WT Author – Interview and About The Brand

Post by koimaster » July 28th 2021, 3:17pm

After seemingly coming out of nowhere to produce one of our favourite watches of the year – we caught up with Sam Holland and Jon Shakespeare to learn more about WT Author.

WT Author – Interview and About The Brand

We started off by asking Sam and Jon about their backgrounds.

WRUK: How did you get into watchmaking?
WTA: We are both Ex-Coventry University graduates, I studied Automotive design, and Sam Product design. We were a few years apart but met each other for the first time when we sat next to each other working for a watch company in Birmingham. That’s where our mutual love of watches started. Sam was the watch designer, and I was the packaging and graphic designer. So when we decided to start our own company, we naturally knew we had a lot of the skills already in place to hopefully succeed. Sam being the designer of the watches, tapping into all his technical know-how, and me on the graphics side. I think we’d had one of those days, and thought we could do just as good a job… the rest is history, and soon after we realised, just how much work and energy goes into starting your own business. We were incredibly naive really, but that was a good thing, as we’d probably have been too scared to take the plunge had we known just what was going to be involved.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
