PARTNERSHIP FOCUSES ON SHARED BRAND FOUNDATIONS OF FUNCTIONALITY, DESIGN AND DURABILITY
Two brands, both rugged and both refined, Tire’d Watch Company and Land Rovers UK have announced their partnership. This is the first time the two brands have collaborated to share a vision that embraces extreme activities yet maintains luxury of the highest quality.
This partnership appeals to both Land Rovers UK and Tire’d’s key strengths and builds on the shared foundations of functionality, design and durability. The core identity of each brand centers on resurrection as watches and vehicles alike are brought back to life and redefined as landmark icons. Both brands emphasize the importance of substance and to successfully create a product and vehicle that suits every lifestyle.
The element of recycling is strong and a core value for both companies. Here at Tire’d, we sought to recycle tires and transform this material into a stylish yet versatile watch strap. In contrast, LRUK salvage old Defenders once thought to be lost or forgotten and restore these vehicles to their former glory, yet come prepared for our current climate, extreme, unforgiving and unpredictable.
Tire’d Watch Company founder and CEO, Ed Cole has been an avid fan of Defenders for decades and has always been on the look out for one himself. After searching tirelessly on the Internet for his dream Defender, he found Land Rovers UK and made contact. When speaking with Andy Hayes, Managing Director of LRUK, Ed recognized the passion he had for Defenders, as it mirrored his own philosophy he had for his watches. As Ed explains, “it was a relationship which began on the phone and Andy had every answer”. Ed reiterates that the staff at LRUK helped him feel comfortable and exerted no pressure on his decision.
I like immediate gratification. Awaiting my company’s watch prototypes and building this Defender are the only two times I have waited for something.
– Ed Cole, Founder and CEO of Tire’d Watch Company
