Designed for the modern traveller, the Swiss-made watches in the collection start at €1,499.00 (approximately £1.350) including free worldwide shipping.
Watch collector Matthew Cule created CuleM Watches by combining his two passions; a love of travel and luxury watches of the highest craftmanship. Each watch is delivered in a miniature elegant luxury ‘travel trunk’ box.
CuleM’s World GMT Collection consists of three designs; The Portal, The Frame and The Lights. The dial of each watch shows a stunning and contemporary image of the world map. The Portal comes in blue, black, grey and gold; The Frame in blue, black and grey editions; and The Lights in blue, black and gold.
The Portal dial has a distinctly unique 3D re-creation of the world on its dial. The Frame dial has geometrically defined edges around the continents, and The Lights dial has tiny luminescent dots illuminating major cities by night. All show the local and destination time.
Each watch is presented in a round 40 mm case (in either stainless steel, black PVD or gold plated), protected by sapphire glass and a unique crown, inspired by the waves of the sea. On the open case back, CuleM’s top grade automatic ETA 2893-2 movement is clearly displayed and surrounded by an engraving of 24 destinations showing the correct time zones in both GMT and BST – allowing you to set the watch accurately to your destination.
Each watch comes with two elegant Italian leather straps with quick release pins. Only 300 pieces were made this year.
Matthew Cule, founder of CuleM Watches, said: “I love to travel, and I love luxury watches – and it’s these two passions that inspired the design and functionality of CuleM Watches. We live in an amazing world – and seeing it is a great way to open our minds and widen our thinking. The watch we wear on our travels helps us keep to the local time and acts as reminder of our adventures, whether they are in our own neighbourhood or on the other side of our world.”
