Olivier Meylan

Drool time! Olivier Meylan are a Devon company making quality but affordable limited edition Swiss heritage watches.

Loads of cool things come from Switzerland: chocolate, cheese, Roger Federer…and now we have Olivier Meylan, a trés cool watch maker who create limited edition, men’s and women’s Swiss heritage watches based right here in Devon, Exeter to be precise.

They’ve caught Muddy’s eye because they’re totally gorgeous, have the same quality Swiss movements as the ones found in the likes of TAG Heuer and Tudor and we can actually afford one!

We have owner David Meylan to thank for this timely blessing, a half-Swiss entrepreneur who has watch-making in his blood, courtesy of a Swiss grandfather who trained in watch-making in the capital of the watch world, Vallée de Joux.

And we’re not the only ones who have clocked David’s timepieces – some big Devon players, and we mean literally, have too, including Exeter Chiefs and England winger, Jack Nowell who collaborated in creating a limited Jack Nowell edition.

Chef Michael Caines MBE wears one and markets them via Lympstone Manor, his high-end hotel near Exmouth. The Bijoux women’s range adorns the wrists of a number of well-known Swiss supermodels, but closer to home Muddy Award-winning gallery owner Laura Wall has created a seaside-inspired stainless steel beauty, perfect for beach babes.

And get this – rapper Snoop Doggy Dog has a few in his presumably large collection (David used to work in the music industry).

Go take look at the Olivier Meylan range. I guarantee you will be hankering like a lovesick puppy. With prices ranging from £189 to £999, they’re ideal gifts for birthdays, Christmas, Tuesdays…

Get hinting now – there’s no time like the present!
