Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free...
Sailing to the high seas is a passion for many. They enjoy the vastness of the ocean, and love the wind tingling on their skin. But what can set you apart from those who sail free is the global lifestyle brand Sperry Top-Sider, who just got more stylish as it ventures beyond its authentic original boat shoe with its line of watches in true Sperry fashion.
Founded by Paul Sperry in 1935 during one of his numerous adventures out at sea, Sperry Top-Sider is famous for its boat shoe collection. And mind you, these shoes are not just for men, but they carry a line for ladies as well. Armed with his "passion for the sea", Sperry reportedly observed how his dog ran across wet surfaces without slipping, inspiring him to create these shoes.
And now in the Philippines, aside from the boat shoes, Sperry offers stylish products that shows the spirit and freedom of the seafaring lifestyle. Presenting another Sperry milestone is expanding its product line with sailing-inspired timepieces.

“In gratitude to our loyal Sperry fans, we’re bringing in the watch collection for them to embrace the seagoing lifestyle beyond the broad spectrum of footwear that we offer,” said Linfred Yap, Managing Director of Urban Time, sole distributor of Sperry watches.
Filipinos who love to live life in, on, and around the sea can now enjoy its line of watches that are anchored on the brand's rich sailing heritage. The timepiece collection features details taken from the Authentic Original Boat Shoe such as the dial’s Razor Siping texture and well-known Boat in the Box logo while the straps are made from Sperry’s “well-loved” leathers, accentuated by Sperry Top-Sider grommets, skip-lace straps and top-stitching. Other design elements such as the Compass Rose Crown, luminescent hands and applied indexes are inspired by vintage nautical aesthetics.
