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.
The perfect travel companion, each CuleM Skyline GMT watch will delight you with the iconic landmarks and buildings of New York City, and the practical functionality of dual time.
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.
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.
When you bought this watch you planted 50 trees in the CuleM forest in Madagascar, protected over 25,000 square metres of threatened rainforest and contributed locally to New York City based charity GrowNYC.
GrowNYC’s mission is “to improve New York City's quality of life through environmental programmes that transform communities and empower all New Yorkers to secure a clean and healthy environment for future generations”.
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.”
