passion and pride that a modern young woman can achieve by owning and wearing a Timothy Stone watch.
Each and every collection launched by Timothy Stone is the very apex of simplicity, sophistication and classic styling representing the on-trend world of fashion accessories. Achieving originality, while at the same time maintaining a clear design narrative, means constantly being innovative and leading the field.
Each step of the way, from concept to prototype, takes place in our own studio under the watchful eye of Timothy Stone’s trusted team, and only when they are confident that the design is perfect does manufacturing begin. Our lab specialists manually assemble each movement, which is then passed on to our quality control team who subject the watch to a barrage of tests. The prototype watch is also checked for resistance to physical impact, thermal fluctuations and endurance testing simulating years of wear. All the watch’s functions are tested under simulated conditions of stress far greater than anything likely to occur in normal, everyday use.
