prom­i­nent.” A favourite among fre­quent trav­ellers, the oval face sports two di­als that al­low the wearer to have the time at the coun­try of ori­gin and that at the coun­try of des­ti­na­tion in a sin­gle time­piece.

The man­u­fac­ture’s com­mit­ment to help­ing the Philip Stein cus­tomer achieve bal­ance and har­mony ex­tends to its other of­fer­ings, which have ex­panded to in­clude fit­ness and sleep bracelets. “What we wish to put for­ward to cus­tomers through these prod­ucts is a 24hour well­ness so­lu­tion,” says Will. “Well­ness must be at­tended to dur­ing both the day and night­time; the hu­man body is at­tuned to dif­fer­ent fre­quen­cies while awake and asleep. Some guar­an­tors of a good, qual­ity life are proper sleep and reg­u­lar ex­er­cise, which our bracelets help ad­dress.” He main­tains that though the watches will al­ways be their core prod­ucts, other wear­able well­ness of­fer­ings will be part of the ros­ter in the fu­ture.

The new­est ad­di­tion to Philip Stein’s brand am­bas­sadors—a list that in­cludes lo­cal tal­ents such as TV per­son­al­ity-en­tre­pre­neur Kris Aquino and theatre ac­tress-singer Lea Sa­longa—is none other than Miss Uni­verse 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, who leads a busy life­style that en­tails ex­ten­sive trav­el­ling and hop­ping from time­zone to time­zone. Her cam­paign, aptly ti­tled “Two Worlds, One Uni­verse,” is a nod to her sta­tus as a global ci­ti­zen. “We are very care­ful when it comes to se­lect­ing our en­dorsers,” says Will. “It is more about the sort of lives they lead rather than sim­ply celebrity sta­tus. The mat­ter of ut­most im­por­tance is: do they em­body the Philip Stein phi­los­o­phy?”

Will fore­sees great things for Philip Stein’s fu­ture. The man­u­fac­ture con­tin­ues to ad­vance, and its co-founder be­lieves that the na­ture of the tech­nol­ogy they utilise puts them in a unique po­si­tion. “Philip Stein is ad­vanc­ing in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent way,” Will says. “No one else has been able to repli­cate what we have been do­ing. While ev­ery­one is look­ing to the right, we make sure we’re look­ing to the left. This is how we make noise. This is how we have made a name for our­selves.”

The Legacy Pe­tite Col­lec­tion was first in­tro­duced in the fall of 2015, with Lea Sa­longa as brand am­bas­sador
