Founded in Glasgow, Scotland in 2013, Paulin Watches is a design-led watchmaker specializing in simple, quality timepieces that draw inspiration from modern design. The brand was founded by the three Paulin sisters, great-granddaughters of George Henry Paulin — a well-known sculptor who has sculpted several iconic war memorials throughout the UK. When looking at the offerings from Paulin Watches, it’s clear that the eye for design and artistic talent stayed in the family. The brand tries to use UK-based parts and processes whenever possible, which can be seen on the Neo’s dial — a collaboration with UK-based brand, anOrdain. They also focus on sustainability and bringing art to their community through local talent showcases and workshops. Having never heard of the brand prior to checking out these watches, it’s great to see that they’re as invested in their watchmaking pursuits as they are their own artistic community.
The watch we’re looking at today is the “Neo”. It comes in three dial configurations — silver, yellow, and blue, each with their own accent colors. With a modern looking dial design, simple, yet interesting case, and reasonable price tag, there’s a lot about the Neo to break down. Let’s take a closer look at these fun design-led watches from the Glasgow-based brand.
