Established in Yorkshire, Weird Ape founder Stefan initially set up the brand out of frustration when searching for a watch. Stefan wanted a watch that stood out. A head turner. But he wanted to pay a reasonable price. In the end, he couldn’t find anything different, so like many others he settled for the traditional overpriced, generic looking watch.
After a month of wear, not a single friend had even noticed it. Frustrated with the purchase he took the watch apart to see if it was really worth the price. With the watch in pieces around him, an epiphany happened. He decided he could design his own watch that would get noticed. High quality materials and a look that went against the mainstream. After 12 months of rigorous testing and desiging, the first Weird Ape watch was introduced to the world. Since then this Yorkshire brand has since gone on to gain cult classic status around the globe.
