#Summer2016

We’ve officially named June the month where the year truly starts. Let’s dust of those cobwebs and wave goodbye to a rather cold spring and look forward to see what the start of summer 2016 has in store for us!

With sports, festivals, design shows and a whole day dedicated to the most important man in our lives (our Dad!) there’s reason to celebrate and kick-off Summer 2016 in style!

Get Behind a Month of Sport

It’s a month of sport, so get the following dates in the calendar. With the Euro 2016 tournament kicking off on Friday 10th June, Royal Ascot taking place from Tuesday 14th June and Wimbledon arriving at the end of the month – there’s never been a better time to get behind our teams and sporting greats. Summer 2016 is a summer of sport! Speaking of greats, we all know who the real champ is, right?…

Give it up for Dad!

Remember it’s Father’s Day on Sunday, 19th June! And what better way to gift the one-in-a-million dad than with one our watches? We now sell our products across a wide range of platforms including Not On The High StreetEtsy, Spirit Boutique, and of course our very own store at W. T. Author!
