About The Founder

 

 

After studying art and product design at University, Annette Allen worked as a graphic designer before setting up an in-house design team for a large UK watch company. She revolutionised designer watches in the UK through design, by pushing the boundaries on style and trends.

After seven years managing a design team, she realised it was time to quit her job and embark on a brand-new journey. With entrepreneurial flair, she started her own business designing watches for many leading brands and built up a successful company. In 2013, Annette decided it was time to put her own brand together and "Our Watch Label" was born.

With a focus on limited edition production and unique design details, Annette wanted to offer her customers something different, with a characteristically British twist. Growing in popularity worldwide, O.W.L will always retain this distinct point of difference and signature aesthetic, giving it a cult following amongst loyal fans of the brand.
