"Having been in the horology industry for over 2 years, I wanted to create something timeless and medieval that would be unique. I looked to other timepieces and the historical past for inspiration and ideas, that is how the "S1 Concept" watch came about," says founder Gulshan Singh. "I designed the 'S1 Concept' to be a daily use dress watch from ground up taking into consideration the key factors of quality and affordability to ensure whoever wore any of Velthor®'s watches felt satisfied. Watches have become complicated these days and the final outcome would be to bring the basics back to watches."
