Making Time Stand Still

Tim Cook and team Apple just released the advent of a revolution in time keeping and smart watch technology; so why is Pad & Quill, crafter of exemplary cases and bags for all things Apple, rambling on about making time stand still?  Simple, the battery life of the new Apple Watch is somewhere south of 24 hours and the watch needs to be recharged every night.

We believe even this simplest of acts should be a beautiful extension of the design and engineering prowess which is exemplified in the Apple Watch.  So, we drew inspiration from Brian’s grandfather, an Irish Canadian, World War I veteran and lifetime salesman for Firestone tires (which at the start would have been revolutionary, as the company founded in 1900 pioneered mass production of the pneumatic tire).  At one point, Grandpa Mac’s unflinching work ethic and exemplary customer service was awarded with a timeless, Elgin gold pocket watch.  Each night, He wound that watch and set it by his bedside.

As we contemplated the life changing potential of the Apple Watch and coordinated Research Kit and Health Kit software, in addition to the complex process of metallurgy and horology represented in the final product, it compelled us to reflect on the expansion of time past and future.  As we look back, we see the virtues of dedication, respect for customers, craftsmen and service partners, and an unwavering commitment to excellence embodied in a great man’s watch, and as we look ahead, we see unlimited potential for those who dream and work and strive to bring change and beauty to the world around us.

With these timeless thoughts in mind, we crafted The Luxury Pocket Stand for Apple Watch, The Luxury Travel KitTravel Pouch and The Roll Up Kit for Apple Watch.  A gorgeous celebration of ageless craftsmanship and appreciation for the beauty found in natural resources.
