An explorer, curious about travel and intrigued by time, Matthew Cule set out on his journey with a mission to create watches inspired by the world and a desire to protect it.
Your CuleM will become a time capsule of your experiences; a reminder of the places you’ve been and is designed to inspire you to explore further.
The perfect travel companion, each CuleM Skyline GMT watch will delight you with the iconic landmarks and buildings of London, and the practical functionality of dual time.
When you bought this watch you planted 100 trees in the CuleM forest in Madagascar, protected over 25,000 square metres of threatened rainforest and contributed locally to London based charity Blueprint for All.
The 24 destinations engraved on the open caseback, frames the movement of the watch. This watch encapsulates over a century of traditional Swiss watchmaking skill, exemplifying reliability, precision and perfection.
You will discover over time a host of details on the dial that offer clues to the brand’s heritage, such as the red tip on the GMT hand which represents the Welsh dragon tail, an important symbol from Matthew's home nation of Wales. Evidence of the passion and story that has been stitched into every element of the watch.
London based charity Blueprint for All, formally known as the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, runs high impact inclusivity programmes which “work with disadvantaged young people and communities, providing tangible opportunities that enables them to thrive, whilst driving systemic change in organisations and society”.
CuleM. Watches for the World.
Matthew Cule, founder and Chief Executive of CuleM says:
“We are proud of our new Skyline GMT collection which we designed to celebrate London and New York City.
These are cities which are inspirational, not only to those who live there, but also to people around the world.
A CuleM watch means helping to protect the planet and contributing to the communities that inspired our watches, so we are thrilled to be contributing to local charities based in these cities in addition to our usual partners for this special collection.”
